TP Shortage, and no, It's Not Venezuela
« on: April 16, 2017, 10:41:30 AM »
But it is another Communist Utopia, China. :laugh:

China’s latest attempt to stop a crime wave sweeping the communist nation — toilet paper theft.



With toilet paper in short supply in China, some of the country’s 1.3 billion citizens have been helping themselves to the free toilet found in public bathrooms in places like the popular Temple of Heaven park in Beijing.

The government’s solution to blunt the outbreak of toilet paper pilferers was to install a new, high tech toilet paper distribution system…machines equipped with cameras that scan the face of the person before they enter the stall. Once the face is recognized, approximately two feet of toilet paper is dispensed.

What happens if you need more paper? Well…you can get more paper. However, the machines are programmed to wait nine minutes before delivering an additional serving of the precious paper. Depending on your situation, those nine minutes could feel like an eternity.

Wouldn't it be easier to increase the supply? I'm sure the US could fulfill their needs and help our balance of trade.

just TWO FEET of Toilet paper...????

Barely enough for a single wipe.  Better get useto wiping, folding, wiping, folding, wiping.

Yep, I too find it amazing that China can't seem to come up with enough TP.
But then, this is a communist country, where spreading the wealth....ahem, usually means the "Pee-ons" always get shorted. Or would that be "Crapped-ons"? :laugh:

I tried to find out the reason for the TP shortage, and the best I can surmise is china has two faces, the one the world is allowed to see, and the one the majority lives in, which is abject poverty.
Freshwater, Hell, water alone seems to be a huge problem, fresh or not, far and above TP, so I guess the Commies have to prioritize who gets what and how much first. TP falls on the 'short list'. :laugh:

Ok, ok.. and I'll admit, I don't use Kleenix facial tissue for blowing my nose, those Kleenix Hand Towels work nicely.
You can call me a "blow-hard" when it comes to Kleenix..
