Sure there’s a world record for everything these days but did you know that there is a world record distance for a paper airplane flight? There is and it is 207 feet and 4 inches set by Stephen Kreiger in 2003. That record won’t last long though as Joe Ayoob just broke it by 19 feet, 6 inches by throwing a paper airplane 226 feet, 10 inches at McClellan AFB.
Impressed? You should be, you try to make a paper airplane that can even go a tenth of that distance and you’ll see how difficult a task this really is.
The record attempt needs to be verified by Guinness but that is just a matter of time. Check out Joe, the paper airplane guy, here with his soon to be world record toss:
Ugh, remember that dunk? See, when there are dunks like the one below during the All-Star game, what is the point of having an NBA slam dunk contest anymore?
That, friends, is a sick dunk. A sicker dunk than I saw during the whole dunk contest at least. Its a shame superstar player like LeBron didn’t participate in the slam dunk contest this year and that instead we were left with B list performers using black lights from your local midnite bowling alley and jumping over people. Not really all that interesting to me. The utter lack of defense played in the All-Star game these days allows for dunks like the above all.the.time. I mean the final score of the All-Star game was 152-149. There was NO defense being played as evidenced by this awesome alley-oop dunk by Kevin Durant and Chris Paul:
Just nasty. How about some more LeBron?
Ok, for real, its far more interesting to watch guys cut lose in the flow of a game rather than have 10 attempts at a lame dunk that once you’ve seen botched three times you could give a rats ass about. Maybe changing the structure of the dunk contest is in order, maybe paying out premiums for actual All-Stars to participate in dunking contests is called for but personally i’d rather just let the contest die the death it has deserved since Brent Barry won it lo these many years ago. Dumping the contest even might make for some more entertaining dunks throughout the actual game since it would be the only place to showcase one’s dunking prowess. The All-Star game itself is one step away from a Harlem Globetrotters game as is, just let them go wild.
There’s not much better than Kenny Powers introducing a new running shoe that actually is doing the running man. At least I don’t think there is. Sure it’s a giant, shameless ad for some K-Swiss shoes, yeah i get that, you know what? I don’t care. Kenny Powers is always funny. FACT. If this is the future of advertising then sign my ass up. Plus it has Patrick Willis tackling a wildebeest. I mean, i can’t make this up, only Kenny Powers can. Oh, and Bruce Lee makes a cameo. Don’t even pretend to be not curious about this video. Watch and enjoy bitches.
