  • Guys, this is a conspiracy to prevent the discovery of flat earth!! Plus, it was destined to happen. Hear me out. He wanted to hit the karman line, which is 62 miles in altitude, and he was 64 years old. 64-62=2. And he died by hitting the ground 2 fast. Whoa, right?

  • When I was like four or five, possibly six, I had this idea that I could sneak out of the house with my bedsheet, climb to the top of a palm tree somehow and parachute down with the sheet. Obviously I chickened out from ever doing it, but I just bring that up to point out that kid me had the same energy as this guy with his "homemade steam-powered rocket propelling him to the edge of space" fantasy. Minus the suicide balls I guess. Anyway rest in peace. He grifted the flat earth community into funding his hobby, and he died doing what he loved... So there's that.
