Good morning and happy Wednesday! It’s another sunny day today, but there’s also a chance of showers in the forecast as well.

Fun fact: A high schooler broke the world paper-folding record

In 2002, then-high school student Britney Gallivan of America folded a single piece of paper in half nine, 10, 11 and 12 times, earning her the Guinness World Record for the most times to fold a piece of paper.

Gallivan used tissue paper spanning 4,000 ft. (1,219 m) to break the record. She employed mathematical equations to calculate the length, width and thickness of the paper required, as well as the number of possible folds that could be made.

Gallivan explains her formula in the featured video below, as well as in her book, “How to Fold Paper in Half Twelve Times.”
