    You need to grow up and concentrate on your own issues rather than picking on others.

    Bullying. Not cool.

    I hope you are on the receiving end just once. You might change your tune.

    In the meantime, grow up and stop being a jerk.

    Maybe we should all go write reviews of the OPs app.

    Good idea. This sounds like a fine time for the karma carousel to start spinning.

    Yeah, the "weird kids obsessed with rockets" usually end up building the real ones that take people to space...I'd be careful who you pick on kid.

    Are you suggesting we help you troll this guys web site because he's awkward? That's cold man.

    He has something he likes and theres likely a future for him to use that knowledge to get a job he loves. No reason to hate.

    I mean, we are on an Apple Inc. forum, it doesn't exactly scream "cool", but we all enjoy ourself and a lot of us have knowledge which helps us with our jobs, school or other parts of our lives.

    I wish this guy the best!(I'm sure theres a large rocket community out there that would find his videos and blog of value)

    Exactly.

    You know what happened to the "weird kid" from my high school? The one who was obsessed with computers, and kind of socially inept, and a bookworm?

    He works for Microsoft in Seattle and makes more in one year than I will in ten.

    OP, I hope you end up flipping that kid's burgers. Good for him for actually having the balls to do what he is doing.

    I believe a good semi-threadjack is in order to turn this positive.

    Speaking of rockets, this topic kind of reminded me of October Sky, the Jake Gyllenhaal movie from several years back. Based off a true story, and Homer Hickam turned out just dandy. Anyone else love that movie as much as I do? It doesn't hurt that the soundtrack is beautiful too!

    Me too. I watched this film just the other day on Netflix. Great film. Love the dark West Virginia backdrop.

    Chris Cooper is so good as the father, too.

    Just shows you what can happen to a kid with a dream :)

    The way people have responded to this post confirms that this is a community worth being a part of.

    I agree, Draythor. I agree!

    I'm going to subscribe this guy's channel. Give him some more reasons to keep at it!

    Seconded. Im betting this guy ends up working at NASA/Boeing some other totally-awesome-aerospace-company and sends his stuff into space - and probably makes millions doing it. (And this community seriously is one heckva nice place.. OP - If I could be bothered your app would be getting some nice negative feedback. But I can't. So it won't. Yet.).

    Good for this kid. He seems like a nice person. He's found something he loves to do, so he's put himself out there and asked for help and suggestions. Leave him alone, he's done nothing to you.

    I'm subscribing to his channel.

    Weird Kid Obsessed with Rockets becomes NASA Engineer

    I was that kid in the mid '60s. But I built my own rockets and mixed my own fuel. When I read Homer Hickam's book I was surprised that I had used all of the same fuels that he did - except for using moonshine as a binder for zinc dust and sulfur. I grew up to be a teacher.

    If I thought the OP read, I would suggest the book in the link below.

    Rocket Boys
