Curious why you'd act like you didn't understand his point?

Of course I do, but there are much better analogies to make. Curious huh?

Ground control hasn't heard from non major Don in a bit, wondering if he crashed landed somewhere?

All you skeptics said they couldn't do it are now eating crow. 1st attempt and they almost made it to orbit and he walked away. Proved the earth is flat. Notice the rocket didn't roll away as should happen if the earth is round.

Hahahaha. Looks like his fabricating skills and engineering ability both need work.

Default Mad Mike update

https://www.facebook.com/madmikehughes

For those that don't use Facebook :

Launch update / yesterday after a phone conversation with the manager of commercial space travel in Washington I sent an email explaining the proposed launch for super bowl Sunday. The 40 foot ramp for the vertical launch that will be bolted to the existing ramp was built
Hopefully all the bumps in the road are behind me
madmikeflatearth.com
The new website has been transferred to GoDaddy and will be up by Monday

Sounds like the Superbowl has some competition

Default Self-taught rocket scientist 'Mad' Mike Hughes blasts off into California sky

'I'm tired of people saying I chickened out and didn't build a rocket... I manned up and did it'

He finally went up just like the self-taught rocket scientist always pledged he would.
He came back down in one piece, too a little dinged up and his steam-powered vessel a little cracked up.
Still, mission accomplished for a guy more daredevil than engineer, who drew more comparisons to the cartoon character Wile E. Coyote from his critics than he did to iconic stunt man Evel Knievel.
"Mad" Mike Hughes, the rocket man who believes the Earth is flat, propelled himself about 570 metres into the air Saturday before a hard landing in the Mojave Desert. He told The Associated Press that outside of an aching back he's fine after the launch near Amboy, California.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/rocket-...rnia-1.4592170

Sometime after 3 p.m. PT, and without a countdown, Hughes' rocket soared into the sky.
Hughes reached a speed that Stakes estimated to be around 350 mph before pulling his parachute. Hughes was dropping too fast, though, and he had to deploy a second one. He landed with a thud and the rocket's nose broke in two places like it was designed to do.
"This thing wants to kill you 10 different ways," said Hughes, who had an altimeter in his cockpit to measure his altitude. "This thing will kill you in a heartbeat.
"Am I glad I did it? Yeah. I guess. I'll feel it in the morning. I won't be able to get out of bed. At least I can go home and have dinner and see my cats tonight."

And I'm sure he'll claim that the earth is flat because he went almost 600m in the air and didn't see a curvature LOL
