OK, I'm single and slightly frugal with toilet paper. I manage with 4-8 sheets per day depending upon the composition of my crap, yet don't have dung flies greedily buzzing around my anus. My last purchase had 16 x rolls each of about 210 two-ply sheets. That means that a roll would last me about 5+ weeks. If I consider a 2 kid, 2 parent family with the kids using three times as much as an adult (total 8 adult equivalents) then that means that my 16 pack should last 10 weeks. Some discussion and voluntary self-rationing should get them to bring that to 13-16 weeks. If toilet paper is unavailable after something like 3 months then food is far more likely to be a far bigger problem.

Of course I may be grossly underestimating usage, maybe most people use enough toilet paper in each session to choke a hippo.

You are vastly underrating the amount of toilet paper women use. I'd swear they eat the stuff!

On the 1800s they used corn cobs, so there is always that.

Now that the political boards are closed the level of discussion has been raised to butt wipe talk, awesome.

My daughter is returning shortly early from college, going back to the OP's point. Apologies if I have distracted from the message of distress concerning the current difficulties.

Edit: Prior posts were moderated.

Haha .. I am not entirely sure about the toilet paper business. Transport people got robbed at knife point by 3 guys for 600 rolls of toilet paper - ON FOOT. How the heck did you plan to run with 200 rolls of toilet paper each? They were caught shortly after. Imagine telling your cell mate what you are in for ...
A bum wrap.

They've closed national parks here in Poland, together with forcing unlawful acts of "home imprisoning" and controlling citizens. I'm not say that those are objectively bad actions, but their resolution is far from legal.

This, and me being left practically jobless, made me think that I should change my sector of operation and rebrand myself from archivist to African-style warlord.
