If you had to guess, which side of a the earth is flat vs. no, it’s round argument would you pick to be the one that got so worked up over the issue that it was moved to chuck a propane tank into a campfire?
If you chose the dunderhead who still thinks here in the 21st century that it’s flat, congratulations, you and I think alike. And guess what. We’re both wrong.
Police said a 56-year-old Brockville man was at a campsite with his son and his son’s girlfriend when the woman began insisting that the Earth is flat.
The older man insisted the Earth is round.
It’s not clear if anyone at the campfire put forth the argument that the Earth’s equatorial bulge makes it not perfectly round, but instead a shape known as an oblate spheroid.
Nevertheless, police said the man became so enraged he began throwing objects into the campfire, including a propane cylinder.
Brockville firefighters were called to put out the campfire.
By the time police arrived, the man had left the area. Assuming he hasn’t walked off the edge and now finds himself floating eternally in a void of nothingness or somesuch, he will most likely be charged with mischief when located.
