Who cares?

I'm not interested in whether the Earth is round or flat! What I want to know is, what are we doing about the entrance to the Hollow Earth in Uruguay? And the Nazi flying saucers going in and out of it EVERY SINGLE DAMN DAY?

Geez, people need to get their priorities straight.

"Creamy penguin filling??!?!! LOL. That is one of my new sayings. Thanks Mighty!!"

Sorry, the credit for that phrase goes to OcterDoctopus.

I keep hearing the call of Kthulhu on my answering machine. Is he trying to sell me something?

These flat earth people are farking idiots. Yup.
Theres this religion that thinks these ghosts invented
the internet, but just because they believe it doesnt
make it true! This is no different. Its a farking
undisputable FACT that urth is round. These flat earth
bastards should go back to their farking afghanistan

Genesis 4:22

and god so loved the earth that he fashioned it after his favorite polyhedron, the cube. but god knew that that alone was not enough; god knew that in addition to being snazzy looking, the earth must also be tasty. so god then added a creamy, penguin filling, making the earth the tastiest square planet this side of the kupier belt.

Alfred Russell Wallace proved this way back when by setting up two objects of equal height miles and miles from each other at the same elevation. A telescope peering straight parallel with the ground should look dead on the remote object, but instead was looking over the top of it. With the proper caution and measurements this could easily be done, but of course just by the observations on that page it should be pretty clear.
