Apparently the average American (US) uses 57 sheets of toilet paper a day!!
that's a lot of shoot
Someone should tear them off a strip.
"Ride 'em Bronco"
In France I spotted 'training toilet rolls' for youngsters with the sheets being numbered in blocks of four: 1-4 i.e. it encouraged the use of four sheets at a time. I am still bemused that a company felt that there was a need for such stuff and that there was a market for it.
My brother lives in Michigan and from the amount of food he eats I'd say that that's a conservative number.
Saw something on this on "Dom Jolly's Happy Hour" They were saying that Americans tend to "scrumple" where europeans fold, hence using less paper.
4 sheets is optimum;
& the final sheets to polish !
I thought it was 'Wipe, lube, wipe, wipe, wipe'?
LOL! I think you may have been a little confused in applying the Mickle method....
Mickle has a method for wiping ones arse?
Jeezus. Is there nothing he doesn't know?
Personally I prefer the full strip down method.
In the Army, you are issued with one piece of bog paper.
A 1-in square is removed from the centre. Don't throw away the removed piece.
Poke middle finger throught hole and do the necessary. Fold paper aound finger, clean and throw away.
The 1-in square of paper? Fold into four and with resulting sharp point, clean finger nail.
I used to bring my own toilet paper to "camp" (army cadets) for that very reason
And here's the method being demonstrated! Safe for the squeamish!
Not that I am a vegetarian, but given the amount of red meat the Americans allegedly eat, I am suprised they go daily.
Or is this an average calculated on the amount they use during their single weekly visit?
My apologies to our American cousins.
