don't do this, thanks. not only can 11W get into trouble, but it just isn't the kind of thing that we want on our site in general. how about this: maybe write a blog post where you find hidden gems in the 11W archives that everybody should read that they didn't before? or maybe make a pie. or perhaps write a letter to grandma, i'm sure that she misses you and would love to hear from you. you could also try and beat the world record for longest flight time for a paper airplane. i tried to do that as a kid, it didn't work out so hot. you've got to adjust the wings just so, and i never really had the patience for it. also, you basically need an airplane hangar to get things going, because outside there's wind and that makes it a total crapshoot. anyway the design is decptively simple; you just make what is essentially a square and let er rip. like i said, the bigger problem is balancing and figuring out the proper weight and whatnot. i think the book i read said it took the guy years to perfect his design. how many paper cuts is that? probably like a billion. ugh. i also tried making cardboard models of dinosaur skeletons, that was pretty fun but holy god those kits are expensive. i felt bad making my mom and dad buy them for me, even when i was like 8 (of course, on the other hand, when i was 8, 15 bucks was an insane amount of money to me).


so what i'm saying is, please don't repost material from other websites that is behind a paywall. i may disagree with having to pay for sports information philosophically, but that doesn't mean we should be jerks about it. thanks!
