    That math paper from grammar school - institutional - makes ya wince. :twisted:
    The stuff they use just before applyin' the clearcoat. :twisted:
    The stuff Quality Control does final inspection on belt sanders with...:twisted:

    Just what's needed for every pass 'cept for "in the beginning."

    Depends a lot too on what You've been eatin'. :D

    Unfortunately my job requires a lot of sitting. So I must be clean or start giving off an unhealthy aroma. Not a good idea when in a room with 6 or 8 other people.

    But no, I don't actually measure it so it could certainly be less. But not much less.

    Another problem is you never know what you're getting until you start. Sometimes it's single ply, sometimes double. Sometimes it's fresh from the sawmill. Sometimes plush. Eventually you just get in the habit of rolling off an arms length and hoping for the best.

    I'd certainly never use a single sheet of TP. The question above seems to be more of a question for the ladies to me. :)

    I lived in India for a while. Ate with my left hand.

    To be honest, over all those spices, you can't taste any poop at all!

    Oh lawd! :lol:

    I think we've just discovered the origins of spice in food. I always thought it was there to enhance flavour, but...

    Suppose I've always used 3-ply around the house, two at the least. The only single-ply in my world comes with 5 or 8 screws and looks good with a maple neck.

    Next time at a Sheryl Crow concert, you might not want to shake her hand if she follows her own advice of one square PER SESSION. :lol:

    I wondered how long it would take to get around to Sheryl Crow. Man, when I heard what she had to say about toilet paper, I immediately understood how she ended up on a bus with Willie!

    Originally it was there to disguise the rotten meat, and kill the intestinal parasites, I believe.

    Mmmm, I feel like some Goat Biryani!

    And I was joking about the poop food ... I bought TP while in India ('cept ya can't flush it). It's a western conveniance being able to flush the TP. Most of the world reserves the sewers for bodily waste only.

    I always say, the one thing I truely can't live without is a sit-down toilet. Months without one and you develop a different relationship with the porcelain throne.

    It's not just the convenience - most people in the Indian subcontinent are pretty grossed out by the idea of toilet paper.

    As one of the people I spoke to when I was there said: "you don't like the idea of having to use your hand, we don't like the idea of smearing your s*** on yourself and walking round like that all day"
