Man with hydraulic press tests theory that paper can't be folded more than 7 times, with explosive results.
Have you ever heard the myth that you can’t fold paper in half more than seven times? Some dude with a boss accent decided to test the theory and, boy, the results were not pretty.
The creator of the Hydraulic Press Channel recorded himself folding an A3 piece of paper (that means it's about 11 by 16 inches)—a few times with his hands. Then he used a hydraulic press (a contraption that, um, presses stuff) to forcibly fold the paper.
