quote [ People at one time did not have the privilege of seeing a famous rapper debate a famous astrophysicist about whether the earth was flat. We are deprived no more.
Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., a Grammy-nominated rapper-singer better known as B.o.B, released a “diss track” on Monday aimed at the noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson after the two had argued on Twitter about the shape of the planet. ]
Well, at least there isn't a risk to public health and the long term viability of human civilization like there is with the anti-vaxers or climate change deniers. Still, the fucking shape of the planet should be completely unambiguous. And for the life of me I can't even imagine what possible benefit there could even be to a global conspiracy to foist a round Earth model.
