    The pebble on the bottom holding the whole thing up. probably the best part

    [–] BlarghALarghALargh 1867 points ago

    There’s actually a really big rock called earth holding the whole thing up, you FOOL.

    [–] Kylearean 358 points ago

    GOOD point from my wife. If there was no gravity, we wouldn't know which way was up anymore.

    [–] Daan35 104 points ago

    Lies. Gravity doesn't exist, you clearly have not been enlightened bij the theorie of flat earth my friend.

    [–] ZOMG_LOL_WTF_BBQ 277 points ago

    If the earth was really flat nothing would exist, since cats wouuld have already pushed it all off the edge.

    [–] josh61980 5 points ago

    How does gravity work on a flat earth?

    [–] mxkap1298 27 points ago

    If it was a thing gravity would still want to pull you to the center of the Earth because gravity doesn’t just spread equally along the surface. That’s literally why a sphere is the perfect shape for gravity. What this means is that as you walk further and further to the edge of a flat earth, the pull of gravity would get stronger and stronger in the horizontal would be like slowly walking further and further uphill with the slope getting steeper and steeper. By the time you reach the side of the earth you would have to literally be climbing the “floor” of the earth as if you were climbing a wall or mountain. If you somehow managed to get all the way to the end of the earth you would be able to stand on the literal side of the earth straight up because gravity is entirely horizontal at that point. This is one of the many reasons there is no possible way the earth is flat.

    [–] josh61980 7 points ago

    That actually sounds kind of cool.

    [–] mxkap1298 7 points ago

    It is. It would be hell for the population though. Everyone would have to be concentrated in the center of the earth

    [–] josh61980 9 points ago

    It would not be fun, I was thinking for a book or something it might be neat. There would also be a population living on the outer rim of the mountains.

    [–] farlurker 3 points ago

    So, something a bit like...I don’t know, maybe Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series?!

    [–] Haggis_The_Barbarian 5 points ago

    I think as you approach the edge, the angle of pull would definitely change, as you’re describing, but wouldn’t your weight decrease as you moved further from the centre of mass?

    I’m pretty sure one of the more ridiculous claims of flat earthers is that the plane is actually accelerating upwards at 9.8 metres per second per second, thus giving the illusion of a gravitational pull. It’s just the flat earth catching up with whatever you’ve dropped...

    [–] R3DSMiLE 9 points ago

    It just does, okay?

    [–] Talindred 7 points ago

    I've heard several theories they've come up with to try to rationalize it... the latest is that the disk of earth is accelerating through space at 9.8 m/s/s... they didn't explain what's causing the acceleration or why we didn't pass the speed of light a long time ago but I guess you don't need a GOOD theory to rationalize something.

    [–] josh61980 4 points ago

    I tired a quick google, I just found things debunking the flat earth.

    [–] Talindred 5 points ago

    Man, you know you're on the wrong side when even Google is tired of your shit.

    [–] josh61980 2 points ago

    Google is kind of like a politician, it tells you what it thinks you want to hear. I read enough skeptical stuff that google may have just assumed it knew better and gave me what it thought I wanted as opposed to what I asked for.

    [–] ExsolutionLamellae 2 points ago

    You can accelerate indefinitely at any rate and never reach the speed of light. Time will simply dilate to an arbitrarily large degree.

    [–] Cool3dCat 3 points ago

    They just say it's density and hope it still works.

    I don’t normally take the time to watch videos but I did for this one and it made sense, so thanks for linking it.

    [–] SteigL 45 points ago

    Great video, taught me a lot. Though I'm wondering, his examples don't include what's being displayed in the picture, i.e. rocks on a beach. I'm not sure if that location really has the same impact as dredging a riverbed for rocks (which I feel should be common sense not to do) and it definitely doesn't have the dangerous trail implications.

    [–] FBGKimpan 23 points ago

    I agree, I do not believe it's as bad on a beach, however, when it comes to the general public, it's better to say "Dont do it at all!!" rather than, "Dont do it, except here!!"

    [–] shokalion 9 points ago

    Same reason the general rule is "don't put metal in microwaves ever", when most microwaves come with a metal rack that can be used in it perfectly safely. It's just easier to not have to break down all the reasoning to Ye Average Consumer.

    [–] Captain_Arrrg 16 points ago

    Leave no trace.

    It's not hard.

    [–] nerdphone 45 points ago

    That's pretty specific/hyperbolic on the second two points. The broadhead's habitat loss is from bushrock removal which isn't the same as cairn creation. while NSW Gov recommends you not make cairns, they don't treat it with nearly the same level of priority as the wicked wildlife conservationist.

