A personal tip if you're having trouble sourcing toilet paper - try the smaller shops. I've noticed a pattern recently - at least in our part of the UK. The main 'big' supermarkets have no toilet roll, the smaller local supermarkets occasionally have some, and the tiny local corner shops (including petrol stations) often (but not always) have some.

Perhaps the hoarders descend on the bigger shops so they can panic-buy a wider range of produce? It's only small-scale local evidence I suppose, but worth trying these smaller shops if you're running low on essentials. Applies to the other 'hot' items these days, too, such as dry pasta.

As for online in the UK, Wilco had some last time I checked, although there's about a week to wait for delivery.

I believe that this problem with the toilet paper existed in the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak.
During the last two weeks i didn't see any problem sourcing toilet paper from markets ( even the big ones).
I am not living in the UK but I think that the same happens all around the world now.

...There's also another silver lining. If you run out of food you won't even have to wipe your butt anymore. Somebody should tell that to those TP hoarders.

Well if the hoarding idiots run out of food, they can always eat their toilet paper stash.
Add a little water to mush it down, salt, pepper....saute...mmmmm, yummy!
From what I can determine,  the same people that hoarded toilet paper probably filled their spare freezer with meat and other items and filled their pantries with canned goods and pasta. I doubt that they will be running out of food anytime soon.

I would be interested in statistics, how many kilograms of meat and pasta corresponds to 1 pack of toilet paper)) There must be some proportion between these stocks made. And above this proportion, toilet paper should not be sold.

Boy, I didn't realize that toilet paper is such a coveted item. Tried to order some this weekend with my grocery store delivery, no dice. Waited to get some today, store shelf empty. Called one store, nope. Called another store, got lucky. However, I only bought one package of 12. The clerk asked me if I wanted more. I hope that I didn't make a crucial error. Although, I am sure cloth rags and frequent showers will work. Or is running water going to be in short supply soon, too? How long, exactly, are people expecting to be holed up? We only have like 33 presumptive cases in the state that I am in at the moment, and I live in a rather large state.(area wise)

There will be about 10K cases in the US in a week or so. 100K in a month, 1M in 3 months, unless the US government steps in and shows some backbone, close the borders, suspend schools, people gatherings, airports, public transportation and pour money into the development of coronavirus vaccines.

I would buy a year's supply if I were you.  You live close to water sources or have a hand pump, don't you?




here in my country, pail and dipper is the only solution to tissue shortage. tissue is nothing here.  Grin

There are a lot of people who have lived all their life with TP. So, please explain to them if you wipe with the pail, or if it is the dipper. And how how it is done.

Thanks.

Cool

BTW, how do you know that your TP isn't infected, right from the factory?



The chances are small that the virus will remain viable by the time it makes it to your ass.  Furthermore, there is no evidence that the virus infect someone through the rectum. Also, one should wash their hands after doing their business, which further makes it unlikely to get infected this way.

Some TP is mild. Other is strong. To make it differently like this, what about the chemicals in it?

Has anybody done a study to see if the chemicals you absorb from TP weaken your immune system enough so that you get CV?

Cool

sorry but this is getting hilarious. lol  Grin Grin Grin

but for everyone who doesnt know how it works - you need to collect the water using the pail and use the dipper to get some water from the pail to clean your ass...
have you been in the 3rd world countries or remote/rural areas? thats how they do it. no TP needed
actually having TP in the house for them is already a luxury!

So, do they transfer CV through the cloth towel they wipe their bottom and their hands with? Remember, there is a shortage of bleach, as well.

The dipper method was new to me when I moved to SE Asia, although I'd already encountered the bidet on visits to Japan and my workplace had the Japanese toilets and I'd become a fan of those.  After actually trying it I don't even bother to have TP in one of my bathrooms at all, and the other one has some for other purposes.  It can be nice to pat cleaning water off your ass, but is unnecessary even for that and usually I don't bother.  Obviously a good hand cleaning is in order after taking a shit no matter how one cleans their ass, but TP is useless for drying one's hands after that.

Paper kitchen towels are, in my experience, the real luxury.  When 'panic shopping', which I'd been doing for a month and a half before the lockdowns started, I stocked up on those.

Sounds like, with all the quarantining coming into being, that the paper mills will shut down for a time. If people's hoard of TP doesn't last, they just might learn Asian ways. It'll save them a whole bunch on TP in the long run. But how many paper mills will shut down because of it, when this is all over?

Toilet paper was just another among the others that people hoard. It made it to the news because it sounds funny but people also hoard masks, vitamins, dry food, paper towels and anything else which is useful in real life. Toilet paper is happened to one of those useful stuff.

Some people might laugh, when this is all over. But they will respect their decisions regarding attempts to protect themselves until they could find out what the CV truth is.

Once they find out that CV is mostly hearsay and fake news, they will be angry at government and the medical, and embarrassed a little about themselves.

Let's hope we all wake up to this CV medical scam before government enacts some kind of a collapse of society.

To late.  The die is cast by the shutdowns alone.  Lots and lots of failed businesses, failed lives, and foreclosures are now inevitable.  Actually the monetary system re-set was fast approaching the non-optional point anyway.  They just got out in front of it with this hoax.

We should get signed up with all kinds of exchanges so that we have options for selling our BTC when the price jumps up for a short while.

Sell for what?  I certainly don't want to be sitting on any country's fiat with trillions being printed out of thin air.

A shit-bag person might do well to buy during the engineered deflation and end up with may more land than they know what to do with.  Of course private ownership of land (by goyim) is probably not in the cards under the upcoming 'new world order' so it would likely be taken away anyway.
