Mr. Science

My boyfriend is telling me that the Earth is flat, but my friends are telling me that he’s lying. I think the Earth is round, but I’m not sure. Is the Earth round or flat?

Mr. Science Answer: Both groups are correct. The earth is both round and flat. Have a look. This is a photo from NASA that my Uncle Claude “borrowed” when he was a janitor for the CIA.

New Zealanders have a theory that if the world were flat cats would knock everything off it. Those people are correct. If you go to New Zealand there’s stuff on it — trees, buildings, chewing gum. That is because it’s in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s the top half off the hemisphere. It’s round.

But in the northern hemisphere there are very few cats. Just young ones with sharp claws. The rest have fallen off the edge.

Best to you and your boyfriend.

Jaron (Mr. Science) Summers

You can buy one of my novels here. If you

can't afford it, write me a funny

note and I'll send you a PDF

of the novel.

Rather than beg one million people to donate a dollar each, I'd like one billionaire (or two or even three) to simply give me a million buck$. You know who you are.
