Welcome to the flat and hollow Earth

It’s time for a nightly giggle. Check out the best comedy on YouTube, which also serves as a fine working example of Dunning-Kruger in action.


This poor fool, let’s call him Captain Oblivious, has an educational video that proves (in his miniscule mind) that man never went to the moon. You’ve just got to love the way he takes shit so far out of context it could almost make sense, at least after some serious drinking and drugging… Actually nope. Sorry. I never did manage to get that high. Some people just aren’t meant to go full retard.

Also, he believes that the Earth is flat. (And satellites are a hoax!) Since it has been documented that people can believe in conspiracies that contradict one another (called cognitive dissonance and it’s more common than you think and not confined to conspiracy theories; for example addiction is a disease that you treat spiritually; God is an unfalsifiable entity that exists outside of the physical, yet He created it), I was unable to resist commenting, and asked if he believes in both the flat and hollow Earth.
