By now, you’ve probably heard about this possible myth that just begged to be busted: A piece of paper can’t be folded in half more than seven times. The question has weighed so heavily on our minds, in fact, that the guys from *Mythbusters* actually tried it several years ago. They discovered that yes, a paper can be folded 11 times — but only if you start with a *huge* piece of paper and an actual steam roller. But what about an actual sheet of A3 paper? The guy from the Hydraulic Press Channel on YouTube wanted to find out if the old myth still held true with a regular sheet of paper, only one that was folded (and folded, and folded) with a hydraulic press. You can see what happened in the video below: The results of this little experiment may surprise you.
