    After I got the email, I asked my friends and told them to be honest. They all said it was a plane. Please check again

    These things don't fly... they are far too small and made of far too thick of paper to get any kind of aerodynamics... the ratio of weight to lift are too out of whack.

    Fly the plane, Albert! Shoot it on video! I want to see that sucker fly.

  • Hey guys! It doesn't really fly... more like a parabolic fall... But I doubt that my webcam can or camera can pick it up anyways. However bored enough I was able to make a 3mm plane... drollman loved the nsfw show...

    what the heck!? URDB please please please don't let this site go down, with this kinda stuff, lets make it legitimate, I mean , 5 lines is NOT 5MM, I know the staff or whoever are intelligent and determined the plane size based on average paper size or something, but that picture is RIDICULOUS, sorry to rant but this has been happening with lame evidence breaking legitimate records, and THIS one just takes it TOO far, now I dont mind if this post gets deleted, just PLEASE get the message: MORE EVIDENCE

    This submission needs more evidence to be approved. It looks like a torn corner of a tissue, not a paper airplane. There's also no evidence of its precise length.
