Our SciFi Future.. Better Paper

Or, as the Speculist gents would say… “Better all the Time.”

Imagine if your cheap-ass timberframe house and mine had the drywall pulled off, and sheets of this 214MPa-strong paper conveniently screwed to each of the frames.

Well, for bare starters, you could kiss half your foundation problems goodbye, because paper that strong could withstand the strains that normally put those godawful cracks in the wall.  Put a waterproof layer on it, and you’d get a roof you could walk on without fear of damaging, too.  Wouldn’t that be nice, for those long, slow, gentle spring sunsets.
