I come back to this flat earth topic in my thoughts, because the flat earthers do go to a lot of trouble to make their explanations for his shit make sense. But also because I have a friend, a young woman working at the supermarket, maybe 26 or so. She just had a baby and came back from a long leave but that is beside the point. Anyway one of the things her and I first discussed was about this question, and although she isn't excessively religious she thinks the earth is flat! I haven't argued the point with her, I barely see her, just whenever I come across her in the store but she is pretty level headed, just a typical American worker.
Kinda scares me.
