DAREDEVIL 'MAD' MIKE HUGHES
DEAD AT 64 ...
Fatal Rocket Crash Landing (VIDEO)


This guy may be familiar to some as the homebuilt rocket enthusiast who was out to prove once and for all that the Earth is indeed FLAT.

I. don't think that test was planned to get him there. I think this was another test of the technology that he had hoped would one day be able to do so.

What da f is wrong with people? I’ve always said Trumpers vs. Flat Earthers would be a pretty entertaining royal rumble. At the end of the video the dude literally became a flat Earther.

At the moment of launch, it is clear there was a malfunction that deployed his landing parachute prematurely. You can see it in the video coming out at launch and fluttering away.

If he saw that can you imagine what his last minutes were too him? He had to feel helpless and knew it was the end.

That wretched Coyote needs a good lawyer to make a claim against ACME Company which blew him up at least 26 times.
