What do you know about paper? We have been using it since forever but do we know what wonders paper have done to our lives. We’re not going to talk about history here (not exactly) but some interesting things about paper that I know and you should know it too.
How old paper is?
Do you know how many years it has been since we are using paper? Well it is 2000 years old and in fact it’s older than Christianity.
Folding a paper
There’s a natural limit to fold a paper and we know that it can be fold for seven times. However, in 2002 Britney Gallivant folded it for half eleven times but after 10 years i.e. in 2012 some high school students made it to 13 folds.
Who was the inventor of first paper?
We kind of know that it’s very old but most people don’t know where it was invented? Well surprisingly it was invented in china by CaiLun and they did not share it from the rest of the world which is not very surprising.
Is paper made from woods only?
Paper is a nature extracted product but it’s not true that they are made from woods only. Papers are also made from scraps of cloth and cotton fibre too. The notes are made from cotton fibre and are considered to be more durable.
At some point of our lives we all have played with paper planes and even have challenged each other whose plane would fly more. But there is a Guinness world record champion you can probably never defeat.
Joe Ayoob threw his plane and made a record of travelling 69.1m.
These were some FYI stuff and now you know a little more and if you already knew all of them that’s even better.
