The “Flat Earth” idea has been weirdly popular lately. Working from the theories of scientific minds like Tila Tequila and B.o.B., a whole group of people have insisted that our world is as flat as a pancake for the past couple of years.
It’s a silly idea, but it does bring up an interesting question. What if they were right? What if we really did live on a flat planet?
As it turns out, people have thought about that question before. Scientists actually have a pretty good idea of how things would change. If the world was flat, it would be a wildly different place.
