Too funny....

 

My first thought upon reading this story this a.m. was, "he stayed one day too long at Woodstock."

 

But alas, we've gotten where we are today because of dreamers...

 

"Good luck and Godspeed.."

Californian to Launch Homemade Rocket to Prove Earth Flat

Perhaps I should have posted this under Funny Stories...

 

A California man is about to launch himself in his homemade rocket to prove the earth is flat

 

Denver Post story: http://www.denverpost.com/2017/11/21/flat-earth-community-space-program/

 

A snippet:

 

Seeking to prove that a conspiracy of astronauts fabricated the shape of the Earth, a California man intends to launch himself 1,800 feet high on Saturday in a rocket he built from scrap metal.

Assuming the 500-mph, mile-long flight through the Mojave Desert does not kill him, Mike Hughes told the Associated Press, his journey into the atmosflat will mark the first phase of his ambitious flat-Earth space program.

 

Hughes’s ultimate goal is a subsequent launch that puts him miles above the Earth, where the 61-year-old limousine driver hopes to photograph proof of the disc we all live on.

 

“It’ll shut the door on this ball earth,” Hughes said in a fundraising interview with a flat-Earth group for Saturday’s flight, which ranged across theories that NASA is controlled by round-Earth Freemasons, and Elon Musk makes fake rockets from blimps.

In this Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017 photograph, the homemade, steam-powered rocket built by daredevil/limosuine drive Mad Mike Hughes is shown on the property the man leases in Apple Valley, Cal. Hughes plans to launch the rocket Saturday over the ghost town of Amboy, Ca., at a speed of roughly 500 miles-per-hour.
