Reality Show: Flat Earthers Hunt for the Edge of the World

It’s time to turn off Naked Dating, Love Island and Pointless because we’ve got a TV show pitch for you.

Flat earthers. They’re the gift that keep on giving, aren’t they? Without a shadow of a doubt, save for creationists, the thickest people on our (spherical) planet.

But as a whole, as a collective force, they aren’t much else. For example, flat earthers don’t kill people who disagree with them, which makes the movement void of serious debate.

You’d never see a thread on Reddit where people discuss a reality show where Nazis swap wives with Jews. But you may already have seen one about flat earthers travelling to the edge of the world.

Conveniently enough, they don’t believe it’s possible to reach the absolute tip of the planet as it’s no-zoned by a giant ‘ice wall’.

And they also thought the recent solar eclipse in the States proved them right.

brssnj45 explained:

I recently met a flat earther. So the idea is that there’s a gap in the ring you can pass through, but it’s being guarded by the military at the South pole, and absolutely no one is allowed past that point.

Thus what we think is our planet is more like Attack on Titan, and this giant ring is a wall we don’t know about and can’t go past.

Others were less… polite.

I got banned from their sub for laughing at them. Their mentality seems to be that even if they were taken to space and shown the Earth as the sphere it is they still wouldn’t believe it so they ‘challenge’ the ideas of so called intellectuals.

Personally if you’re going to deny science in such a stupid f*cking way and spout conspiracy theories about NASA you should be banned from using anything made possible by science. Have these morons living in huts with zero access to technology.

Instead of sending flat earthers to the ‘edge of earth’, someone suggested putting them on a space shuttle and sending them into space ‘… but after they see the earth, the ship should just keep going further and further and further and further.’ Or to put them on a boat on a mission to ‘find the edge of the world.’

You’d probably just need to pay for a boat and camera rental.

The initial idea for finding the edge of the world was pitched on Wednesday by a redditor who is hopefully going places in the entertainment world.

There should be a reality show where flat-earthers have to find the edge of the world. from Showerthoughts

After 24 hours the idea already had around 65.7k upvotes – just think of the viewer numbers HBO.

To be fair, some flat-earthers do not believe a flat earth means it has an edge. Some argue there’s an infinite earth that carries on in all directions (like standing on a sphere, perhaps).

Others think that it is impossible to reach ‘the edge’ because of an ice wall – like Game of Thrones.

Surely though, the TV show could be about their taking camera operators to the ice wall.

Conveniently, much of flat-earth theory argues the ice wall is impassable, and that anyone who claims to have been were ‘manipulated‘ by Nasa.

Although the idea was in Shower Thoughts, that is probably where most TV executives have been trawling for new programmes.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has
    83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!
