For a long time it was believed that it was impossible to fold a piece of paper in half more than seven times. People would use different sizes and thickness of paper, but to no avail. However, Britney Gallivan solved the paper folding problem and she currently holds the world record for paper folding with an astonishing 12 folds in half.
