Planet Earth is flat, and there’s nothing I can’t splat

BBC: 'Mad' Mike Hughes dies after crash-landing homemade rocket
A US daredevil pilot has been killed during an attempted launch of a homemade rocket in the Californian desert. 

"Mad" Mike Hughes, 64, crash-landed his steam-powered rocket shortly after take-off near Barstow on Saturday.

Hughes was well-known for his belief that the Earth was flat. He hoped to prove his theory by going to space.

A flat-earther in a homemade, steam-powered rocket. The quotes around the word Mad are clearly surplus to requirements.

Clearly a Darwin Awards hot favourite.
