You are probably a globularist. Be proud. That's the disdainful name for people who believe Earth is round, given by those who insist the planet is flat, AKA Flat-Earthers. "Baller" is another derogatory term.  

Though a really smart guy named Aristotle figured out more than 2,000 years ago that Earth is a sphere, Flat-Earthers, including amateur celebrity scientists, will not be persuaded that real planets have curves. Their numbers are not tiny: a 2018 YouGov study found that 2% of Americans believe Earth is flat - and 7% harbor doubts.

Flat-Earthers, ignoring facts about planet Earth, provide plenty of bizarre explanations for their theory: they don't trust NASA, think satellites are a hoax, dismiss gravity, and say Earth is a disc-shaped formation surrounded by a wall of Antarctic ice. Not shy about their beliefs, they've taken to social media to generate memes in support of their claims. Most of these memes are misguided and devoid of scientific validity - they're more amusing than alarming. 

Vote up the memes that make you proud to be a globularist.
