The Flat Earth: A Credible Explainer | Vol. 3 / No. 35.1

I just started teaching another summer course, so things got away from me today. So instead of engaging analysis, here’s what amounts to a promo / introduction to something awesome made by someone else.

Have you ever heard of Vsauce? If you haven’t, you’re in for a real trip. Here’s my favourite thing by him (his real name is Michael Stevens): a video explaining the flat earth theory and, well, where the rubber meets the road (or the pseudo- meets the science, anyway). Enjoy it, follow him on twitter, and have a great Monday, everybody (what’s left of it).
