Video Fridays: Paper Airplane World Record

On the surface, this week’s Video Fridays installment might seem like much ado about nothing or a blatant filler entry while I’m away in Colorado.

And yet, I found something about this record-breaking paper airplane flight surprisingly captivating and impressive for the following reasons:

  • That people have put so much effort into a seemingly yet far-from trivial pursuit
  • That there’s actually a building big enough to contain this event…barely
  • That the technology and design that went into this flight must have been extensive
  • That they thought about using a football quarterback to throw the plane
  • That the former record was beaten by nearly 20 feet!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
