After some deep research, a keen mind, tenacious and relentless investigation skills I might have cracked the big issue of today
Why the toilet paper panic 2020

Little hyperbole but, why not, it’s a stupid subject and I don’t know why I care, story bullet points for drama

Wuhan went mental with the virus
New Years in China
People went from Wuhan to Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a little island off China mainland
Hong Kong doesn’t make Toilet Paper, they have no factories.
China supplies Hong Kong all its toilet paper
Hong Kong, rightfully go into panic, they need to import toilet paper from mainland China, big population and no internal secondary toilet paper industry.
Hong Kong citizens empty their toilet paper shelves from shopping centres and start a panic on the Island.
Like a virus out of Hong Kong itself, expat Chinese start telling people about their toilet paper paper issues and, well, it starts.

Pretty content that’s the scoop, take it to the bank, bet on that like a light horse.
Share that story at the next social event or maybe not, really it’s not going to win you any friends

It’s toilet paper but, interesting how some butterflies make the world change

I went to Walgreens, Wal-Mart, and a local grocery store today and couldn't find toilet paper. Thankfully there was an abundance of paper towels and I know how to tear paper.

I'm not sure of your butterfly-effect theory. I think people are just kinda dumb...or, to be nice, anxious and taking control of what they can.

Corn husks fly on butterfly wings to China or do they make their paper out of rice?

It’s the cardboard rolls in the middle and the plastic wrap. We haven’t been making it here and we can’t get it fast. Somehow this info got out and hoarding made it worse. We have started making those things here but not as quickly and not as cheaply. It’s happening with many manufactured products like water bottles (and other plastic bottle things too). We have to become less dependent on China for components, wrapping, and “widgets.”

It’s brilliant in it’s simplicity.

A leaf blower, a paint roller, two rolls of toilet paper and a little structural duct tape.

When the current crisis passes and TP is once again in abundance .

Us guys should have a contest .

I dont know...
Considering some guy got stuck with something like 170,000 dollars worth of hand sanitizer when amazon and Ebay cracked down on their enterprising price gouging partners...
I kind of think our own get rich quick desire to make easy money fast, internet business fiasco may have played a roll??
