    HA!

    Myth: A piece of paper cannot be folded in perpendicular halves more than seven times, regardless of its size.
    busted
    It was impossible to fold a piece of letter-sized (8.5" x 11", 216 mm x 279 mm) 20 lb (37 g/m2) copy paper with perpendicular folds more than seven times. The thickness of the paper exponentially grew with each successive fold, and after the seventh fold the paper was just too thick to fold without breaking. The MythBusters then laid out a football field-sized sheet of interconnected paper (170 ft x 220 ft, 51.8 m x 67.1 m), and due to the reduction of its thickness-to-area ratio, were able to perpendicularly fold the paper 11 times.
