This awesome toilet paper use calculator says we have enough on hand to last for 71 days.
I don't hold out a lot of hope that the hysteria will have subsided in 71 days, but maybe the people who hoard toilet paper will run out of storage space by then. Or die from something other than the dreaded Coronavirus.
I'm not thrilled with the empty produce section at the store. We need our bananas, grapefruit, avocados, radishes and lettuce you know, and I look forward to enjoying them again someday. But the empty shelves on every other aisle have made it easier to imagine what it was like living in the Soviet Union in the 1970s. So there's that.
There's always online boutique toilet paper, if you're in need of some $3 a roll buttwipe.
To clarify: we don't have 71 days worth of toilet paper because we waited in line at 5 a.m. to get it. Last time I bought toilet paper was in January. I just buy a lot at one time. It's the beauty of Amazon (where most toilet paper is also sold out) delivering things to your front door. "Here's your two giant boxes of toilet paper Mr. Phillips. You're not weird at all. Have a nice day!"
While the latter is obviously correct, the first part, which is the conclusion, is (equally obviously) wrong. There are such things as lethal (infectious) deseases, right? The logic of evolution, not to kill the system that enables you to live, has not impeded the existence of Malaria, Ebola, Cholera or Trump.They say after a while only the milder versions of the virus will survive. killing your host is a bad tactic for survival.
No shit, right? The $ we got is a drop in the bucket compared to how much certain companies got. I'll take the 1200 & sure it will help but it ain't shit for many.I just noticed that the government cheese ($1200) landed in my bank account yesterday...
Too bad they didn't just split that 2.2 trillion between all of us. That would have been $6,700 for every man, woman, and child (in America). That might have made everyone a little happier.
I hear ya and i get what i call the Coronavirus Blues. And from what you've said, sounds like depression to me but i'm no doctor. Been there too tho. It's okay also bc depression's on a scale. You could have lots, some, a little. My issue is i'm high functioning so i don't realize until i'm knee deep in the whoopla because i keep doing stuff. On the outside, things are normal.I've seen the term "collective trauma" thrown around a few places on the internet when talking about the pandemic, and while I don’t know if it's collective (I guess that’s why I'm asking), I'm certainly starting to feel it myself.
