What Goes Up

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.
