    “For what I’ve known for many years and what I’ve been taught is that the Earth is round, but if you really think about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we move and the fact that — can you really think of us rotating around the sun, and all planets align, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these ‘planets’ and stuff like this.”

    From the looks of those eyebrows, I'd guess the Farmer's Almanac predicts a long hard winter.

    I personally believe that Down Under Australians are unable to see the Earth's shape because, uh, some, uh, people out there in their nation don't have globes and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and The Iraq, everywhere like such as and, I believe that they should, the education over there in Australia should help Austral- or rather should help South Africa and should help The Iraq and the Asian countries have globes, so they will be able to build up their future for children.

    That's no longer where you look for foliage on a woman anymore to predict the length of an upcoming winter...
