Apparently paper pots have been around for quite a while. I seem to remember it from my visit to Taiwan during my Cornell years. Not to be dorky, but as soon as I saw it I was thinking: hmm...how do they calculate the rate of water absorption into the paper and water evaporation from the flame so that the paper doesn't burn :P

When I said middle school I meant junior high, so it was my 7th-9th grade, which was in Taiwan. I didn't come to the US until the middle of my 11th grade.
