Flat Earthers

You know who is stupid? People who constantly make fun of the 10 flat earthers that actually exist. I mean, I think it is one of those things where people know so little science and have so little knowledge that when they actually come across something that they have over some extremely fringe group, they literally never shut the fuck up about it.

I see like 100 memes a day about this shit. I see 100 comments a day about this shit. 100 jokes a day made. Yes, we're very proud of you all. You understand the earth is not flat. Congratulations.

You are looking way too hard for your fetish. Maybe you should consider a browser start page other than google search results for flat earth jokes....

Tough to know how many people believe the earth is flat but it's more than 10.

 

Millenials will believe a lot of what they read on their smartphones.

 

It's hard to pin down precisely how many flat-Earthers there are. The first flat-Earth conference in the United States, held last year, drew a crowd of 500, according to its organizers. The new survey, conducted by YouGov, drew respondents from its online panel of 1.8 million residents of the United States. The survey questioned 8,215 adults, and the results were then weighted to represent the demographic makeup of the U.S. population.

Overall, the results suggest that 84 percent of Americans believe the world is round. Five percent said they always believed the world to be round but have recently become skeptical. Two percent said the world is flat. Another 2 percent said they always thought the world was flat but have recently become skeptical. And 7 percent just weren't sure.

"Young millennials," or those ages 18 to 24, were the most likely to exhibit round-Earth skepticism, with only 66 percent firm in their belief in a spherical world. For comparison, 94 percent of those 55 and older think the world is round, as do 85 percent of 45- to 54-year-olds, 82 percent of 35- to 44-year-olds and 76 percent of 25- to 34-year-olds.

There weren't many differences in flat-Earth beliefs across regions of the country or between genders or people of different political persuasions. People who reported incomes of less than $40,000 a year were slightly less likely to say the world was round than people who made higher incomes (79 percent versus 87 percent in the $40,000 to $80,000 income bracket, and 92 percent in the $80,000 and up income bracket).

Whether or not they're stupid I think it's a good question to ask - what makes you know it's a sphere?

Waaaaaahahahahahahaha, "mount spiked"

 

There are siomilar graphs displaying "knowledge" on the x axis and "self perception of knowledge" on the y axis. Literally all Cesar Millan like dog trainers and their loudmouth followers are somewhere on mount spiked, lol.
