Venezuela running out of toilet paper

21 posts in this topic

Venezuela’s socialist government is scrambling to find new sources for toilet paper as consumer supplies run out nationwide, according to The Associated Press.

That's serious business when you run out of toilet paper.

Unfortunately they are facing shortages on things like milk, coffee and butter.

All things we take for granted, here in the land of the spoiled.. :no:

What if we could remake cigarette filters into toilet paper?

Cannabis plantations? More efficient, less environmentally taxing etc than the current resources. They also make for a higher output per square meter which makes for more farmland for cattle and coffee plantations.

Which greedy industries and backward/ignorant politicians are holding this back?

That is one of the things I dislike about travel to the States. They have toilet paper, not sprayers or bidets. For a fat man that is hard to do; it is also unsanitary and doesn't do a complete job, resulting in "skid marks." It is also wasteful of trees.

But at least you do not have to use squat toilets, which is tough for a fat man, too.

Those are rare now and pretty much just in the country. I think its healthier for reasons I won't get into.

Venezuelans go through about 150 million rolls of toilet paper every month

Well, they will have to change their diet.

So glad we have TP. Think of how useful it is. Can ever decorate your neighbors house with it.
