It’s crazy that somebody got so tired of writing on concrete that they created something flimsy and thin instead, and determined it a better thing to use. But I am pretty glad they did. Paper is an amazing thing. Sometimes, I don’t even think of the stuff I’m using. I write on paper every day. And we have created machines that allow us to print on it.
When did it start becoming so versatile?
And then, on top of normal stuff, people made even more of a flimsy paper, and it is used for newspaper. Or, go in the opposite direction and you get a little more durable stuff, called cardstock.
It’s just so weird.. That our world has advanced (first of all from no writing skills) from writing on tablets made from concrete (at least that’s what I imagine), to thin little slices of.. Tree.
