Slightly off topic.  In my previous job I go to different client sites and they have different toilet set up and toilet rolls.  The worst I could remember (I can't forget that anyway) is in a council, they have single ply and very rough.  Due to how my body clock works, I end up using their toilets quite a bit (almost every day when I was there) and it really hurts my bottom.

I remember it was so tough I can never punch a hole thru those paper.

And I remember one time the fire alarm went off because of a fire drill while I was having a number two.

DarthKermit: The cheapest one. My arse doesn't care.

(Mrs Darth here) - I agree with my OTHER half, it all gets flushed down the dunny in the same manner. tongue-out

I pamper mine with a hyper-allogeneic paper, not sure who makes it.  




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Vaguely related.

I rented an apartment in Paris for a few weeks last year and the toilet rolls there (the actual tube bit) are specially designed to be dissolved in water etc and flushed. Never seen that before.

I have also noted that toilet paper rarely comes in colours in NZ whereas it does elsewhere.

At work we went from 2 ply to some ultra long single ply stuff.
Now I don't go at work

At home, whatever is on the roll - though I prefer 2 ply over 3 ply

in primary school we had some kind of thing that was half way between tracing paper and baking paper, its only function was to smear your business up your crack and back, some seriously evil person thought that up.

a few years back me and the missus spent a year apart, in that one year I bought a 12 pack of the big roll toilet rolls, when we moved back in I was on the last roll...and I'm a very clean and tidy person. Since being back together we average 9 rolls a month! I know women need to use paper more than dudes due to lack of 'shake' option...but no clunge in the world should require half a tree per session. I have searched the house to see if she is building some kind of hamster style nest somewhere but it must be well hidden. This baffles me greatly every time I do the shopping.

Trust me, the female requirements for loo paper are vastly higher than a male's, by several orders of magnitude. Just... seriously, don't ask. There's no way to get around the TMI thing.

Eucalyptus leaves.

They're a natural antiseptic, biodegradeable, and leaves you feeling so minty fresh.

The general consensus among the guys at my old flat when we had female flatmates, was that females ate toilet paper. That, and they are cold blooded, and needed heaters continuously on, which explained the massive power increase we had post introduction of female flatmates. I've resigned myself to never finding out the true cause and left it to be one of life's great mysteries.
