My high school friend visited Russia in 1985 for an educational trip, and the main thing I remember from her trip report is that public bathrooms give you only one sheet of toilet paper. I could not conceive how wiping could be done properly with one.



1. Take a 4x4 sheet of toilet paper and fold it in half. You now have a 2x4 piece of toilet paper.

2. Fold it in half again. you now have a 2x2 piece of toilet paper.

3. Tear off a 1/4 inch of the corner that is closed. DO NOT THROW AWAY THE TORN OFF PIECE!

4. Open the sheet of toilet paper. You have a 4x4 sheet with a 1 inch hole in the middle.

5. Put your middle finger through the hole and wipe your rear.

6.Using your other hand grasp the tissue and remove your finger from the tissue. dispose the tissue.

7. Take the torn off piece of tissue and using the pointed end, clean under your middle finger nail.

That's how you use one sheet of toilet paper to wipe your rear.

I'm noticing a big disconnect in terms of stock levels here. Walmart is out of both food and meds. Grocery store is well stocked, so is Walgreens. So it seems like hoarders are lazy? or it's only fun if it can be done in one stop?

TY FatGeezus we have a winner. Thats exactly what the older Frenchies (Quebecois) told me in the early 80's. I answered them, "I've been camping, oak leaves and Norweigen Maple leaves are bigger, stronger, and more plentiful." They laughed, and said, yup, that works too, but not in winter.

rdw4potus: Walmart has lower prices that the common laborer types can afford. Chunky Soup $1.78 vs. $3.29... where are you going? Sometimes those that can afford the trappings of Democracy forget about those that can't.

I'd suggest small infrequent meals with this option.

What's with the toilet paper? Why is everyone buying tons of toilet paper? How much can one use?

I think itís more about limiting trips to the store. TP used to come in decent sized rolls with small center cylinders. Now it is loosely wrapped around a large center cylinder. Buy more, go to the store less. Go to the store less, expose yourself less.

Target still has stuff as competitive
as Walmart. Just ordered 50 cans of
green beans, diced tomatoes, green
chiles, chicken and tuna.

Not left field. Treat mail like hazmat.



An addendum, so as not to add more idiocy and misinformation...

I said this because of how many people I contact directly, or who retrieve their mail the minute the box shuts. As I understand it, the virus does not fare well outside of a host, so any mail or packages dropped midday should be fine for you to handle when you get home at 5.

Seemed to deserve clarification

So you order food online, but go to your local stores to take photos. Makes sense.

My brother took the pics. I only shop
at Walmart for canned stuff and my
store is picked clean. I found the same
items at Walmart for the same price.
And you bet I'm ordering heavy stuff
online, let them haul it to my back door.
