CBS News — A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round. The national poll reveals that 18 to 24-year-olds are the largest group in the country who refuse to accept the scientific facts of the world’s shape.
YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” Science teachers across the U.S. will be shaking their heads after learning that nine percent of young adults answered that they have “always believed” the planet was flat.
Another nine percent said of young adults said they thought the planet was spherical but had doubts about it. In a disturbing display of indecision, 16 percent of millennials said they weren’t sure what the shape of the planet was.
When you see how things are going, and the HYSTERIA from the leftists over President Trump doing what ALL of his predecessors have done, don’t you just scratch your head? I mean, how stupid is it to presume that the National Guard (state troops) should not be able to augment federal law enforcement engaged in lawful activity when overwhelmed by a threatened ‘invasion’ of people coming up from Central America?
The C Word
The news feeds have picked up that the State of California is now putting warning labels on all coffee products to the effect that they cause cancer. The speculation is running that coffee only causes cancer in California; that the toxic policies of a racist legislature is causing cancer and they are simply blaming the life blood of the US Navy for the results.
I’m not sure what to recommend to you, but while you’re in California, settle for the non-fat soy latte macchiato with kale and garnished by a goat cheese wedge ($12.95/small cup) instead of your usual cuppa joe. If you want to have a snack, the tofu-and avocado on organically grown wheat toast is highly recommended. For the most part, tap water is undrinkable but there are at least fifty brands of bottled water that run from as little as $1.00 for the Costco brand (re-labled) to as much as 8.95 for the good water imported from a Pacific Island (actually it comes from the San Pedro settling ponds, and it’s strained).
