It's such a pleasure to be on this civilised forum at this worrying time, but I must admit some threads on other forums that I occasionally visit can be a source of much amusement (almost certainly unintentional on the part of the original poster).
My favourite so far has got to be 'How many rolls of toilet paper do you use a day'.

Personally, I just bought toilet paper six months ago or so, so I should be good for a while yet. Wink

The spouse worked out it was one and a bit rolls per week per person. Of course this 'depends' (see what I did there...) on how big the rolls are, what ply they are and how tightly they are wound... Still, I have been looking at some of the 'food' (snacks, 'feasts' etc) pictures being posted online and I would say from the quality of it (zero green-stuff, lots of fried carbs, cheesy muck and fibre-less bread) that many people would be suffering constipation, so would use less than that...

If you're self isolating at home and you have a shower in your bathroom I'm not sure you need any at all.

Hmm... thanks for that image, Rockula, now each time I see a shower I will never be able to get it out of my head...  Tongue
