History Guy and toilet paper
« on: March 17, 2020, 12:52:32 AM »
I don't have cable TV (my choice....don't spend the money) so I seek other interesting things online.  I like this guy's videos which never seem to veer into modern politics:

He has a jillion vids...always interesting.  I need to contribute......

Reason I brought this up was his fascinating video about toilet paper which is in now in short supply here in Salina.

I watch his videos too. He covers a lot of fascinating bits of forgotten history and does a nice job telling the story.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I just checked and I have two rolls of TP so I could mail you one if you have a critical need.

Hi, John.  Thanks for the offer, but I found two 4-packs of "megaroll size" Charmin at Walgreens today.  Well stocked now!

Good thing, I may need both of my rolls.  :o

 I just returned from my weekly grocery shopping trip and my local Walmart shelves were cleaned of TP. I guess my neighbors were scared by the hyperbolic media reporting into imagining some kind of imminent toilet paper shortage, causing an actual toilet paper shortage. What are they thinking (rhetorical), they clearly are not thinking.

If humans are the top of the food chain, that doesn't say much for the rest of the animal kingdom.  ::)

PS: I was able to secure every other item on my shopping list, but I generally buy healthy foods. The freezers were picked pretty clean of processed frozen dinners (that I wouldn't buy on a bet), but I had no trouble finding my frozen blueberries. Likewise the flour aisle was almost picked clean except for the whole wheat flour that was on my list.

yes, thats pretty much the cause... wall to wall news reports about shoppers hoarding, leading other shoppers to fear scarcity even without any justification, and hoard themselves.

Thx, Pucho. Needed that ROFLMAO :D

Just returned from shopping. Some items are gone. Probably more to do with distribution than real shortages.
Why is it people love to believe and hate to know?

I was a little surprised. Apparently both Amazon and Walmart are hiring over 100k workers each to deal with the increased business.

I ASSumed the TP was just a short term outage and checked the walmart website to order some... The website says the items can only be purchased in the store (that didn't have any yesterday)? Catch-22....

Reminds me of the old egg joke about the farmer selling a dozen eggs for only $0.99... Of course he didn't have any eggs, but a really great price.

I am trying to keep a low profile on social media about my personal TP drama since I don't want to scare the children.

A friend sent me this jpg and I thought it was amusing.
