    It looks real enough but I'm saying fake for the simple fact that it hasn't been done before. You can do some pretty sophisticated CGI at home now. The haiti UFO video looked real as shit too (til you figure out that all the trees are the same model)...

    He meant you're an idiot, so calling others idiots is similar to a retard calling another penny-eater a waterhead. Not surprised you chose to either completely miss his point, or try to make it seem like he wasn't calling you a fucking dunce.

    There's a mildly interesting parallel here though. You think the above video is fake, and made by idiots. Kind of like how we all feel with the shit videos you post.

    Wow, I've never wanted to wish AIDS on a person more in my life. Seriously, I can't quite pinpoint what it is, but I just wish you would get AIDS.

    So you're part of the elite trying to reduce the world's population?

    If so, in this one instance I'm with you.

    Haha like I'm going to debate "who is an idiot" with you idiots! The comments and discussion of this video are much more fun intelligent and engaging on YouTube and gizmodo, most likely cuz everyone there doesn't have a hard-on for me

    While this wing thing is most likely bullshit.

    The video is much more amusing that the shit you and your gay pop pop put out on You Tube.

    if it is a fake, then the entire set up of a website, series of videos, appearances foreign tv, and geek conventions makes it one of the most elaborate I've ever seen.

    If it's real it is only about 100 years too late. We have machines that do the flapping now, they are called engines.

    They also weigh too much including whatever fuel is necessary for them to operate. . .

    You're right, someone should call the airplane factory and share this info with them.
