Oh for the love of all things flat. A 61-year-old man built himself a steam-powered rocket so he could propel himself into the air to prove the Earth is flat. I know, I am still shaking my head too. Looking like Wile E. Coyote, mad Mike launched himself at about 350mph into the air to 1,875 feet before landing really, really hard in the Mojave Desert. Fortunately, he did have a parachute and a backup chute so despite the thud landing he only suffered minor injuries. Mike said ‘My story really is incredible,’ ‘It’s got a bunch of storylines – the garage-built thing. I’m an older guy. It’s out in the middle of nowhere, plus the Flat Earth. The problem is it brings out all the nuts also, people questioning everything. It’s the downside of all this.’
Blahahahah it brings out all the nut? Really?
PSST Mike still believes the world is flat.
An Aussie tradie scored one for the team when he accidentally dug through the Pacific internet cable causing widespread outages in New Zealand, Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa. Whoopsie. Vocus internet provider was down and out for 10 hours. The tradie was digging a bore when he severed ties with New Zealand.
Oh no, what could possibly go wrong? Queensland is about to introduce 3D crosswalks in an attempt to stop motorists plowing through pedestrians. Like that is a thing! OK, to slow them down at least. The crosswalks will give the impression that people are walking on blocks suspended in the air. Way to mess with motorist’s heads. Anywho, good luck with that.
When you have been terrorised by a deadly Eastern brown snake for 6 months but can’t find his hide out, what do you do? Well in Oz you get yourself a jackhammer and you jackhammer the crap out of the surrounding paths looking for its bunker…or alterantively just pack up and leave. The deadly repitilewas eventually found after the family crushed their concrete slabs around the house. Once found a snake catcher released the angry beast in nearby bushes. OK loons, you know what that means! Sleep with one eye open family, that snake is going to be right back and more pissed than ever. Good luck with that.
There is a reason why you rotate food on shelves. A man bought a box of Quaker Granola cereal from a Walmart. No biggie …except for the friggin expiry date… Feb 22, 1997. Oh lord, the box had been sitting on the shelf for 21 years. The guy claims he ate the entire box despite it not tasting so good. Golly.
PSST What that box must have seen in Walmart!
Apparently Amelia Earhart has been found…well sort of. A US scientist is 99% certain that the bones found on Howland Island in the 1940s were that of the lost aviator. Problem is, the bones have been lost. But never let that get in the way of a good story. The scientist has the original bone measurements (pre lost) and from those measurements he has estimated the size of Amelia’s bones against photographs … and they apparently match. Not very convincing if you ask me. The theory is Amelia crashed on the island and lived as a castaway before succumbing to the elements.
PSST You might want to keep looking…just saying.
