Re: Re: Riser Revisited

I once set a pitching machine at 100+ mph and sat behind the plate for ten minutes and caught some "monster" four-seamers. Does or can a baseball rise? Scientifically speaking, I'm not sure I want to post my responce.

If you "look" at a 100 story building from far enough away it "looks" like you could put it in your pocket. If you "look" at a long straight road it "looks" like it gets more narrow until its just a line, then it disappears. Do you take another road when you see that?

These are scientific facts. Like gravity. If you are unable to accept that, then you cannot contribute anything of value to a conversation.

How about how big the full moon looks on the horizon?
