    My headline pretty much says it all. This story smells like death:

    "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

    I've heard about this. A guy whose education is insufficient to make the plainly obvious observations that prove the spheroid shape of the Earth is going to light of a rocket intended for orbit. This should work well.

    He's no rocket-scientist. No seriously he said so himself.

    seems a few years ago he had an issue with the parachute deployment and shredding.
