Have all you guys been at Walmart buying toilet paper. Hang on need an emoji :4845:

I always buy mine when it's on sale, I stock up and I still have enough for about 2 mons.  :)

If there's no TP at the store, you can always use Kleenex.

I have been keeplng up on all of this, and the one thing that keeps coming back to my mind was the 1918-1919 Stanley Cup Finals between the Canadiens and the Seattle Metropolitans. The series came down to the final game (Game 6) when most of the Canadiens players got ill with the Spanish flu that was going around right after World War 1. This was an epidemic of massive proportions. At any rate, most of the Habs got sick, and "Bad" Joe Hall died. The series was ended in the classic "no winner" finals.

Hah! :lol: 

 

What gets me the most about this whole thing is: why toilet paper?  I mean, even if the worst of worst-case scenarios comes to pass and you can't leave your house, there's still a couple of dozen other things that you won't be able to get (food, water, propane, diapers, soap, toothpaste, medicine, etc.).  Why is everyone's #1 concern in all of this to stock up on mounds of toilet paper?  Sure I can't eat, drink or bathe, but at least my butt will feel great!

Ohio shutting down fan attendance at all sporting events.

Just got back from the grocery store and some moron had 12 packs (40 rolls per pack) of TP in his buggy,,,, nothing else. Unbelievable.:rolleyes:

i think the thing is that now that some people are hoarding it, others are like "crap (no pun intended) there wont be any because all these crazy people are hoarding the TP" so they buy a bunch.

vicious circle.
