JLB1565 | Should Distant Objects Tilt Away on a Ball Earth?

In this video I will demonstrate, using basic trigonometry, how to calculate the amount that objects should ’tilt’ away from an observer at a given distance between object and observer, assuming we live on a giant ball with a radius of 3,959 miles. Using examples, I will present the viewer with a simple question: do you think this amount of tilt would be perceivable to the human eye?

I became motivated to make this video when I noticed that many neo flat earthers on youtube are using the alleged ‘lack of tilt’ as an argument for the flat earth theory.
