    I like how he shows all his tricks. Most people who have climbed to the top of their creative field try to hide everything that they have learned but he just up and shows you how he made the furthest flying paper airplane.

    Well like Magicians hone their skills with yrs of practice,we call them tricks coz we can't explain or replicate them. What he does with Airplanes is nothing short of Magic!
