Have You Seen This? The ultimate paper airplane

DUNDER MIFFLIN PAPER COMPANY — When I was in eighth grade we had an assignment in my science class to build a paper airplane.

It was supposed to be a fun assignment where we took time to construct different designs and test them until we found one that would fly the farthest and hang in the air the longest.

But saying I was forgetful in school would be an understatement. It's not that I didn't want to do assignments, I literally just forgot. This was one of those times.

I walked into class that day and everyone stood up at the teacher's signal and headed to the auditorium where we would throw our airplanes from the balcony. Panic set in as I realized I was about to get an F because I made nothing. I frantically looked around and saw an airplane from an earlier period sitting on the ground. Being the ingenious slacker I am, I picked it up, erased the kid's name on it and wrote mine in.

As we threw our planes from the balcony I found, much to my surprise, that the kid from sixth period was pretty bright and managed to build a plane that won for longest hang time and I got the credit for it.

I know this makes me the villain of the story, and that's fine because on the polar opposite end of my paper airplane making skills is Luca Iaconi-Stewart and his incredible paper airplane.

This video is seven minutes, but it is well worth your time. Stewart has spent years crafting this model all from paper. It's mesmerizing to see the model and hear about Stewart's ingenuity and dedication. I hope to be like that someday, but I know it's never going to happen.

Check out the video and get inspired while I go find my eighth-grade science teacher online and apologize.
