    How spoiled is a society that during a crisis show's one of the hoarded items

    To be Toilet Paper.? Are we really that soft? Are even our basic needs now part of the fluff economy of non-essentials? What does this say about us a society and our ability to endure collective hardship?
    There are other ways to solve this issue if it comes down to it. Do people, especially the urban young even know that??

    I'm just wondering how they go through so much toilet paper. A roll lasts me a long time but then I don't wear makeup.

    FEMA recommends 30 day supply of food... I tend to keep a 60 day supply... 60 day supply of toilet paper is one large Costo Package...

    when the supposid aliens dig up humantity in the distant future they will see we had no food but tons of TP lying around

    Type 1 people are always stocked up just because. I have so much of it I don't even know how much there is...angel soft MAGA rolls.




    This is a true story...about oh I don't know...6 or 8 years ago... local grocery store had a RIDICULOUS low price on TP and I bought a lot of it; $200 worth. It lasted us well over a year or longer. We took pictures and it was so funny. I had gone to pick up one of the boys who was working at the store. So here I come at 10:30 at night home with a whole SUV full. The boys and I took pictures, then made a fort and took more, and then hid them all in the upstairs bathroom in storage areas. Didn't tell hubby. The kids and I laughed over it for a week and then we told "dad". This is what passes for entertainment in the country where everything is beautiful and funny. Hell, my chickens are the funniest thing going and they really are silly. Anyone who has yard chickens can vouch for that.

    The weather here is beautiful and my azaleas are starting to bloom. Time to start getting the garden ready. Jeez, I hope I don't get sick and die. I really don't have time for that. Besides....YIKES !!!
