Hilarious as it might be... realize that people like this will be the downfall of our species... and YOU are happy to promote this "crap"

I disagree , Mike didn't think the world was flat he wanted to see it for himself , like many here he didn't automatically believe what he was told.

It was people like him willing to put their life on the line that gave us powered flight , 100 years ago Mike would have been a pioneer now people mock his vision , sad.

Your post is complete crap...

Do you mourn every free climber that falls from a rock? Every wing-suit that becomes a smear on a rock face?

Some people's biggest fear is dying of old age...it's called living on the edge.

The man died doing something he believed in, that is a reason to celebrate.

Peace

Wait, what?

If someone wanted to prove that you can indeed breathe under water and drowned attempting to prove it, would you champion him as a pioneer, or a fool?

Seriously....

No, it's not.

There is innovative thinking, believing in something and striving to achieve it, and then there is abject ignorance....

I'll give you that... but those "pioneers" have already crossed that line..

Theres easier, safer ways to prove to ones self the world isn't flat

I champion him as a man willing to get out there and chase a dream , those who mock him following his death are the fools.

He wasn't chasing a dream... he was trying to fly a steam powered rocket into space... That's not a dream. That's not being self aware.

Might as well have strapped a bunch of fire works to a chair and used a bunch of helium balloons to go see..

probably because he... like the rest of you.... are all morons

its extremely sad to see someone kill themselves for something like this but, unfortunately the Darwin awards should really be a thing... this guy just got first prize

what is actually disgusting, is that there are people who believe the earth is flat so whole heartedly that they are willing to risk their lives to prove it!

Hilarious as it might be... realize that people like this will be the downfall of our species... and YOU are happy to promote this "crap"

you think we live in a F***ing snow globe dude... wake up


It's people like you who are the downfall of our species, to actually celebrate, and laugh, about such a thing.

'He thought Earth was flat. I'm happy he died!'

If you cannot understand why that is not utterly disgusting, it only proves my point.

Disgusting people do not see why it's disgusting to think like that, in other words.


Why don't you find his family, and laugh about it, too?

Would you also celebrate the death of your father, or mother, if they believed the Earth was flat, too?

I'm trying to show you how disgusting you are, to think people should die for a belief.

If your parents believed the same thing, you'd believe they would deserve to die, too?

I will spend a few moments this coming Tuesday evening thinking about him.

You should know what crap is, because you just wrote some...

The people I'm referring to, are NOT celebrating him, for doing what he believed in, or living on the edge, when he died. The people I'm talking about are actually HAPPY he is dead, because they think people who believe the Earth is flat deserve to die. They are celebrating his death, like he was Hitler or something. An evil man that dies, in other words, who deserves to die, and they are celebrating his death, as a good thing.

Get it?

Mike knew he wouldn't get to space but through successive launches he was hoping to get high enough to see the curvature of the Earth , he was self aware and at age 64 he knew he would either die trying or die in bed , he chose to die trying and I salute him for that.

Hitler didn't think Jews should breed, and deserved to die, so you're in good company.

However, everyone celebrated Hitler's death, so let's leave it at that, in your case....

I wonder if they'll still laugh at him, knowing that he died, in an effort to prove the world was round, and NOT flat? It sure explains why he thought rockets would be safe to fly in, anyway.

So, he basically committed suicide. Knew he'd die doing it, did it anyway.

Rather than spend time with his family and those who now mourn his death.. Hmmm..

I'd tell my parents to stop being dick heads and get back home. If dad was adamant that he wanted to sit on a rocket full of hot, steaming water and fly, I'd call a specialist.

I certainly wouldn't want to see him die for an absurd belief.

I mean, lets look at this innovative master of the unknown, teaching us how things work in real life...

Dumb enough to believe the earth is flat yet smart enough to build a rocket.


Maybe he lost purpose in life when realising that the earth is not flat...but something else?

Well, it will certainly please the producers of Faces Of Death.

He died reveling in his passion. He died doing what he apparently loved. Maybe it was the attention, maybe he really believed the earth was flat - none of that really matters other than the fact that he died doing what he had a serious interest in.

A Darwin award to many but I saw him as a dare devil, someone who questioned and challenged, a pioneer in homemade one manned rocket flight.

To those many, I ask.... When was the last time you built your own rocket and shot off into the air at crazy heights - fearless enough to brave the dangers of this endeavor?

Maybe he didn't really believe the earth was flat and was only using the thought to justify what he wanted to accomplish. Either way, doesn't matter. He was a human being who died doing something he loved, something that a vast majority of the planet would be afraid even at the thought...


Rest In Peace, rocket dude!
