    Muhammad is not necessarily the most popular first name, but it may be the most frequent one ... at least if you total the many different spellings - Mohamed, Mohammed, Muhammad, etc., etc.

    Also, this kind of statistics usually ignores anything Chinese. Don't forget that easily 25% of the earth's population is Chinese - and I doubt many of them are called Muhammad.

    The thing with paper folding is intriguing. And it gets worse if the size of the paper is not too big - I tried a 4" square piece, and had to stop after 6 folds - even with fairly thin paper. But it certainly creates a neat projectile - where's my rubber band?
