This Guy On YouTube Thinks He's Proven The Earth Is Flat

Oooooh boy.

A YouTuber by the name of D Marble has tried to prove the earth is flat using scientific instruments including a store bought spirit level, a selfie stick and pure self-belief.

In an attempt described as "a perfect combination of brilliant and stupid", Mr (Professor) Marble's theory was that in order to compensate for the curvature of the earth, a plane would have to have its nose pointed downwards at some point during the flight so that it wouldn't just... shoot off into space?

So using one of the smallest spirit level's we've ever seen, he recorded a 23-minute timelapse showing that the bubble stayed in the centre of the level, thus proving his theory - soz science, D Marble FTW!

Except no.

If you have hours of your life you'd never like back, Google "Flat Earthers".  And if you want to watch the video, here it is:
