    Presumably you can photoshop this image before posting it? I am in no way overweight but a sheet of A4 held portrait-wise has an at least 2" gap each side.

    HOWEVER if I hold it landscape-wise, I WIN!!!

    8 inches across the front, 8 across the back and 6 inches to connect the two twice to give 22 inches.

    I can get an A4 sheet to fit round two people's waists (one of them being my own not inconsiderable girth)

    Too easy

    Gosh if one cut up the piece of paper and joied them together it would even fit round my mother's 44" waist!:eek:
    Edit- though thinking about it one would lose something in the cutting. Would have to work out the maximum width of the strips to get the biggest measurement.Now thinkking about doing it as a continuos line- maze like?

    You could hold the paper an arms length in front of you, and that'd work, because of foreshortening and perspective.

    I'm always forgetting too.

    Perhaps @Didactylos4 could relax his 'no likes' request by now!

    I'm suggesting that a sheet of A4 would hide a 22 inch waist.

    Well, I've just tried it, and it does cover (almost) my waist from the front! Yay!

    Uh Oh...problem is...the side view..

    Who has a 22" waist in this day and age to try it? That was small even mid last century and women are generally wider around the waist nowadays.

    I had reason to consult my diary a few days ago and lamented, at the age of 18, that scoffing, caused by going to Uni, had caused my waist to increase from 24" to 26". Shucks.

    Indeed Lanokia.
    @Lara mfl 05
    The alternative solution is to create a mobius strip out of a spiral cut sheet (with a bit of sticky tape to join the ends) and then split it in half along its length.
    You'd be amazed how big it becomes then
