    It's a mad house.

    I'm going to set up a toilet paper exchange, where you can trade different brands, ply number and qualities.

    I'll need to make sure it doesn't get hacked though...

    I'm thinking of producing reusable toilet paper using a cotton rag in different colours so families won't mix them up.

    More importantly with all the stress and added infections at the moment are we actually consuming more toilet paper at the moment? Can some-one provide data on the real actual usage bell curve?

    I'm surprised the toilet papers are still on the conveyer belt! It would be so easy to cut off the luggage tags and steal them.

    There is some research that all this panic is causing people to crap themselves resulting in a spike in toilet paper use.

    What I can’t understand is the “run” on toilet paper.

    Why is it happening?

    Don’t tell anyone but I’m going to buy all the tissues in my local shops then when everyone realises it’s the next craze I’ll start selling them locally for $10/box. Flu season will be here before you know it and toilet paper is a bit rough on the nose after a while

    Did anyone have toilet paper futures on the futures exchange?

    Here.
    The main difference between Bitcoin and toilet paper an an investment is that toilet paper has a practical application.
