    I seen the throw on espn last night as they had it on the top plays. Its was pretty sweet to see a piece of paper fly so far. Considering every one that I have ever made only seems to travel 20 feet at most.

    Re: ex-college QB sets Paper Airplane Distance Record

    I set a paper airplane record in 7th grade during an assembly. It flew from the back of the auditorium all the way down to the bottom, and landing in a teacher's hair. Had to be 100 feet minimum with a light throw. I don't believe I was caught either, but I remember thinking, "holy ****...look at that go...I'm screwed"

    Not much of a spiral on that throw.

    He obviously wasn't standing on a treadmill when he let it fly


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: ex-college QB sets Paper Airplane Distance Record

    It didn't go through a basketball hoop, or into a garbage can, or knock a can off of a teammates head?

    Not impressed.



    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
