    Are you willing to sacrifice?

    Soft toilet paper is really rough on the environment.

    If the Europeans can use a rough sheet of paper why can't we?

    I'm still trying to figure out why butt wipes have to be bleach white?

    There's a lot of chemicals and costs to make it white.

    As one still using corn cobs, I am not familiar with this "soft" tissue.

    How about we give up something else and keep the toilet paper?

    Re: Are you willing to make the sacrifice?

    Isn't the DM Register printed on smaller sheets now so it can double as toilet paper?


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Are you willing to make the sacrifice?

    Speaking of Butt Wipes and the Des Moines Register.........Do you guys like to spend about 20-minutes studying the sports page while pinching a herm?

    I find it to be one of the most pleasant, quite times of my day

    Re: Are you willing to make the sacrifice?

    I already spent $6000 to replace my septic system from the house out. I buy the TP that dissolves the best to keep things flowin'. I don't know if it's the cheapest, but I know it's not the softest.

    Europeans aren't perfect, but they do some things very well (escalators that save electricity by only running when people stand on them for example).
