The Frogman’s New Thing 2/23/12
Today I learned that the Earth is round.
I promise that is not as idiotic as it sounds. A lot of people probably think, “Welllll… it’s not perfectly round. It’s bumpy!” There are mountains and valleys and giant trenches in the oceans. And if you get a globe you can even feel the bumpiness over the mountains.
The Earth is not bumpy. The Earth is smooth like the Fonz. If you shrunk the Earth down to the size of a billiard ball, it would be the smoothest billiard ball in existence. The imperfections are microscopic in the grand scheme. Those bumps on your globe are all a pack of lies!
