The coolest (and most realistic) paper airplane ever (pictures)

Completed cabin

Since 2008, Luca Iaconi-Stewart has been working on a scale-model of a Boeing 777-300ER. Made out of manila folders. Though he took two years off during that time to go to college, the now 22-year-old has otherwise spent almost all his time on the project, which is finally nearing completion.

Measuring in at 48-inches by 48-inches by 12-inches, this would never be mistaken for a real plane. But take one look at the paper 777 and you can't help but be blown away by his craftsmanship.

Wow, I'm not sure what to marvel at more... the craftsmanship, or the patience.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I know what you mean, it takes tons of both. Look at those engine's and tires!
