Don't forget to check out last week's post for even more hilarious things that did not age well.

Purrfectly Timed Hover Cats Pictures

You may not have known this, but yes, cats can fly. No, we're kidding. They can hover though. The hover cat is an elusive creature, one that only appears in the most perfectly timed photo moments

The positions a hover cat may take vary. It may be a flying loaf, it may be a startled leap, it may be flying log, a mid-hunt jump, or a ballerina backflip. What we know for sure is that all of these hover cats are silly and hilarious, and we love them all! Silly cats are the best cats. But these cats - so concentrated on their tasks - are funnier and sillier than most.

These days, we are spending more time in our houses/apartments than ever before (probably). If you've watched every show on Netflix, played every board game you have, and gone through every hobby you have, we have just the activity for you: making paper airplanes! And no, making paper airplanes is not just a fun thing you did in your childhood. It takes expertise and skill to make a decent paper airplane, and there are many different styles depending on which style of flying you're aiming for. We made eight different tutorials for eight styles of paper airplanes, and they're all in this list. So, go get some paper and start folding!

United Airlanes is the Worst Airlane EVER!

In May of 2012, Tumblr user LeonsBuddyDave made a fake Twitter account with the name "United Airlanes" (as opposed to United AirLINES). He posted a few gag tweets and then left the account alone. Recently, he decided to check up on the account just for kicks and saw that quite a few people had tweeted at the parody account believing it was the real thing.

Miniature Horses Are Still Allowed to Be Your Emotional Support Animal

You've probably heard that the rules concerning emotional support animals on airplanes are changing, after a few incidents including a hamster flushed down the toilet, a VIP turkey and a few dog bites. Now, all animals except for dogs, cats and miniature horses are banned from flying. Yep, you heard me right: miniature horses. If you're more interested in taking your doggo on board, check out this travel guide for your fur babies. But if you have equine inclinations, read on.

No More Snakes On A Plane: New Rules For Emotional Support Animals

Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes. While any step towards improving mental health is applauded, there have been many incidents involving emotional support animals on airplanes that really don't belong there. We can't blame these untrained animals for acting the way animals act, but we can question the laws that allow them on board. With new regulations from the US Department of Transport, things are about to change. We discuss these changes below, and whether they are for the better or the worse.

Yves Rossy, aka "Jetman," has been flying around in his jetpack for years, soaring over the Grand Canyon, the English Channel and the Alps among other landmarks.

Rossy became the first man in history to fly with a jet-propelled wing in 2006.

Here he is in his latest video doing a formation flight with Aerobatics Champion Veres Zoltán in Dubai.

Rossy teases some news in the caption saying "the best is yet to come," and at the end of the clip we see… a second jetpack person! Duh… duh… duhhhhhh….

According to a legal complaint filed by Edward Gamson, an American dentist, he and his partner booked a trip to the Spanish city of Granada through British Airways. They were flying out of London, which is a two-hour journey from Granada. Unfortunately, that two-hour flight was actually a nine-hour flight to the Caribbean, because that plane was going to Grenada, 4,000 miles away from their original destination. One letter makes a big difference.

It's a mistake unlikely to happen on any online-booking service, but Gamson had called to make the reservation. "Grenada" and "Granada" is easy to mix up, although he claimed to have told the British Airways booking agent he was going to Spain.

British Airways initially offered him and his travel companion $376 each, plus 50,000 miles, but Gamson told NBC News that the cost of the missed trip, including hotels, trains and tours, cost more than $34,000.

Gamson is now suing the airline. A spokesperson for British Airways said the airline was unable to comment on active litigation.
