Re: Folding paper to the moon

It has been suggested that a single sheet of paper if folded 50 times 
would reach the moon. As a lifelong printer, I can assure you this is 
not possible. In fact no single sheet of paper, regardless of size or 
weight (thickness), can be folded in half more than 7 times. Try it and 
see for yourself!
