What a time to be alive.

  • Rapper B.o.B. has joined Tila Tequila in ranting on Twitter about how the Earth is flat, which sparked a rap battle between him and science celebrity Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

    Every part about that sentence baffles and amazes me.

    Bobby Ray Simmons, best known for the song that goes "Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?,” came out in favor of the conspiracy theory that the Earth is indeed flat and covered by a transparent dome suspended in space, and NASA has known all along and actively prevents people from going to the North Pole or Antarctica because that’s where the edges of the planet are.

    Part of his proof is that the horizon looks flat to the human eye from ground level. Seems legit. Also, for some reason trains would fall off their tracks if the Earth had a curved surface, or something.

  • His tweets drew so much attention that astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Grand High Science Bro of the Internet, had to step in with his own series of tweets.

  • In response to a scientist bringing the science, B.o.B. did what rappers do and rapped about it in a new song called “Flatline,” which says Tyson needs to "loosen his vest" and that he must be getting a big paycheck from NASA. It is amazing and you must listen to it.

  • And then - and then! - Neil deGrasse Tyson’s nephew made his own pro-science rap song in response called “Flat to Fact.”

  • Are B.o.B. and Neil deGrasse Tyson going to meet up in person and duke it out surrounded by their shouting fans like Eminem in "8 Mile"? Is that what happens next?
