Paper is so useful. You can write on it, you can wrap things in it, you can make dolls and origami out of it, and you can wad it up and spit it at your fellow humans — OK, maybe not after the age of 10, but you get the drift.
Paper has had a permanent function in most cultures since its invention in China somewhere between 140 B.C. and 105 A.D. We use paper for everything, even in this high-tech age.
