Why is it called “dropping the mic?” Is it because one literally drops the microphone that they are holding? Why do they do that? Doesn’t that damage the microphone? Wouldn’t it be better to just hold the microphone? Is that why people sometimes just pantomime dropping the mic but don’t actually follow through, because they know that it’s potentially causing hundreds of dollars worth of damage? A lot of questions, none of which we will ever be sure about.

What we will always be sure about, though, is this: The Earth isn’t f*cking flat.
