Glad you didn’t say blue marble, because, as you can see in the video, it’s flat as a pancake.

Exactly, then I would be technically wrong in reference to the video but technically right in reference to the general shape and relative size of the planet. Since technically right is the best kind of right, we could say that technically wrong is the worst kind of wrong as well as other pedantic things.
