    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.

    1 up

    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.

    Job done.

    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.
