No matter its size or weight, no piece of paper can be folded in half more than seven times!

In the 1940s, the FCC assigned television's Channel 1 to Mobile Services (two-way radios in taxicabs, for instance) but did not re-number the other channel assignments. That's why your TV set has channels 2 and up, but no channel 1.

Not true, the MythBusters folded a sheet of paper something like 11 times. The sheet of paper was super thin and was about the size of a football field..

Grant showed if you fold the paper in the same direction 4 times than 4 times the other way, it is possible to fold the paper 8 times. 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 area-to-thickness ratio (and with help from a steam roller and a forklift), were able to perpendicularly fold the paper 11 times. Other methods of folding a piece of paper (such as with alternating folds) proved able to break the fold threshold of 7 for letter-sized paper, and perpendicular folds of more than 7 are theoretically possible with thinner paper.
It is impossible to fold a standard sheet of paper more than 7 times, though.
