We poll people on whether they think the Earth is Flat or a Globe. We usually wait for them to approach us, but sometimes we ask them out loud if they are looking at our signs for a while. People walk past us coming to and from the park and museum. It leads to many fun interactions. Kids love to put down their answer. Some people laugh. Some people are disgusted at the mere idea. We have many great short conversations and about once an hour, we have a really long, great discussion over wide ranging topics.
We are located at the corner of N. Harwood Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway between the:

The cops have been friendly.
We have a vendor buddy (recently converted to Flat Earth by his brother) near us selling Italian Ice.
Street preachers and other groups are sometimes there.
We have been going on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. In the summer, the park gets busier later in the day. The museum closes at 5pm.
We park in the Trammell Crow Center (https://goo.gl/maps/NoVhP7zS6Z6B1Zt97) at this entrance: https://goo.gl/maps/Y5a5Jz9GM4q1GDXV6 They charge $5 per day on weekends and after hours. When we leave after 4pm, the attendant is gone and the day is free. It is 1 block walk to our spot.
