  • I'm really curious to know what percentage of this group really, truly believes what they claim to believe, and what percentage actually just gets off on trolling outsiders and, more likely, each other. I'd bet a pretty significant that the first number is very, very low, and the second number is very, very high. In fact, the entire organization may consist of one guy who's actually a True Believer, and everybody else who just likes to keep him going.

  • This reminds me of going on a ghost tour a while back.  A buddy and I brought q-beams and were telling people to watch the edge of the shadows for specters.  It got better as the night went on because every other stop was a haunted bar.  If you weren't seeing ghosts by the end of the night then you didn't drink enough.  In any case, the Flat Earth shiat *could* be fun if they couple it with lots of drinking.

    Sure, they show up for a laugh and to be "ironic." But they leave as true believers.

    /allow me to give you a stress test and discuss some literature...
  • Here's what I don't get:  why the conspiracy to make people think the Earth is round?  What in the world flat disk do the "conspirators" have to gain?
  • I'm no conspiracy theorist, but you can't argue with science.

    If you don't believe the Earth is flat, you can easily prove it to yourself by going on your roof with a small telescope and looking at Chicago, which can be seen from anywhere on the disc.

    I remember seeing some clips from the British Flat Earth Society or some such when I was a teenager, and it seemed pretty much all tongue-in-cheek.

    Britain really does produce the best eccentrics.

    The fact that you don't even see what the problem might be illustrates how complete the control is that "They" have over your thoughts.  Wake up, sheeple.  Or since I'm addressing just one of you, I guess, shperson?

    Doesn't this sort of prove that it's all being played for laughs?

    Britain:  Tea, footy, dry humour, eccentrics.  QED.
  • It's one of those conventions that really runs up bar bills, I'm guessing.

    Of course, in my town, that one state meeting of divorce lawyers actually drained downtown of all its liquor. One for the record books.
  • Every one of these people should be locked up.

    If people think the earth is round, they won't watch where they walk and often fall over the edge, which counts as human sacrifice to the demons living on the underside of the disk, which satisfies them and prevents them from invading the rightside-up.

  • They're just looking at it from a different perspective.
  • "To me, this is Satan's greatest lie."

    Ok, I think we're done here.
  • So he earth is shaped like a coin.  Wouldn't our orbit around the sun be much more chaotic?  Can they point anything else that is naturally occurring that wants to form hat shape?
  • The entire universe is flat, we just perceive it as 3d, sort of like a hologram. Or some crap like that, there was a link to it on fark awhile ago.
  • Why do people still think the earth is flat?

    / better question: Why does the BBC waste resources to report on these f*ckwits?

  • A full quarter of the country is too dumb to function. It's not limited to the US, either. Somewhere between 20 and 30 percent of the population of the planet is stupid and has always been stupid and will always be stupid. Facebook and Twitter have just made their stupidity more visible.
