How To Make a Paper Airplane (No, Seriously.)

July 28th, 2007 by Alex

I’m often asked how I find the videos I put up here, so a small peek behind the curtain today: I found this video today because I did what I often do, which is search for a word that has something to do with what I’m thinking about or what the day is. So, for example, the reason I found this video is because I wasn’t able to post yesterday because I was flying back from the West Coast all day, so I searched the word “airplane” and came up with this.

It’s sort of cool, actually; according to the video’s actual page on YouTube, the man making the plane is the father of the cameraman, and has been trying for 30 years to teach his son how to make these, so they decided to go to YouTube and show everyone.
