  1. I hate to be a Negative Nancy right after you posted this but #1 on your list is technically wrong. If you’ve ever watched this great little program on the Discovery Channel called Mythbusters, they proved that you can fold a piece of paper more than 7 times. The only caveat to that is that it needs to be a really large and thin piece of paper and it generally helps to have a steam roller handy. Just some food for thought.

  2. Ah I will contend and stress “folded in half”. Sure you can fold a paper more than 7 times, but not in half. In half is in equal parts. 🙂

    Try it…

  3. I see your contention and raise you one…it would seem that it takes a woman to discount your erroneous ‘shit’. Guess that makes it a ‘mis-shit’.

    The mathematical exact limiting equation for the single direction folding (in half) is:

    L = (pi x t)/6 x (2n + 4)(2n – 1)

    A young woman took the challenge in 2005 and broke it, folding the paper IN HALF, not 8, not 9, 10 or 11 but 12 times! Booya!

    I haven’t gotten past point one…so let me read on!

  4. A good man, you are, Dimitri…reflects your tolerance of other perspectives and highlights your character! Can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve been wrong and had to eat crow…lol!

  5. Well thank you, and just FYI I don’t like the term “tolerance” when it comes to people…its more being of open mind. 🙂

    “An open mind is like an open sail and will always be full of wind.” -Dimitri Snowden

  6. Point noted…context pulled from Websters and used in the broadest of sense…”indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from…one’s own” Imagine if everyone practiced tolerance / open-mindedness!!

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous :)
