They must be using round earth technology.

It's hard to believe there are really people that stupid out there.  But, alas.

Really? It's proven everyday.

Unfortunately, that is all too true. And I am not really sure it is pure stupidity or a combination of a lack of attention coupled with mental laziness. At any rate, it really can be amazing how foolish people can act. For most of my life, I attributed most bad behavior to malice but I finally realized that if just 'dumb' could result in the same behavior, it was much more probably that than malice.

But I still think this guy is just doing what he is doing for publicity, attention and very probably, in some way or another, money.

Well maybe not so fox like, couldn't find a place to pay for the pay per view and the launch is tomorrow?
I expect it to get canceled just like his jump over Palo Duro Canyon was in 2016.

Wow, they still make those things! I had one of those when I was a child. (1950s) I recall mine was a two stage model made of white plastic with a transparent red tip (EZ boyz). I don't recall the two stage action working very well. Sometimes it fell to the ground and the hard impact would set the second stage off and it would spin around in the grass.
 ....ahhh yes those were the days my friends...polio; bomb shelters; footwear abuse at the UN; sputnik; cigarette smoke everywhere; separate water fountains; TV dinners; and...and...Cheez Whiz!
Just to get back on topic sorta, there where no pictures (fake or otherwise) from space showing a round earth. Only world globes made by those Replogle conspirators.

I loved those water rockets when I was a kid and I had a bunch of them! Thus my comment about getting them stuck on the garage roof.

Well, he had to cancel his launch.  Seems he can't keep his motorhome running.  Sort of calls into question his mechanical abilities, ya think?

A man who believes Earth is flat, and was ready to launch himself from a rocket in California on Saturday afternoon to prove it, has canceled his plans. At least for now.

Not having the required federal permits plus mechanical problems with his "motorhome/rocket launcher" forced self-taught rocket scientist "Mad" Mike Hughes to put his experiment on hold.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "told me they would not allow me to do the event ... at least not at that location," Hughes said in a YouTube announcement, amid international attention over his plans to launch into the 'atmosflat.'

"It's been very disappointing," he said.


How can he be a rocket scientist if he doesn't believe in science?

The whole testing thing is ridiculous because.....



As the proud owner of a 5 month old kitten, I can vouch for the accuracy of that poster. This is when she is NOT in her 'clear the desk' or 'destroy that roll of paper towels' mode:

When our cats were young they would jump on the bathroom vanity counter ... and turn on the water  :o

So I switched the faucet handles from:


to:


... and that leverage reduction worked!  8)

Wow ... cat thread ... well, that's about as good as a flat earth thread.
