how long your supply will last

It’s one of the key questions as Americans wait out the coronavirus outbreak at home: How long will my stash of toilet paper last? A new website called “How much toilet paper?” claims it can roll out an answer for you. Simply set the top bar to how many rolls you currently have, then set the second bar to how many average bathroom visits you make per day – and the website’s calculator does the rest. If you have a standard package of four rolls, for example, the website says that will last you 32 days if you make an average of two bathroom visits per day.

That's crap. If you are female and you drink 100oz + water a day, one has 6-8 trips to the bathroom a day, so a roll lasts 3-4 days max

The site also allows you to customize how many sheets you use per use, how many sheets per roll, how many people in your house, etc. It may not be accurate, but playing with the assumptions gives you a range, and kills 15 minutes of boredom.

If your bladder is as old as mine, a roll lasts me about two days. Does that calculation include those who work outside the home, thus using their employers' T P and less of your own or are you a stay at home and go through one roll every other day? Many variables. Kids? Oh yoy!

My biggest TP related fear was being able to keep enough for our 10 employees and ourselves in our two offices. However our “Republican” governor took care of that for us by basically ordering a shutdown of our entire industry (dental practice). We went from worry about wiping to worry over losing our business in a matter of minutes.

There was a toilet paper shortage/panic in December 1973 due to the humor of Johnny Carson. The day after Carson read a news account about an upcoming toilet paper shortage, there was panic-buying of toilet paper by people who did not know the story Carson read on air was for commercial toilet paper, not consumer-grade toilet paper, which resulted in stores selling out of the product, therein reinforcing the rumor of a toilet paper shortage. What prompted this current toilet paper panic-buying does not seem clear; however, by mixing in a bit of conspiracy, it might suggest the panic-buying simply another way of tampering with this country’s economy.

Italy suffered more coronavirus-related victims than China with 4,825 confirmed deaths and 5,000 confirmed patients in the last 24 hours, Channel 12 reported on Sunday. Israeli doctor Gai Peleg, who is currently working to save lives in Parma, Italy, told Channel 12 that things are only getting worse as the number of patients keeps growing. As his department receives coronavirus patients who are terminally ill the focus is to allow patients to meet loved ones and communicate with them during their last moments despite the quarantine regulations.

Obamacare's 10th anniversary: A trillion

President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law a decade ago on March 23, 2010, promising an era of affordable healthcare. Instead, for the past decade, insurance premiums have skyrocketed while coverage options have declined. Clearly, this anniversary is no cause for celebration. Proponents of Obamacare point to increased rates of insurance coverage as proof the law achieved its goals. They fail to mention these gains were largely the result of Obamacare expanding Medicaid to cover nearly 15 million additional enrollees. They also leave out the fact that Medicaid expansion initially cost more than $6,300 per enrollee — and that the program

As you walk through empty aisles in the grocery store worried that your hours might be cut back at work and wondering how you’ll manage to keep paying your bills, it might seem preposterous to think that anyone in power would be worried whether you’ll be able to still go on a cruise. Luckily, the political class is on it. On Thursday, March 12, Wells Fargo recommended that investors buy stock in Carnival Cruise Lines, the embattled company facing a potential existential crisis due to the coronavirus outbreak. Carnival is “almost ‘too big to fail,’” argued Wells Fargo, and “there probably will be broad . . . government support.”

Lawyers for the Democratic National Committee claimed in court filings this week that the Steele dossier’s statements regarding Trump campaign aide Carter Page were “substantially true,” a defense that is at odds with the findings of the Justice Department’s inspector general. “Here, the ‘gist’ of the complained-of statements — that Page coordinated with Russian government contacts as an adviser to the Trump campaign — aligns with Page’s own description of his conduct,” the DNC lawyers asserted in a court filing on Monday.

Aaron Ginn is a Silicon Valley technologist who has written for Breitbart, TechCrunch, TheNextWeb, and Townhall. Ginn has published a piece at Medium about the Wuhan coronavirus. It’s called “Evidence over hysteria — COVID-19.” Ginn is not a scientist or a doctor, but he seems like a capable numbers cruncher and analyst. Moreover, he marshals views of medical and health professionals. I think his piece is worthy of your consideration. However, as with just about everything written on this subject, it should not be considered definitive. At this point, some level of skepticism is almost always in order. The table of contents of Ginn’s lengthy piece provides an idea of his views:

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,

Authorities in Pensacola, Florida, have arrested a 57-year-old man -- with the help of genetic genealogy testing and a cigarette -- for the 1985 murder of a young mother. Tonya McKinley was last seen ringing in 1985 at a restaurant. By the morning, the 23-year-old woman was found strangled and sexually assaulted on the side of the road, police said. "We collected evidence, interviewed her friends, family, and anyone that may have come across her [that] night," according to a statement from the Pensacola Police Department. "Despite having a good bit of physical evidence and dozens of interviews, over time, the trail went cold."

Yesterday, amid the ongoing economic and social disruptions caused by the coronavirus, rising numbers of infections and deaths globally, and widespread closures of schools and other extreme measures imposed across the country, the mainstream media decided we should have a national debate about whether it’s racist for President Trump to call it the “Chinese virus.” In what can only be described as a moment of unconscious self-parody, the media pretended not to understand why Trump would refer to the virus in geographic terms—as if they’d never heard of the Spanish Flu, West Nile Virus, Ebola, Zika, Lyme Disease, or the many other diseases named for their places of origin.

Crises have a way of shocking us out of complacency to consider how fragile and vulnerable civilization still is, and always will be. In the short run, that means retreating to humanity’s basic survival impulses and taking a triage approach to our priorities. In the long run, however, COVID-19 should prompt some reflection on our vulnerabilities and how to limit them in the future. One in particular bears rethinking: our ever-growing urban concentration and dependence on high-density, centrally managed mass transit. The relentless march of urbanization, in the United States and around the world, has been coming for a long time.

James O’Connor, shot and killed in the line of duty Friday, didn’t have to die. If not for Krasner treating violent and dangerous criminals with kid gloves, O’Connor would be alive today. O’Connor’s alleged killer, Hassan Elliot, should never have been on the streets. He was cut loose and slapped on the wrist by Krasner’s office time and again. Every time Elliot was arrested for serious felonies, Krasner’s indifference and ideology prevented the government from doing its duty to protect the public.

Vice President Biden is due Monday to begin giving briefings on the coronavirus crisis so as to appear like a shadow president. There’s just one problem. Sleepy Joe, as President Trump likes to call him, has been upstaged by none other than Andrew Cuomo. It seems the doughty Democratic governor of New York has emerged as a star, while Mr. Biden is still getting a studio set up in his home. Maybe Mr. Cuomo is the one whom the Democrats should run against Mr. Trump. He has been out there every day of late with detailed updates, wise asides, references to his time in Washington, and commentary on the Constitution.
