That police officer is so happy about the poor guy getting stuck. Seems it really made his day.


He will be dining out on that story for a long time, I reckon...

US Navy officials have said it was "absolutely unacceptable" that one of their pilots used a jet's contrail to draw a penis in the sky.
The phallic outline over Okanogan County in the western US state of Washington provoked much mirth online.

The countdown to launch creeps closer and there’s still plenty for self-taught rocket scientist “Mad” Mike Hughes to do: Last-second modifications to his vessel. Pick up his flight suit. Leave enough food for his four cats — just in case anything happens.

Hughes is a 61-year-old limo driver who’s spent the last few years building a steam-powered rocket out of salvage parts in his garage. His project has cost him $20,000, which includes Rust-Oleum paint to fancy it up and a motor home he bought on Craigslist that he converted into a ramp.

His first test of the rocket will also be the launch date — Saturday , when he straps into his homemade contraption and attempts to hurtle over the ghost town of Amboy, California. He will travel about a mile at a speed of roughly 500 mph.


Got to love nutters at times :D

I just have images in my head of it going over the ramp, then nose diving to the ground like the old cartoons etc.

You missed the best bit:
“I don’t believe in science,” said Hughes, whose main sponsor for the rocket is Research Flat Earth. “I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”

I wonder how he's going to achieve orbit round a flat Earth.

Maybe he just wants to get high enough to punch the giant spotlight that is the moon.

Probably expecting to come off the map to then appear on the other side.

I do love the Flat Earth theory; I think you have to be a very special kind of batshit to explain away all of the countless sources of evidence that prove it to be nonsense. Take a look at the Flat Earth Society's FAQ. I'll paraphrase:

What evidence do you have?
THE BOTTOMS OF CLOUDS ARE FLAT.

There are many pictures on the internet and in other media depicting the earth as being round. Why do these not disprove flat earth theory?
LENS DISTORTION. ALL CAMERAS ARE LIARS.

How is there a magnetic field? Magnets can't be unipolar
BAR MAGNETS ARE SLICES OF A RING MAGNET. LIKE A CAKE.

As a passenger on an aircraft, how is it I can see the curvature of the earth?
YOU CAN'T.

Even their own explanation of the day and night circle depicts the sun projecting onto a hemisphere.
