I remember one of my favourite Rupert Bear annuals from 50 years ago featured an episode in which Tiger Lily's father, who was a Chinese professor, had a small hemispherical platform with a T-bar control stick rising up from it which Rupert was able to use to fly around on.
I think he landed on an island populated by what were described as "Darkies", and he had to make a rapid escape when they surrounded him with a view to eating him for their supper.

I read that book, but never took that seriously.

Gravity is a man-made construct.

were our ancestors all just hovering in the air at one point in time and some asshole decided he didn't want everyone to fly? I don't know how you can invent gravity?

Dusty Female Cat on YouTube explains how gravity works. We are pushed down to the Earth, not sucked down.

@dustyfemalecat: The Controlled Opposition (Flat earth Society) promotes flat earth gravity by claiming the earth is moving upwards.

@bannedforhatespeech: There is No Gravity - The Vomit Comet (aka Zero G Plane) provides a protected environment for Free-Fall; unlike Sky-Divers who must Fall through differing air resistance based on speed and conditions. For the Sky-Diver, without the protected Cabin, air resistance increases with velocity until equilibrium is reached and acceleration stops; this is called terminal velocity.

@Lawi : Lmfao, that's better than my theory that it 'used to be flat', but mankind worked it out when they hit the dome with the Tower of Babel, and God had to reshape everything to stop us building towers so tall. He turned up the gravity as well, obviously

@Bond0077: No re-invention is necessary to describe the flat Earth for all that we see is governed by 3D Perspective.

Fascinating. There was a man in Florida, Ed Leedskalnin, who levitated 10 tons of limestone and built a castle. He took the secret to the grave.

yes, very interesting indeed... i remember that as well about Mr. Liedskalniņš... or is the "secret" there in plain sight for all to see? we just don't know where to look. or how to implement the tech.
