    hey some of these interesting facts are also useful. !!!

    for example sahara and jet airwas can take a cue from american airlines and use this funda to save 40000 $.

    then, people can use the apple funda from now on, to not just keep doctors away but also keep early morning drowsyness away as well.

    plus, you can bet someone a few bucks, to fold a news paper 8 times and make some money this way. same applies with leading a cow upsrairs.

    the venus funda can be used for blind and other dates.

    the marlboro man and founder funda can be used effectively to lure near and dear ones away from smoking.

    if i remember correctly, the paper can be folded in half upto 11 times,
    i think it has to do with the exponential growth, anyway, i'll see if i can google this 11 fold theory, by the way this 7 times thing is really old, even i can fold paper 8 times by using alternate folding pattern..
