Man builds rocket so he can fly up in it and prove the earth is flat, because ALL OF THE EARTH PHOTOS EVER PUBLISHED WERE FAKE. He drives for a living. He's ALLOWED OUTSIDE BY HIMSELF. o_O Linkage

If it takes a couple story high tank of fuel to get a shuttle into space, what on earth makes him think he can make it a mile on steam?!

You gotta laugh, there's nothing else for it.

One of my old school friends is currently banging on about this shit in my Facebook feed.

... And is on the Moron-side of the argument.

The fuck is wrong with these people!?!?!?

Once sent FB friend request to an old mate... then read his feed, going on about aeroplane contrails and mind control and all that sort of shite. Cancelled the request.

Couldn't be arsed to start explaining the basic physics about what happens when hot air from a jet engine meets the sub-zero air outside it.

I cannot understand his logic at all, I mean, the flat earthers are mental... But his logic in it is, well...

He's going to sit inside a home made missile, light the fuse and fly to 1580 feet, then try and get higher and higher there after to prove the earth is flat...

1) You dont need to go one inch off the ground to prove the earth is a sphere, you just need two sticks shoved in the ground in two locations, a sunny day and a tape measure.

Yeah, I know the ship on the sea horizon one, but with the one above, you get a definite measurement, which is always better IMO

2) If he needs to go high, he should climb a mountain next to the sea... Mount Waddington in the US is a good spot, 13185 feet (2.5 miles)

And this is what does it for me...

3) And if them two are no good... Why doesnt he hire a plane or get a plane ticket and look out of the window? They can go 7 miles up in the bloody sky!!!

And if thats not good enough... Well, I can only presume one thing... The man has a bit of an ego, but never made anything of himself, and has decided, that, the only way to get attention is to do oddball shite like this... And this flat earth bollocks is the only way he can get it funded.... Through the stupidity of others.

Yeah I've been in a plane at 37,000 feet (7 miles or thereabouts) at sunrise. You can easily see the earth is not flat.

But going on an aeroplane doesn't get you noticed by the media, nor does it make you a hero among fuckwits.

Wasn't there some US rapper using crowdfunding to do this as well?? They're fucking bonkers. All of 'em.
