"In the Flat-Earth model, the South Pole does not exist at all and Antarctica is instead a gigantic ice-wall extending the circumference of Earth holding in the oceans like a giant bowl, or a “world cup.” As strange as this concept may sound at first, it is a fact that if you set a bearing due South from anywhere on Earth, inevitably at or before 78 degrees Southern latitude, you will find yourself face-to-face with an enormous ice-wall towering 100-200 feet in the air extending to the East and West the entire circumference of the world!" --from the Flat Earth Society website
I've been doing a lot of reading about Arctic and Antarctic exploration lately, so this was amusing to stumble upon. Perhaps I'll add a flat-earther to my work in progress novel. I already have a (spoiler alert!) hollow-earth theorist in there.
