Title: Daniel Pratt’s call for help
[Note: I may completely leave off the Foucault Pendulum part. This is meant to be serious and it could be off-point.]
Hello, I’m MCToon.
Today on Flerfers spotlight we feature Daniel Pratt and Foucault’s Pendulum.
Dan has has a lot of drama lately so this video will only very briefly address his flat earth claims. The majority of this video is dedicated to Daniel’s recent drama.
Dan’s attempts to discredit the Foucault Pendulum by calling out an interesting feature of a Foucault Pendulum. It doesn’t rotate on the equator. is based on the fact that the Foucault Pendulum doesn’t rotate on the equator. This is both predicted and confirmed by the globe.
From Brown University
The amount of time that it takes for the pendulum to make one full rotation is 23.93 divided by the sine of the latitude of its location. Since sin(0)=0, at the equator it will not appear to move at all.
That’s all there is to it, there is a lot more science and proof but I will leave that for another video. I mention Dan’s flat earth claim as it illustrates Dan’s inability to understand the nature of our earth. Considering his disproportionately angry response to real science shows the level of delusion he lives in.
However, there are more important things to address in this video.
I would like to specifically address Daniel Pratt’s friends and family. You may not watch his videos, he posts a lot of videos and they are usually quite vulgar so I would not be surprised if family members don’t watch his videos. In his recent videos he has been exhibiting some mental illness symptoms. I want to be careful with what I say so I have referred to expert advice on mental illness. The web site MentalHealthAmerica.net has a page covering the warning signs for mental health issues. Daniel is exhibiting several of the warning signs listed on this page:
His flat earth delusions are an obvious sign of confused thinking, he is unable to articulate logical or scientific reasoning when talking about his flat earth delusions.
Feelings of extreme highs and lows
In recent videos he swings between highs and lows. He will talk calmly for a while then get agitated and starts yelling and swearing followed by strange laughter.
Excessive fears, worries and anxieties
In several videos he claimed he was being threatened in comments and has requested people call the FBI for him. I have watched all the videos and read what comments he hasn’t deleted. I have not seen a single comment that could be construed as a threat.
Strong feelings of anger
Many of his videos he is going on long, angry rants about different people and topics. These are disturbing and extremely insulting. Often including disgusting name calling and unfounded accusations along with veiled racist remarks.
Strange thoughts (delusions)
I’m not going to play nice here about flat earth. It is a delusion. There is no international cabal hiding the true shape of the earth for some nefarious reason. It’s a sphere, that’s all there is to it. As covered previously, his flat earth delusions weigh heavily on him. He seems unable to think rationally about things and is always fixated on his flat earth delusions.
Seeing or hearing things that aren’t there (hallucinations)
In the videos where he is saying he fears for his life it may be that he is imagining things that have not happened. To be honest, this may not be a hallucination. However, his responses are disproportionate to the comments that have been made on his channels.
Growing inability to cope with daily problems and activities
His videos suggest he may be incapable with coping with daily life. We do not see what happens when he’s not on camera, so family and friends, I encourage you to consider if you see him exhibiting an inability to cope with daily problems and activities.
Daniel’s friends and family, please carefully watch Daniel. I would not want to see him cause harm to himself or someone else because of his delusions and mental illness issues. There are too many examples where someone has exhibited symptoms but went unnoticed until too late. Identifying the symptoms is an important part of the solution and critical for everyone’s safety. If you need help, there is a phone number on the web site linked in the description.
He has removed many of his recent videos, particularly some of the ones with the more disturbing mental health issues. However, there are several people that have archived these videos. If a professional wants to see copies of these videos, message me on Twitter @MCToon27 and I will put you in contact with someone that has an archived copy of the videos.
I don’t know if Daniels’s friend and family would normally find this video. If anyone watching this video knows his friends or family, could you please forward it to them. It could make the difference to prevent something bad happening.
I will leave it there for this video. This is a serious topic and I don’t mean to belittle it with too much flat earth commentary.
If you or someone you know is in crisis now, seek help immediately. Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to reach a 24 hour crisis center or dial 911 for immediate assistance.
