"Lol, Mythbusters disproved the paper one. They just got a HUGE piece of paper and managed to fold it either 8 or 9 times without the help of anything but themselves. Then they used a steamroller to fold it like 4 more times hahaha."

ya but its not proportional to an 8.5x11 peice of paper

"Britney Gallivan proved it wrong by folding a piece of thing gold leaf more than 7 times with the use of tweezers."

Nice use of your time /sarcasm, but gold leaf isn't paper.

"Seven hours of folding later, they had [the toilet paper] folded into 12 folds."

Once again, not paper. And I believe the original myth was an 8x11 sheet of paper.
