Boomershoot is an annual event during which firearms enthusiasts shoot at things which go boom. It’s the brainchild of the devilishly handsome Microsoft millionaire Joe Huffman, who takes it about as seriously as you’d expect from a successful software maven. Maybe more. Saying that, a caption on one his videos indicates a certain joie de vivre: “Who doesn’t like targets that blow up!” Not even a question mark. So, yesterday, in the bleak mid-winter, Huffman and some of his chums did the dirty on a golf ball, launching the dimpled sphere into low earth orbit. Apparently. How great is that?
