I don't know if this phrase has ever been uttered: But the flat-Earther here might NOT be the craziest person in this story . . .
A 36-year-old guy in New Zealand named Jamie Sutherland recently had dinner with a friend named Louie Lanz. They've known each other since elementary school.
And Louie kept going on about how the Earth isn't round . . . then said he'd bet Jamie TEN GRAND that it was flat. So Jamie took him up on it, because hey, free money.
Except Louie thinks all the proof about Earth being round is part of a massive conspiracy. So there was no way to convince him.
They ran into each other at a gas station later on. And Jamie told Louie he still owed him the $10,000. But Louie refused to pay. So Jamie lost it . . . and threatened to KILL him AND his father with a crossbow if he didn't pay him the money.
Louie called the cops, and they've been dealing with it since February. But on Monday, a judge dismissed all the charges. And no one has to pay the ten grand.
Overall, Louie might still be the crazier one though. Because in court, he claimed the Moon landings were faked, and that Albert Einstein was a plant by the government.
And he also got 80 hours of community service back in 2015 for joking he had a BOMB on an Air New Zealand flight.
