Couldn’t resist this either…

Flat-Earther to take off in homemade rocket in bid to discover truth

It’s a steam powered rocket to boot. It will launch the daunty loonie over the Mojave Desert in an effort to prove the earth is flat.

“I don’t believe in science,” Mr Hughes told the Associated Press (AP). “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.”

Well, good luck with that. Science is full of formulas and equations… it’s what scientists distil much of their work into.

And if after this weekend, we have one fewer moron to deal with… hey, who’s complaining?

Between the Creationists and the flat earthers, there are a lot of idiots competing for air time. If they cull themselves, it’s a blessing. Of sorts, not the divine kind.

Looks like he chickened out from becoming the new nominee for the Darwin Awards but blamed the government! Says he’ll do it some day soon, going up there, some day soon!
