Toilet Paper Folding Record Broken

By on January 18, 2012 in Janitorial, Paper

Maths students at St. Mark’s School in Southborough, Massachusettts, have broken the Paper-folding record. A huge length of toilet Paper – made up of a number of industrial, 1.2 kilometer length rolls –was folded 13 times.

The final folded result was a 1.5-metre wide, 76-centimetre high wad comprising 8192 layers of Paper.

It had long been a part of scientific mythology that you could not fold a piece of Paper more than seven times. This myth was dispelled in 2002 when high street student Britney Gallivan successfully folded a single roll of toilet Paper 12 times.
