The HALO solar powered US missile circling the earth in a perpetual orbit has forced the White House in Washington DC to plead with world's public not to attempt selfies with the missile after the untimely demise of student Martin Megaine.
Just as the missile was passing New York last night, Martin Megaine was seen to be extending his entire torso precariously over a balcony at the top floor of the Plaza Hotel, attempting the selfie of the century. As the missile swept passed, Megaine was caught in the turbulence of the rocket and fell onto the street below. Gob smacked onlookers and party revellers were left speechless as the student fell horribly to his death. A number of friends did manage to get the famous photograph of him waiving on the way down though.
Barack Obama has made a plea to the people of China whose State Circus have been practising doing a giant human pyramid and intend to have their photograph taken as close as possible to the missile' s flight path on Tuesday. President Obama admitted that was a fantastic chance to get the unmissable selfie but stressed the missile was in fact a lethal weapon and capable of killing.
TT Systems, the manufacturer of the out of control solar missile confirmed that the super battery contained in the missile was capable of over 3,000 charges and could be in flight for as many days and nights. TT Systems and the US government are still loathed to have the missile shot down as the production costs so far amount to 40 billion dollars.
