Worldwide Run On Toilet Tissue Amid The Coronavirus!

So what say you?

How about a short joke?

Once in my younger days a girl I knew was hit on by a guy in a bar. So this guy approaches her and says " boy would I like to get into your pants". "No thanks" she said, "one asshole down there is enough"!

So, from one a hole to another. This ones for you:

Toilet paper. That's right. Its all over the media. I am not trying to make jest of the situation but it is what it is. Last week I went to Sam's and bought [3] bundles at 45 rolls each. Since my family is probably just like yours and so full of sheet we now have 135 rolls on hand and in reserve to our normal supply.

Why Is There A Worldwide Run On Toilet Tissue Amid The Coronavirus?

So? I got the stuff at a bargain price of $0.58 per roll. We use the thin Scott's stuff. It environmental friendly as it dissolves quick and uses less lumber. Septic Tanks love it. Also the shelf life is indefinite and I can use it to trade, barter and not waste gas and depreciate the vehicle chasing that stuff down. I also got a case of Clorox so we can self disinfect when and if required.

OK, so the above is "be prepared" Boy Scouts stuff. Well I tried the leaves off the trees stuff but nah, not for me. So here we go, including several live videos for your entertainment:

Hundreds line up' at LA Costco as panic buyers get supplies

A Shortage Of Toilet Paper In Australia

And The Toilet Paper Buying Spree Continues

Runs On Vintage Toilet Paper

I am really surprised about this article from CNN. I mean they are so full of sheet and dont even know it.

The psychology behind why toilet paper, of all things, is the latest coronavirus panic buy

I don't get it...Covid19 doesn't give you the chocolate rain. nor is there risk of running water being disrupted... so you could always just shower after you #2...

I was doing house cleaning a week ago or so. I had all these rolls of toilet paper that were the cheap single ply crap that I bought on accident. Hard on the tushy.

I almost tossed them in the garbage. Thank god I didn’t.

Turns out, that crappy toilet paper is worth it’s weight in gold...

Now I have enough TP to last 4 months

F U toilet paper hoarders!

The reason is to have a supply so you don't need to go out to resupply and risk infection, for some reason Americans are just now realizing that having a weeks worth of food in the house is a dumb idea.

No it doesn't. What I read It primarily attacks the respiratory tract and lungs. But that could change.


Q: Does the clinical presentation of COVID-19 differ in children compared with adults? A: Limited reports of children with COVID-19 in China have described cold-like symptoms, such as fever, runny nose, and cough. Gastrointestinal symptoms (vomiting and diarrhea) have been reported in at least one child with COVID-19. These limited reports suggest that children with confirmed COVID-19 have generally presented with mild symptoms, and though severe complications (acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock) have been reported, they appear to be uncommon. See more information on CDC Clinical Guidance for COVID-19.




Nah, not for me. Could always use a garden hose too outdoors or go Roman and go the sponge on a stick with a bucket of water. Nah to that too.

50 years ago sometimes we used newspaper when we run out of toilet paper. Had to wrinkle the paper and sprinkle water on it little bit to make it softer. Today's alternative would be printer paper. Same technique, different material.

Shower takes more time. OK for people who does #2 just once a day.

i understand that part but your not going to die without TP...food on the other hand.

I'd rather wipe my butt with a rag or take a shower than go on an involuntary fast for 14 days.

i guess that's my poop privileged showing again... i do poop only once a day, medically that's a lot IIRC, i think a BM every 2 to 3 days is considered "medically normal"

You have heard of a freezer right. Ours is full. I can also hunt and fish. I just need a good solar panel and inverter to keep it juiced when and if.

Well a rag can be buried or burned. Shower. Nah. Fasting is good for everyone. I mean look at the guys in the middle east. All thin.

We live on water. So we get a bucket and gravity does the rest. That's why I intentionally bought land on water. I can also irrigate my own crops and boil water for drinking.

What a refreshing change...Now this is like the old ATS we all loved. Not the constant mudpit antics. Good old stories of defecation and what to do about it.

When I was a kid we did that too. No to printer paper. Newspaper has more fiber!

a freezer?... no never heard of it


good for you on the hunting a fishing i can do that too... except i live in an apartment in a city... and i don't think my neighbors would take kindly to me picking off squirrels in the park if movement is restricted and i cant get to my land hahaha

agreed fasting is good, in moderation, and under your own choice. a 14 days fast is pretty extreme. but i'm not going to make my 4 y/o, 1y/o and newborn fast for 14 days.. pretty sure that's call starvation.

have you looked into a DC freezer they sell them for cars/camping and stuff. you would need a lot of juice and big battery bank to run a chest freezer.

my point being i am more concerned with food than TP. not having TP wont starve your children to death.

Thank you Grasshopper. One must learn to laugh in times of uncertainty and not be a tight arse. You will live longer.
