On October 3, 2017, the Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded to Rainer Weiss, Barry C. Barish and Kip S. Thorne “for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves”. Flat Earthers globe-wide put their fingers in their ears and chanted over and over, “It’s sound waves forcing themselves through the density of the water that surrounds the firmament, not gravitational waves. Gravity isn’t a thing.” Anti-vaxxers were quick to comfort their flat-earth brethren and say, “It’s okay. The 5G coming off the contrails will interact with the microchips imbedded by their vaccinations to reduce their testosterone levels and turn them gay. Just you wait and see.”
