A lot of us—most of us?—know that the Earth is round. “Nothin’ On You” rapper B.o.B is not among us.
Two weeks after Tila Tequila started tweeting about how the Earth is flat, B.o.B began doing the same on Sunday night (Jan. 24), taking the tweets into the cold light of day, with facts and figures and theories supporting his claim that NASA has been lying to us all along. Check out some of the highlights below:
A lot of people are turned off by the phrase "flat earth" ... but there's no way u can see all the evidence and not know... grow up— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
The cities in the background are approx. 16miles apart... where is the curve ? please explain this pic.twitter.com/YCJVBdOWX7— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
No matter how high in elevation you are... the horizon is always eye level ... sorry cadets... I didn't wanna believe it either.— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
Time-lapse photos of stars form perfect circles... how is this possible ? pic.twitter.com/d9d1sJja8z— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
how do you explain the horizon always being at eye level ? https://t.co/Kzuc4r77CK— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
And then noted genius Neil deGrasse Tyson messaged B.o.B saying, hey dude, the Earth is super not-flat, calm down:
@bobatl Earth's curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
@bobatl Polaris is gone by 1.5 deg S. Latitude. You’ve never been south of Earth’s Equator, or if so, you've never looked up.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
@bobatl Flat Earth is a problem only when people in charge think that way. No law stops you from regressively basking in it.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
@bobatl Duude — to be clear: Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
Will we ever know the truth? (Not about the Earth, we already know that truth, but about why B.o.B is doing this.) In the meantime, click here to check out B.o.B’s new mixtape, Fire.
