Default Anyone's relative??????

Anyone's relative?

"Mike Hughes, who has recently come to believe the earth is flat, plans to launch a self-made, self-manned rocket 1,800 feet into the Mojave desert sky on Saturday as part of a quest to photograph the Earth.

The rocket will travel 500 miles per hour up about a mile above the California desert. Hughes previously traveled a quarter of a mile over Winkelman, Arizona, in a self-made rocket in 2014, but suffered injuries from the flight that had him using a walker for two weeks"

Hmmmm... walker for two weeks for a quarter of a mile..... maybe a wheel chair for a few years for a mile?

Since when does 1,800 feet equal a mile?

It's hard to judge distances from your mother's basement.

You don't have to go that high to prove the world is flat. All you got to is go offshore and watch the high rise condos disappear.

What about "rocket launch" and "flat Earth" makes any sense whatsoever?

This guy is a publicity hound.

...and he is on his way for Thanksgiving dinner..... We get to talk about "why so many colors for cars today?" or "It must be a pain to cut all that grass, why not just let the weeds take over?"

Launch was cancelled. Blamed it on the Fed's.

They apparently denied is launch permission. And mechanical issues with his motor home launcher.

The Fed's have a part in this flat earth conspiracy.

The world is flat. When folks leave town, they never come back.
Drops off sharp at the edge of town.

The way you have to look at this is: the earth really IS flat, it only appears roundish due to a defect in our eyes that curves things. It is the exact same problem with camera lenses. Look at your eyeball - see the curve! Look at lenses - yep, curve! That's the problem.

There is no sense even thinking about fixing it, that curve thing is important to our eyes so we can use bifocal vision to judge distance. Any time the distance goes beyond what your eyes (or a camera/telescope lens) can focus, the image seems to curve. Can't help it - pure optical illusion.

The fakers and schemers who faked the moon landings and all that silliness will be exposed when Area 51 is finally opened and we get to see the ladders those aliens used to get here. And I can't wait until the real facts come out and everybody finds out it was the communists who assassinated Abe Lincoln. Poor John Booth was innocent.

Very helpful. Thanks for that.
