They don't you because of an Internet YouTube Twitter and all that stuff you thinkers just. People were believing that we just we know of course. It is out there and it seems like. You hear about it more. In the last couple years. You've got to do is serve today. Certain demographics. And by the way to do about it doesn't summit some adults witches. According stats kind of represented the US population. 84% just 84%. I've always believed the world is round that's all the populist. Says that 60%. Or they can maybe. You know wasn't. Or that in what do you eighteen to 24 year old 66%. Think it's not around. Miles. While now and a professor at the allow. The peaks at 94%. If your 55 Borough. It changes guided the route the age groups. Two thirds of young adults in America except that the planet isn't a blades you Droid is so well that. SP HE RO ID. I'm guest on late. OB LET yeah I think it means is like kind of compressed slightly flattened a little flattened in a doughnut T yeah but not. Not my last Bali shag any kind of mash stat ID be ticked us fear and mashed it down. Look at elegant little bit here it is at that service of revolution obtained by rotating it. Let's just look at the never mind does this huge bonus and aloe blade is the year and the question how securities is. If there's an old Blake steroids. Could be I guess maybe it's terribly flurry of trying to put the mega selling ads dumped in his article. He is. Yeah 5% US adults have always thought the world was round. But it come worst skeptical lately. 9% 8224. Believe that it. Wasn't always around. Two thirds of young adults and Greg except that the planet visas. I guess it is oblique. Steroids. But still only 66%. It's so that's where they're raising is getting weird maybe they full well am I talking about what I really. You believe it's in a blade steroid now or is it already in Albany I think is an old blades steroids. And armory in his right. Right do you guys think some. Are you did you Google is learning about it there's no blades which would mean Bennett is still troubling that means it's 33% don't believe it it. It's not I don't think it's like a perfectly round sir we're really yet the earth isn't permanently rounds and ilsley steroids makes a little Morse that's still 33 or whatever it is don't. Don't believe it it is the that is caught round. The rise in the AFLAC birthers. Is because of you to FaceBook and Twitter but it. Picked up a lot of steam whenever the a popular look at what happened remember back last August we that's terrific that's being double lot esteem because people were trying to use the eclipse as proof that the earth was flat. And so there was like the strong push from. That's right to try and and talked about how there is because this morning to yeah yeah view because there is done. So we are notably steroids or steroid Nardelli. Anyway 33% don't buy it. I tell you know I don't tell people that because Matt might be wrong in you know then you look stupid mean you have to take you heard from Matt and MA should look even more stupid right in to stick with the did a sick with a headline. This 66% of young adults say there's this round you just go of that yes you did anything refused conversation. You throw that people. Omniscient and also Matt Harris is generally confused. This part is yes. 2% of all those surveyed always believe the world is flat 4%. Eighteen point 4%. Or like an out. Understand and understand. 16% eighteen to 24 girls they don't. In the blue when they do this in Germany where every day that I don't want any women as a congregating together they you only get the less flat earth beliefs you have. Most. To sensitize opposite for like the theory of revolution. Were older people are less likely to accepted. Not science but in this science it's the younger people or review which is. It's weird to me that there's that many people don't think the earth is any kind around. Or like I'd say no place here he'd. And the more religious. The people who said that they thought it was a platters. They also called themselves very. Not religious at all or not very religious there were less likely to believe. It was flat but. There is also. Celebs. That have come out and said. Like Sherri shepherd which usually ahead of the game. It is from Asia and on the view when she said that I was so done. But you wanna know I'm really trying not to judge is she's she's really she made a really hard and then and and since then there's those things that. I guess. I have to midday when someone tells me that they think the earth is flat I kind of and that there are a little bit ignorant immense that's I I need to open my mind because they might be thinking that I missed it. Or maybe they're thinking they don't mean enslavement as an old Lloyd spirit of it. And I mean. Yeah. So I think there you know my first thought doesn't go to anger goes to craze. My first one goes after it first goes to crazy. Then more than all right you're just trying to be contrary to everyone else but man what it's like some of these people believe it. And then there's probably people answering the survey of it be contrary and then there's people who are listening to these celebrities who are tweeting out amount. The earth being flat and they will believe anything a celebrity says right yes. So am I don't I'm I think I'm to teach my kids it's no surprise in store for I'd start wrap an old Blake spear and not a it's anyway there's morning's. There's a lot of things that are easy to deal but winning money which Charlotte's best. Is the easiest we want JT ready for summer with some easy my. Every week day from 7 AM to 7 PM I think it is to win a thousand dollars cash every hour be listening at the bottom of the hour for the keyword and texted him immediately to 7881.

Aside just in Scotland have just created a contact lens. That shoots laser beams from your ride that is fantastic at any what do cage and so all creepy looking. It sounds creepy looking at it is every evil character in every scifi movie you've ever seen. Laser reads from. Or like undressed and isn't that what the next move in oh yeah. I was getting guys on. In Superman I had yeah that Superman and really guys here wrote Nolte you doesn't laser beams. He has extradition means cut through our season and cut through like metal bars and stuff and his brother isn't gonna be that intense won't be able to.

And that's something you can use her like gaining the bar coded degree she Seward sob that could be able to vaporize your enemies but he against. In it without having to carry your phone and not go to the check out like the in the Amazon grocery stores right now it is walked out wit that's one less thing you have to do is beating your card you look at it yeah. Unit to bring your phone and now now let's wants them to such a baby step it's all about input little laser beam eyes for about it and eventually. And it is it is to the widespread illegal seasonal wall or something public cut something like you cutting it on a metal. That metal cot would cut food fight crime but again you guys that I migrants is able to fight crime and it's also able to commit crime. When they got stopped trying to power comes to worry about you.
