Don’t believe the hype though; see for yourself:

This weekend, spend a few minutes working your way through the 35 steps involved in folding the world’s most perfect paper airplane:
Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can then move on to making an alternative T-tail design, making it legal to fly in the world record paper airplane competition, making a Guinness World Records compliant tail, and more.
It’s definitely not the most advanced project, but sometimes it’s fun just to unplug from the rest of the world for a little bit and focus on the simple things in life.
