Google’s LYIN!

Hello lovelies.  So if you google “What’s the curvature of the Earth”, the results are as follows:


Using the theorem of Pythagoras a2 = 39632 + 12 = 15705370 and thus a = 3963.000126 miles. Thus your position is 3963.000126 – 3963 = 0.000126 miles above the surface of the earth. 0.000126 miles = 12*5280*0.000126 = 7.98 inches. Hence the earth’s surface curves approximately 8 inches in one mile.

  Yea, actually it’s 8 inches per mile, squared. Look it up!!
