say it louder for the people in the back

You guys, this weekend I watched a documentary on Netflix called Behind the Curve. It’s about flat Earthers. It blew my mind just how committed some people are to the idea that the Earth...is flat..................

Anyway, I’m still thinking about it. Because...what.

Moving on to things that didn’t quite blow my mind but are nonetheless worth a look.
