I lived in Indiana for a short time and it sure looked flat to me. But I think Kansas takes the cake for flat. Ever drive through Kansas?

Yes, it was the most boring drive I've ever taken.

That Flat Earther Finally Took Off in His DIY Rocket to Prove We're All Idiots
"Am I glad I did it? Yeah. I guess," he told AP. "I’ll feel it in the morning. I won’t be able to get out of bed. At least I can go home and have dinner and see my cats tonight."

Most flat earthers consider themselves very religious
While an overwhelming majority of Americans (84%) believe that the Earth is round, at least 5% of the public say they used to believe that but now have their doubts.

Flat earthers find traction in their beliefs among a younger generation of Americans. Young millennials, ages 18 to 24, are likelier than any other age group to say they believe the Earth is flat (4%).

There's a March for Science next week in my town. I want to stand on the sidelines with this on just to get a rise out of them.

Gotta march for something, I suppose.

Just remember, the conspiracy about the earth's so-called roundness is just the tip of the iceberg:

I want someone to make a movie, a la Inception, where the end sequence is a surreal reveal to the main protagonist that the earth is indeed flat and all the conspiracy theorist were spot on.
