Not to mention they will be sitting in the front of the church talking about how godly they are!

I guess they want to look spiffy when their Armageddon nears the end and their maker calls for them.

Wife went the hairdresser yesterday, if she wanted to use the bathroom she had to ask for paper because some patrons were stealing the TP so they no longer kept it in the bathroom.

I agree. Those plastic bottles that people think are fine because they recycle them can only be recycled at the most twice. Then they end up in the land fill.


$600 for a Nova whole house filter; a couple of reusable water bottles.

You need it (toilet paper) because there is no hand sanitizer.

Perhaps toilet paper has become a form of currency, like cigarettes in a prison.

Most plastics can only be recycled once, at which point they are normally converted into clothing or some other commodity which can't be recycled again. This means that once the second item reaches the end of its lifespan, so too does the original plastic – and it ends up in a landfill.May 25, 2018

I have read on other sites that they can be recycled up to ten times. But not as bottles. The answer is probably somewhere in the middle.
