Stan Bowes, from Diggle, has uncovered some interesting and entertaining facts – you just couldn’t make them up.
IT IS a well-known fact that it is impossible to fold a piece of paper more than seven times – And like most well known facts, it isn’t true.
A group of students from St. Mark’s School, in Southborough, Massachusetts, recently set a new record of 13 folds.
This was achieved using a batch of industrial toilet rolls, taped together to a total length of ¾ of a mile (1.2 kms).
However, the seven-fold ‘myth’ probably still holds true for a normal proportion single piece of paper, no matter what its size.
