Actually you can, somebody worked out a formula and proved it could easily be done if the paper was thin, long and narrow. Pretty sure a kid folded a very long bit of single ply toilet paper more than 7 times.
I theorised when I was in college that there was no upper limit to how many times you can fold. For any given piece of paper that you can fold n times, if you started with a piece that was half as thick and twice as large, you could fold it in half once and end up in the same position, and hence be able to fold n+1 times.
Tried it out with a massive (15ft square) piece of tissue paper and got like 12 times.
I really am a genius.. what I am doing wasting my life in this stupid job? The problem is, most people don’t believe in my genius…
