Man Tests Theory That A Piece Of Paper Cannot Be Folded More Than Seven Times


(PCM) A man has decided to experiment with the theory that a piece of paper cannot be folded more than seven times and even managed to incorporate the use of a hydraulic press. Using an A3 piece of regular paper, which is about 11 by 16 inches, the man folded the paper over a few times by hand and then made use of the hydraulic press in an attempt to fold it additional times.

Watching the paper literally shatter on the seventh fold was hilarious and certainly proves the theory that even by using machinery and piece of standard paper can definitely not be folded more than seven times. A while back the folks behind Mythbusters took on this theory as well and they were able to fold an incredibly large sheet of paper eleven time, however it was a much larger sheet of paper and they incorporated the use of a steam roller.