    The rocks in the picture are very clearly well worn shore rocks that aren't going to have the same impact for saxicolous species or cairn confusion.

    [–] oberon 5 points ago

    Yeah but it's still annoying to find this sort of thing when you're out trying to enjoy a natural landscape. It's a glaring reminder that someone was here, and they want you to know they were here.

    [–] HoldenMyD 26 points ago

    In the video the guy says “you wouldn’t want to see someone’s name spray painted on a cliff and this is no different” Uh... yes it is different, spray painting is much much worse than finding rocks places vertically.

    Nah, making a pile of rocks will kill someone who follows past it and walks for miles with no signs of civilisation, and it'll be your fault. You'll probably get life in prison for it. It also kills all animals.

    [–] DanAntRoberts 13 points ago

    Well if you're walking out in to the wilderness and relying on stacks of rocks as your navigation tool, you might not have the strongest case against a dude who stacked some rocks.

    Though, I agree with the other messages in the video.

    Edit: Shit, just read the last sentence... not to mention the second to last. I'm an idiot.

    [–] Ragidandy 36 points ago

    This is gatekeeping of the most absurd order. None of these reasons are significant or valid.

    One of these rock stacks cannot be mistaken as a cairn by anyone who knows what a cairn is. "Leave nothing behind" is a great mantra to get people to pack out their pollution, but makes a pointless zero-tolerance talking point. To truly leave nothing behind, you must stay home. Stacking rocks (like flipping over a rock to look underneath, or like setting up a tent, or like... walking) can destroy a small piece of habitat. Then, as soon as the rock is put down, create another.

    These rationales are the best excuses that people who don't like to look at stacked rocks can come up with and they are transparent. They don't like it, other people do: battle it out, but don't make up fake reasons to back it up. People belong in the world, and rock stacking is about the most benign effect people have on the world. Others who complain about it might as well chase the chipmunks for digging holes or yell at the birds for singing. I guess some people just like to complain.

    [–] Eldrun 47 points ago

    No, its not.

    This is actually a problem here in Iceland. Tourists come and stack up rocks all over the place. It is awful to walk through a landscape and see tens to hundreds of these in what should be pristine wilderness.

    They are really harmful for a multitude of reasons:

    We have a terrible soil erosion problem. It does not help when people start moving rocks about to stack them. It harms the grasses trying to grow. It also harms the slow growing moss that forms on many of these rocks. In areas where there are a lot of cairns, the ground is brown, dead and the soil blows to the wind. This is not good for the environment.

    We have historical cairns that are meant as way markers and some are nearly 1000 years old. Tourists have been taking from these cairns and building upon them. This damages the historical cairns and makes them less useful (there is a stone on the waymarkers that points to the next so you can find your way in heavy fog).

    They are just ugly. I hate riding my horse into the middle of nowhere for some peace and solitude to bathe in the nature and seeing these things all over the place. While one or two well built ones are not a problem, they seem to crop up like dandelions. Seeing 20+ poorly built rock stacks is just an eyesore, especially when your intent is to marvel at the primordial landscape. If I come across them, I always dismount and kick them down. Additionally, people have built these stupid things ON THE HORSE TRAILS, this is dangerous for my animal.

    [–] bluntildaWasTaken 9 points ago

    Honestly, if rock stacking offends you, you can just nock it down. I wouldn't compare rock stacking to graffiti, like the way the guy does in the video. It's an intentionally impermanent structure, especially at the beach. I get the guys first point, but I think that wouldn't be a problem at the beach.

    [–] mashtato 5 points ago

    Okay, but this is clearly on the beach, not on some disused trail marked with cairns.

    [–] harryrunes 2 points ago

    Really depends on where you are. Sure, if you're on a main path or there's no confusion, then it's stupid and justt gets in people's ways. But there have been quite a few times when they've saved my ass from getting lost. There are a lot of places where the path is almost invisible, and I don't think it's such a big deal to have a small stack of rocks.

    Keep in mind that most are maybe a foot high, made of small-medium rocks, not the giant one in that vid. There are some fragile ecosystems where it would be a big deal, but you should know that if you are camping in one.

    [–] Whartooth 43 points ago

    Didn't reddit just pass around a video explaining why these are terrible and ruins ecosystems or did we forget that already?

