: I saw the string of re's to "flip side." I thought about another orgin of the saying... Back in the day, us foolish people believed that the earth was flat. "Catch you on the flip side," could be saying something along the lines of catching someone on the other side of the earth. What do you think?

The belief in a flat earth disappeared long before modern English. Except perhaps in Kansas, where they still believe in a firmament.
