B.o.B has long been a flat Earth advocate, but now he wants you to show him the curve.

The rapper has launched a GoFundMe that will raise money to “purchase and launch multiple satellites into space.” B.o.B will also keep fans “updated with step-by-step documentation of the process! Help B.o.B find the curve!”

It’s not clear how B.o.B will launch a satellite into space, but the comments on the GoFundMe are rich: “I would gladly give you all my life savings except I already donated it all to the GoFundMe accounts that: – will help us identify the 2nd JFK shooter in the grassy knoll – will prove the moon landing was staged – will help us capture Bigfoot – will locate where Jimmy Hoffa is actually buried.”

B.o.B, who more recently alerted fans to the weird world of pregnant Elsa videos, started his flat Earth crusade on Twitter last year and quickly drew the attention of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. B.o.B responded with a diss track, of course. And then Tyson responded with his own track. Remember the innocence of January 2016?

Flat-Earth truthers are a dedicated bunch, and have even forbidden memes from entering their orbit. We’ll see if B.o.B reaches his $200,000 goal, but some supporters are pointing out even satellites could be wrong. As one person said, B.o.B might have to actually go to space himself.
