As someone once said to me about a post I started, what the hell does this have to do with a C3 Corvette tech/performance?

This is more of an Off-Topic observation, but since you brought it up...

ask them how satellites work, if the Earth is flat. And buy them a copy of Kerbal Space Program, which indirectly teaches orbital mechanics.

You can't fix stupid.

How did all of those early explorers sail all around the world without falling off?

There is a netflix special about those people.

I thought it would be good for a laugh, but I think i made it about five minutes and shut it off.

I used many analogies and they didn't buy into it. They don't deny going around the earth but to them 'going around' means the circumference of a flat circle, like a round table top.

Actually, since there is some science type of stuff involved, I'd say they are far more likely to be Trumpies
