Gravity is a bitch.

"Gravity is a bitch."

So is losing the parachute promptly after leaving the launch pad. Not a good sign for how things are going to end.

Ironically killed by the gravity that he would have denied

rxlawdude | 2020年2月23日

Clearly he didn't appreciate the gravity of the situation. (Is Trump going to have someone else to call "Rocket Man?")

No, I'm not making light of this guy's death, but it does prove Darwin was right.

Tesla-David | 2020年2月23日

Yep, Darwin was right! Sad that he did not see the error in his thinking before gravity interceded!

SCCRENDO | 2020年2月23日

It is ironic that he he will end up getting the award from the same Darwin he denies.

It is not flat but it is hard.

rob | 2020年2月23日

That is hilariously sad...

rob | 2020年2月23日

... and I'm still laughing.

Tesla2018 | 2020年2月23日

That guy got flattened when he landed.

Mike83 | 2020年2月23日

His theory proved incorrect.
Similar to other conspiracy nuts who don't believe in the greenhouse effect and climate change caused by fossil fuel burning, the moon landing, and so on. The uneducated seem to have a knack for making really stupid decisions.

I was waiting for a deceptikon to save him at the last second.

Unfortunately, they belong in the same universe as the flat earth.

GHammer | 2020年2月24日

As they say, he was no rocket scientist.

Xerogas | 2020年2月25日

But why a steam-powered rocket? Seems so...antiquated.

Orthopod | 2020年2月25日

Why a removable parachute

rob | 2020年2月25日

Reminded me of Evil Knievel’s jump.

Gravity is just a theory

Xerogas | 2020年2月25日

A lot of flat earthers don’t believe in gravity either

SCCRENDO | 2020年2月25日

I guess he learnt about gravity. But he never got to evaluate the shape of the earth. Perhaps he could see it from heaven.

David N | 2020年2月25日

There are some strange people out there.

TabascoGuy | 2020年2月26日

I'm guessing that at the apex of his flight, one of his last thoughts was "Wow, it isn't flat".

Zeus140 | 2020年2月26日

Sorry he died when he could have taken any commercial airline up to 35,000 feet for under $100. Or sent a camera in an high altitude balloon to 60-80 kfeet. This just shows that what is news is that which is unusual, bizarre, rare, odd, salacious or just plain weird.

derotam | 2020年2月26日

@zeus140, but camera lens manufacturers are in on it by only developing lenses that cause distortion to make it look like the earth is not flat. Come on, catch up on your conspiracy theories!

TabascoGuy | 2020年2月26日

@derotam - my optometrist is in on it too...

Orthopod | 2020年2月26日

Je probably thought plane windows were TVs showing a distopian reality

Orthopod | 2020年2月26日

*he

jimglas | 2020年2月26日

next time try a test flight witout a human in it

andy.connor.e | 2020年2月26日

dont give away the secret jim. flat earthers are doing it right

SCCRENDO | 2020年2月26日

Indeed Jimgals. Let Darwin apply his laws of natural selection

hcwhy | 2020年3月1日

Not only is the earth flat, but reality actually exists only on smartphones.
