That is a sh*tty problem to have.

Oh Communism... what a great system whereby resources are distributed from those that have to those that need... except they can't seem to get toilet paper right.
Seems like everyone needs toilet paper, so you can't just 'take it' from those that have.

I am too, and I'm really not sure when I'm going to be able to pick any up. Working late, then have to go get tire replaced, inspection, oil change, then there's the two dogs who will have to be walked, then I'll have to have a beer.

Meh, I got paper towels. Tear them up in quarters.

In college my roommates and I had a system of buying a large pack and when it was out the next guy bought and so on. When it came to the third guy he refused, so we just kept our respected rolls in our rooms and brought it with when needed. Now one day we knew there was no tp in there and third guy goes in for a while. The filthy beast turned on the shower and used his hand! He was from India, don't know if that had anything to do with it. He finally cracked and gave in to buying because that was so much of a hassle and the shiat we would give him.
/puns intended.

Ahh price controls. Trying to force people to sell things below cost will only lead to people not selling things.

It was hard to come by in the Fark progressives' ideological homeland back in the day

"Immediately post-breakup, one of only two toilet paper factories in the entire USSR had been in Latvia. That meant that the remaining pieces of the Soviet empire lost that valuable resource in the first wave."

According to BBC News, it's not just toilet paper.

The country is also experiencing shortages of milk, sugar, cooking oil, and cornflour.

"According to data from Venezuela's Central Bank, the scarcity index rose to 21% last month, the highest since the bank started tracking the measure in 2009.This means that out of 100 goods, 21 are not available."

They should eat more fiber - no wiping required.

NostroZ: Seems like everyone needs toilet paper, so you can't just 'take it' from those that have.


Well, no, most of the world uses toilet paper rarely if ever.  Left hand and water is more common.  As I recall, bidets were extremely common in Venez, but I'm not sure how much of that was just Caracas versus the poorer countryside.

Who is this magical strawman liberal that idolized the Soviet Union, again? You know, the antithesis of everything that a social progressive holds dear?

Now that we are producing bio-fuel from corn, there should be lots of corn cobs left over. Problem solved.

/Hopefully there will be the correct ratio of red to white cobs helping to cut down on wasted cobs.

I'm pretty certain the worldwide revulsion of lefties is the result of using the other hand for such business.

Stranded....on the toilet bowl.
What do you do when you're stranded
Without any roll...
To prove you're a man
You must wipe it with you hand.

He's not saying farkers liked the soviet union, just their ideology.

I had a brother in law that worked at Inland Steel in NW Indiana tell me about the Mexicans there that did that. The bathrooms constantly stunk because of it.

Reading Finnish is surprisingly unnecessary to get the drift.

leevis: He's not saying farkers liked the soviet union, just their ideology.


Who? That's what I'm asking. The ideology of leninistic/Stalinistic communism proved that it created an oligarchy far more oppressive than the previous system it vilified.

I can think of only one person on FARK who would even fit that bill, and both left, FARK Independants, and right posters on here hate him.

Other than that, I have not seen one serious post on FARK championing the soviet union, or it's ideologies.

The ideology is big government, and it's very much admired here on fark.

WRONG! That's WRONG! The Muzzies require that you use your LEFT hand for wiping your ass, and the right hand for everything else.

/all they had was sand, no water....

That's because they used it all cleaning up after Chavez.
