    The manufactures are making masks with it?
    Maybe it will stop all the BS from spewing out.

    TP and PT in my area have become “Ho Hum” during the past three weeks. Pallets loaded at my local Costco.

    My local stores still don't have the brand I want. I like the Generic brand of single ply 1000 sheets per roll that's just like Scott tissue but half the price. For now I'm having to buy the Scott brand and there's no demand for the generic brand because most people like the fluffy 2 ply stuff so I might have to get the store to order it for me.

    TP, ammo, guns, freezers and exercise equipment are all still in short supply around here. Still can find it though. TPs around, guns are overpriced and in short supply, ammo’s light, freezers non existent and exercise equipment is over priced.

    Do you have to pay for paper bags in the store like in CA? If not, that may be a good alternative if you like it rough. Dad always the heaviest roll because it had more paper. Now if I can only convince the wife.

    I see lots of other shortages. In store wants to get something. “What do you think?” I tell her “buy it, buy two, it might not be here next time”

    I'm like the dad who always buys the heaviest roll because it has more paper but here's nothing "rough' about standard 1 ply toilet paper in any civilized country unless you're a sensitive female and/or have hemorrhoids.
