    Another version to flat-earth is the much-bigger-earth which would still be a globe on a much larger scale but still be perspectively flat. But doughnuts sound a good idea!

    I think that the key line in that article is:

    Is this all one big joke? I have no idea.
    It's fairly impossible these days to distinguish between when some crazy guy is talking weird and when some sane guy is mocking a crazy guy who's talking weird.

    I tend to think it's a big joke.

    Lots of smart people love to laugh at idiots; then there are really, really smart people who like to laugh at smart people who like to laugh at idiots.

    Isn't that just the earth we have now? It looks flat from down here at most perspectives.

    The big difference would be a flat earther accepting that would believe that everyone would have to live on the top of that globe because otherwise they would fall off.

    Why no bagel? More antisemitism from the nutjobs?
