It’s 2016 and we’re arguing whether the earth is flat

Not only is the earth flat, it’s also tilted at a steep angle, and the only thing that keeps us from sliding off is constant sacrifices of virgins to the volcano gods. Also, the volcano gods want us to make fun of smart people, and to fear learning stuff.

In case you missed it, there’s a war of sorts between rapper B.o.B. and science guy Neil deGrasse Tyson. The rapper thinks the earth is flat and he has “the photos to prove it.” Tyson, as you can imagine, disagrees.

What makes me gobsmacked is that people are actually arguing about this.

    People love debate for its own sake , you should not be surprized. If they can contest how many people can squeeze into a phone box then any crazy idea is up for debate.
