Proving flat Earth at pattern altitude

Postby Gabriel » Mon Mar 26, 2018 9:40 pm

Crazy man builds home rocket and launches himself to pattern altitude to prove that the Earth is flat.
He achieves the first but not the second.

Is this revenge for that time I posted a not-so-great link?

Must I consult www.internet.com for additional detail and context?

Are you sure of this, or should we wait for the final report?

Finally, OMG, did he died?

Google: "Mike Hughes" (for general info on the guy who rocketed himself -he didn't died- ) and/or "An amateur rocket-maker finally launched himself off Earth. Now to prove it’s flat" (for an article on The Washington Post). Short summary: What Gabie said.

He almost did died but didn't not died.

Side comment: A Piper Cub can take you much higher for much less, much more safely and with much greater re-usability. (And you will still not be able to prove or disprove that the Earth is a globe or a pizza). Now, stay on Earth, look at the space, and you can (as a certain kind of ape did thousands of years ago). Or, conversely, stay in space and look at the Earth. It also works since about 50 years ago (or it would if it wasn't all faker than the 9/11 terrorist attack lie that everybody believes because the overdose of chemtrails that cloud one's critical thinking unless you take the appropriate homeopathic medicine and wear a tinfoil hat)

Maybe he didn't prove the world flat, but it sure was hard.

Agricultural factoid:

If one levels a rice field to 'near-perfect' flat levelness using laser-guided dirt moving equipment, the center of the field may have minor drying issues as it is about 1/2" "lower" (based on a 160 acre field) than the field edges...That 1/2" goes away if you can actually make the field truly match the earth's domed surface/near-perfect distance from the center, using a scientifically engineered algorithm and GPS-RTK guidance to adjust the dirt bucket*....

Nanoprobe applications are optional, but will increase rice yields and mind-control efficacy of the population.

*To date, land levelers are not doing a formal adjustment for the "dome", More likely: 1) The field is set to a shallow grade to facilitate drainage and 2) relatively small ditches (~4 to 6") are made to collect and guide extra water away.

We don't grow that hippie food in Norway, so no problem.
