The chain was started on December 2nd, 2004 out of boredom! After about a week of learning and mastering the skill, if you wana call it, of folding the papers perfectly the chain soon grew in length. It is made of FULL wrappers and ONLY STARBURST WRAPPERS.
As of June 15, 2009 the chain is 411.6 feet long. It has 21,000 wrappers. Each 500 wrapper section is 9.8 feet long.
