Toilet Paper

MORE THAN YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT TOILET PAPER FOR MY 19,000th POST

1. The first recorded use of toilet paper was in 6th Century China.

2. By the 14th Century, the Chinese government was mass-producing it.

3. Americans got the idea of using paper from the Japanese but packaged toilet paper wasn't sold in the United States until 1857.

4. Joseph Gayetty, the man who introduced packaged TP to the U.S., had his name printed on every sheet.

5. Global toilet paper demand uses nearly 30,000 trees every day.

6. That's 10 million trees a year.

7. It wasn't until 1935 that a manufacturer was able to promise Splinter-Free Toilet Paper.

8. Seven percent of Americans admit to stealing rolls of toilet paper in hotels .

9. Americans use an average of 8.6 sheets of toilet paper per trip to the bathroom.

10. The average roll has 333 sheets.

11. Historically, what you use to wipe depended on your income level.

12. In the middle ages they used something called a gompf stick which was just an actual stick used to scrape.

13. Wealthy Romans used wool soaked in rose water and French royalty used lace.

14. Other things that were used before toilet paper include: hay, corn cobs (see note at end), cotton rags, sticks, stones, sand, moss, hemp, wool, husks, fruit peels, ferns, sponges, seashells, knotted ropes, and broken pottery.

15. Roughly 70% of the world still doesn't use toilet paper because it is too expensive or there is not sufficient plumbing.

16. In many Western European countries, bidets are seen by women as more effective and preferable to toilet paper.

17. Colored toilet paper was popular in the U.S. until the 1940s.

18. The reason toilet paper disintegrates so quickly when wet is that the fibers used to make it are very short.

19. On the International Space Station, they still use regular toilet paper but it has to be sealed in special containers and compressed.

20. During Desert Storm, the U.S. Army used toilet paper to camouflage their tanks.

21. In 1973 Johnny Carson caused a toilet paper shortage. He said as a joke that there was a shortage, which there wasn't, until everyone believed him and ran out to buy up the supply. It took three weeks for some stores to get more stock.

22. There is a contest sponsored by Charmin to design and make wedding dresses out of toilet paper. The winner gets $2,000.

23. There was a toilet paper museum in Wisconsin, The Madison Museum of Bathroom Tissue, but it closed in 2000.

24. The museum once had over 3,000 rolls of TP from places all over the world, including The Guggenheim, Ellis Island, and Graceland.

25. There is still a virtual toilet paper museum called Nobody's Perfect.

26. In 1996, President Clinton passed a Toilet Paper Tax of 6 cents per roll, which is still in effect today.

27. Many Muslims wipe their bums with their bare hand but always the left hand. They eat with their right hand. If you are caught shop lifting, your right hand is cut off forcing you to eat with your poopy left hand which pretty much means you eat alone.

28. The most expensive toilet paper in the world is from Portuguese brand Renova. It is three-ply, perfumed, costs $3 per roll and comes in several colors including black, red, blue and green.

29. Beyonce uses only red Renova toilet paper.

30. When asked what necessity they would bring to a desert island, 49% of people said toilet paper before food.

31. Queen Elizabeth II wipes her royal bum with silk.

33. Koji Suzuki, a Japanese horror novelist best known for writing The Ring, had an entire novel printed on a single roll of toilet paper.

34. The novel takes place in a public bathroom and the entire story runs approximately one hundred and three feet long.


Note: Standard practice with corn cobs is to go to the outhouse with two red cobs and one white one. First you use a red one, then a white one (to see if you need another red one) ! .

I think we'd be better off stocking up on toilet paper more than anything else for when the SHTF. You could trade it for all the food, guns and ammo you need.
