    'rapping happy little lies.'

    You might have heard (but can't believe it hasn't made it to Sports and News), rapper B.o.B. outed himself as a a Flat Earther over the weekend. And, really, his entire Twitter feed is bananas since, as they say:

    Then NdGT replied.

    And a rap battle ensued, really. Plus, this.

    Really, his entire Twitter feed is bananas, as they say: B.o.B (@bobatl) | Twitter

    So, what sez you? Are these Flat Earthers onto something? Have you ever known one?

    That's kind of two-dimensional thinking.

    Is it okay if I find flat earthers and Neil deGrasse Tyson equally annoying?

    Sure, flat earthers are morons. But Neil deGrasse Tyson is a walking "Well Actually..."

    No. It's not OK. NDT is a national treasure.

    Thanks for asking, though.

    Talk show bookers who need to fill a guest spot in a pinch.

    Scientists who now don't have to be bothered with media requests. Neil's got it.

    You know The Good Dinosaur, that cute little kids movie Pixar made? NGT would like us all to know that dinosaurs and people didn't actually live together.

    I didn't mean for this to be a referendum on Neil deGrasse Tyson, however. I was musing.

    Which is the nation that treasures him, Eritrea?

    The rap he had his nephew do was an epic fail. There were NO winners in that whole thing. I don't have a problem with him for being the "Well actually" guy. Being correct about something is a good thing. As is actual knowledge. I have a problem with him acting like an idiot in response to an idiot. He's not a funny guy. He should just stick to knowing a lot about astronomy. That makes you plenty interesting.
