Charles K. Johnson
|A dirty dozen gems about|
|Not just a river in Egypt|
Charles K. Johnson was (now, don't laugh because he took it seriously) president of the International Flat Earth Society. This organisation seriously contends that the earth is a flat disk centred at the North Pole and surrounded by an ice wall at the South Pole. Under Charlie's enthusiastic period as President, membership of the IFES grew from "a handful" to around three thousand which only goes to show that there are people out there who will believe anything.
