Have You Seen This? World record for most paper airplanes thrown into watermelons in 1 minute


May 17, 2018

WEIRD CITY — I'm not very good at paper airplanes.

I think there was briefly a time as a kid when I knew how to make one that could fly a few feet if the conditions were just right. But since I don't regularly participate in paper airplane contests, I have forgotten all that knowledge. Now when I try to make a paper airplane, I'm better off just wadding the paper into a ball because, that way, it will at least go more than a few inches when I throw it.

Needless to say, I will never be able to participate in something as cool as this. The video comes from Guinness World Records and shows a true paper airplane champion doing something you've probably never even thought of before: throwing paper airplanes so hard that they stick into watermelons.

But not only is he throwing the paper airplanes into watermelons — which I'm sure is a difficult enough task on its own — but he's throwing as many as possible in under one minute, and breaking a world record while he's at it.

I have a lot of questions about this video, but I also think it's pretty amazing. As you'll see when you watch, paper airplane champion Junguk Lee from South Korea broke the world record by throwing 12 paper airplanes into watermelons in under 60 seconds. This is impressive because I can't even begin to imagine how you fold a flimsy piece of paper into an airplane sharp enough to puncture a watermelon. Doing so definitely requires more skill and talent than I have.

So, even though I'm still not exactly sure why this activity is a thing, I'm glad it is because I really enjoyed watching the video, and I think you will too. And congrats to Junguk Lee on that well-deserved world record.
