Next time you swat someone with a paper.

Swedish Researchers Make Paper That's Stronger Than Cast Iron.

The new technology, developed by researchers at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, takes ordinary cellulose and puts it through special processing. The end result is a paper, made out of normal wood pulp that has an incredible tensile strength of 1.6 times that of iron.