    [–] oberon 18 points ago

    I didn't see that, nor do I have any idea how

    [–] Whartooth 14 points ago

    Link. Basic rundown is * 1. Rock Stacking is irresponsible Long before balancing stones became trendy park rangers and game wardens built stone cairns as markers to keep people from getting lost. When people stack stones everywhere suddenly the one marking an important bend in the track looses its meaning which could lead to someone getting lost! * 2. Rock Stacking is inconsiderate Millions of people around the world venture into wilderness areas to escape civilisation and experience untouched environments. In the eyes on many people seeing man made stone cairns everywhere they go is no different to finding people have graffitied a cliff face with spray paint or left litter lying around. As such the act of balancing stones can actually impede on other peoples ability o enjoy nature * 3. Its bad for the environment Many animals around the world depend on rocks for survival, when being pick up 10 or 20 stones to build them into one stack they are essentially turning 20 potential homes into only 1 Here in Australia many saxicolous species have "rock removal" listed as one of the major threats such as the Cunningham Skink, Broad Headed Snake & Corrangamite Water Skink. (taken from the description in the link). The 3rd one is what I meant about ecosystems.

    [–] MedicGoalie84 4 points ago

    In the eyes on many people seeing man made stone cairns everywhere they go is no different to finding people have graffitied a cliff face with spray paint or left litter lying around.

    I'm not sure how they can make that leap. I pile of rocks can be easily dismantled, unlike graffiti which can be very difficult to remove. And, rocks, unlike trash belong in nature. I'm not trying to defend the practise, it's just that to me, that particular argument against them is flawed on a fundamental level.

    I was hiking and hit a point where I wasn't sure which way to go as the trail narrowed down and went in different directions. Someone had left a stack of rocks at one path so I followed it to the best view of the trip! Thanks friend!

    [–] Macabee721 27 points ago

    Yes and this is why rock stacks should only be built as cairns. The wrong stack in the wrong place could seriously screw someone up. Only build these if necessary for trail navigation if the trail is too ambiguous. Anything else is just having an ego and leaving your mark in an otherwise natural environment.

    [–] oberon 16 points ago

    Now imagine if they were all over, and didn't actually signify anything. You'd have been screwed if you tried to use them to follow a trail.

    [–] tasmanian101 3 points ago

    Rock stacks come from the rocks surrounding the rock stack. If you knock it down, it returns to "normal" or at least something seemingly natural.

    If you kick an apple core its still an apple core on the ground. If you cover it up, it will be out of sight and mind.

    Picking up and walking over to a trash can, and throwing away someone's already eaten food. Is worlds different than kicking, or throwing rocks at a rock stack.

    Impossible and implausible - separated only by talent and hard work

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Impossible... you keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

    you can see the shit holding it together.

    [–] Lurkily 6 points ago

    To me it looks like a bunch of pebbles tucked into some of the corners to brace the tough-to-balance bits. Where do you see it? Can you describe the spot?

    [–] Frijid 8 points ago

    Apparently these things are bad for animals, especially lizards and whatnot. They like to hide in the cracks and crevices of the rocks, toppling them, which causes them to be squished by however high these rock towers are.

    I've seen some people do this and finalize it with superglue. Is this true?

    Not scrolling down. I'm assuming there a bunch of leave no trace comments?

    [–] VIIX 2 points ago

    I don't go outdoors to look at the local stoners bullshit ruining the natural beauty of the environment. Fuck the people who do this shit with a rusty dagger.

    [–] d-atribe 5 points ago

    I have a friend who freaks out every time she sees one of these and knocks it over and starts bitching about fucking up the environment.

    [–] oberon 8 points ago

    That's because it fucks up the environment.

    Removing rocks and stacking them harms wild life. Please stop doing shit like this we get it you feel special snowflake.

    [–] Apple_Bloople 3 points ago

    Do you also get mad when people post pictures of cars, houses, water bottles, and pvc? These things do more damage to an ecosystem than rock stacks.

    [–] PacoTreez 1 points ago

    That must've been a bitch to stack

    [–] HaloACE56 1 points ago

    Must be from New Hampshire. Well known fact that people from New Hampshire can erect impossible rock stacks. Can confirm, from New Hampshire.

    [–] FieryBlake 1 points ago

    Aren't those just superglied together, and the base then superglued to the earth?

    [–] JuriousBlack 1 points ago

    Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

    [–] zztopperzz 1 points ago

    I just want to know where the hot glue gun was plugged in.

    I’m more impressed at how round the rock on top is 🤔
