I hope it’s televised. I haven’t seen a good daredevil stunt like this since Evel Knevel tried to jump the Grand Canyon.

RE: Flat Earth
He's only going up 1,800 ft? Why doesn't he just go up in an airplane? Oh, I know why? Because he's an idiot.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Flat Earth
I've always thought "flat-earthers" was like a joke/troll. There can't actually be people who actually believe this...right?

Oh yeah. I joined the International Flat Earth Society in the early '80s. And the National Frisbee Club and about a dozen other odd things I found in the People's Almanac.

RE: Flat Earth
I think this might take this year's Darwin Award. Does he realize it'd be much safer if he went by balloon?

Ignorance is not to be ignored.
