What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

I’m guessing they mean 6’ long. They specifically mention in the article that if he stands on his hind legs he can look through the door peephole.

My worry would be for the dog’s health. Large dogs have shorter life spans and more health problems overall. Hips and back are a particular concern. But he does look pretty cool.


#243

Yeah, I showed my wife those photos last night and said to her at the time “I’d imagine he will be quite short-lived at that size.” I love that brindled coat, though.

He said: 'At nine months there simply isn’t another dog 180lbs and 31.5 inches to withers anywhere else in the world, she is an anomaly."

So not quite 3 feet to the top of the back. 6 feet has to be length.

Pray for a strong tailwind. :)

If a Piper Cherokee is going 470 knots over the ground at 37,000 feet, you can pretty much bet there’s a hurricane behind it.


#248

It’s not a Piper. It’s an A3330 that somehow got mislabeled.


#249

Yes, I got that.

I appreciate you posting this because I know just about nothing about planes and how mistakes could be labeling problems so I was like “Oh no that poor man is committing suicide D:”

“Mad” Mike Hughes, the rocket man who believes the Earth is flat, propelled himself about 1,875 feet into the air Saturday before a hard landing in the Mojave Desert.
The 61-year-old limo driver converted a mobile home into a ramp and modified it to launch from a vertical angle so he wouldn’t fall back to the ground on public land. For months he’s been working on overhauling his rocket in his garage.

So, he went slightly higher than the world trade center?


#253

His rocket is powered by steam. Kind of appropriate for a flat-earther.


#254

He made it almost half a mile, but you need to go 7 miles up to see the curvature of the earth and prove it isn’t flat. So he’s got a bit to go.


#255

It isn’t the going up he really needs more work on.


#256

“My story really is incredible,” Hughes said. “It’s got a bunch of story lines — the garage-built thing. I’m an older guy. It’s out in the middle of nowhere, plus the Flat Earth. The problem is it brings out all the nuts also, people questioning everything. It’s the downside of all this.

This is my caring face. :|

“Owls are so awesome!”
“How about we have one bring the ring to us at our wedding?”
“I love it!”


#258

This is where Elon Musk got his inspiration from.

Owl: Fuck you and your Harry Potter bullshit.

That just looks like the owl was trained to perch on an outstretched arm and the guy didn’t realize he was doing the equivalent of ‘hey, HEY, land here!’
