Episode #14 – The Flat Earth Militant Occupiers

Occupiers_edited-2

Of course they’re not! They are “anti-government protestors”, members of the Oregon “militia” who were simply “occupying” federal land (the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge) that once belonged to the Paiute Indian Tribe before they were forced to leave and live on 10 acres of land near the city dump.  The three inquiring minds of ASP come to grips with this deplorable issue but find some light at the end of the wormhole with a dose of Neil deGrasse Tyson’s eloquent, mic-dropping scientific prose on the non-flat curvature of the earth.  Inspired by the gravity of Tyson’s hypnotic words we end with a game of “Would you rather live on an infinitely flat or boringly round earth?”
