As noted in the other thread, let's do our best to keep the politics out of these threads and the forum.

It would not surprise me one bit if we find China did this on purpose.  Look at the sheep in this country and how they've reacted.  Going crazy buying toilet paper?!?!?!  Just the downturn in the market (however temporary) is enough to tell me they could have planned this for this purpose alone.

I think I'll just hole up for a few days.  I'm disgusted with people in general.  Just read on  a Lewis County site that there was a run on the grocery stores and shelves were "getting stripped" of everything.

I suspect something similar is going on here, but that site had gotten so stupid that I unjoined.

Stay calm and healthy!

All the cabin owners showed up down south it seems....the local stores were fine at 9 am, stripped and gutted in many parts by 6 pm.

Somebody told me he hasn't bought new toilet paper in years.  I said I didn't know people bought used TP.   eek.gif

I read a post by a colleague in Melbourne. She showed up for for normal weekly Friday 7am shop. Shelves bare of several staples.

Of course one empty section was tea.

I have an aversion to moss.  I spent too much time where moss has volcanic ash mixed in it.  Hmm, might work like Lava soap though.  Not gonna try.  You try.

Good luck.  I was just at Home Depot and the bidet aisle was stripped clean.  A guy had just walked out with the last 5 of them.

It's a great leaf. So is Lamb's Quarter and Vanilla Leaf.
