Why so much supposed backlash? I thought it was hilarious. I suppose only those who were publicly fooled would be outraged surely? Nobody has a sense of humour anymore.

Very funny, we need more scientist like this guy.

Looking forward to reading more bizarre flat earth conspiracy theories as result of this :) ;)

Now you see! NASA is a conspiracy! This is proof the earth is flat like a chorizo slice!


FYI, you are 1 day late, but yes, this is a truly funny story :-)


What a horrible narration.

No offense to the lowest denominator pleasing narrator of course

Right on time for me!

I’m hungry now

Disinformation always causes problems. Is the humor value from this well balanced against all the angst?

In my country, Angst is the name of a sausage manufacturer.

I think it's pretty hilarious so I vote yes
