People Reckon ‘The Simulation’ Is Malfunctioning After Seeing Near Perfectly Cut Cloud

People Reckon ‘The Simulation’ Is Malfunctioning After Seeing Near Perfectly Cut Cloud

People have questioned if the simulation is real after a perfect clear-cut square cloud sat in the sky.

Clouds come in all shapes, sizes, colours and movements, however rarely do they ever come in such a perfect shape.

A Twitter user by the name ‘General Glizzy’ posted the photo of the astonishing cloud in Memphis, Tennessee.

They encapsulated the bizarre weather phenomenon with the caption: “Boyyyyyyyyyyy the simulation is f**king up today.”

It left many utterly shocked as one person wrote: “I’m telling you something ain’t right with the sky these days.”

Another said: “This mf caught Superman coming to earth.”

A third person commented: “This is unexplainable.”

While another wrote: “I'm going through the comments looking for the one proving it's fake but not seeing it…”

After witnessing these Memphis skies, I’m starting to feel more and more like Jim Carey out of The Truman Show.

I can just imagine the producers in the control room cussing out an intern that botched the design of the clouds in that day’s episode. Hopefully, we still get renewed for season two.

Thankfully, this has happened before and it's not cause for alarm. In 2014, NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman tweeted a photo of a square cloud he captured from the International Space Station.

Users were also left shook as one person said: “I never thought of square clouds, wow.”

While another said: “The contrast is remarkable.”

Although clouds are arranged due to the winds and moisture in the middle atmosphere, we are rarely shown a perfect structure.

However, many users have begun sharing clouds that look like they’re rolling back, like a perfect ocean wave ready to shred.

These clouds, known as ‘Morning Glory’ clouds, are the result of a configuration of the land and sea on the Cape York Peninsula in Australia, according to Wired.

The peninsula is around 563 km (350 miles) to 96.5 km (60 miles) as it extends between the Gulf of Carpentaria to the west and the Coral Sea to the east.

As trade winds push the sea breeze across the peninsula during the day, it meets the western sea breeze later in the evening, which causes collusion that creates a wave-like cloud formation.

Meteorologist of the University of Munich, Roger Smith, who studies clouds, told the outlet: “Over the years we’ve developed a good understanding of them.

“It’s no longer a mystery, but still very spectacular.”

However, he said that because 'odd clouds' are 'unimportant' to the climate, scientists find it challenging to get funding, so they are often poorly misunderstood.

He said: "It's hard to get funding to study something that's neat looking."
