riddle me this, riddle me that

Seeing as Tommo let me in on his elite blog writing team I thought I'd open with a little riddle

even though this isn't a riddle at all I liked the title so you can go swivel.

If you have a piece of paper 0.1mm thick and fold it fifty times (remember IF, obviously you can't really, Lauren), how tall would the resulting stack be?

Post your answers in the comments section and don't use a calculator or write it in algebra like a dick - it's fun to guess.

I'll post the answer when I post a full update of the summ
er tomorrow or in a few days or never.

p.s. I like this photo of the owl so I'm posting it.
