    Re: Who says that the yanks don't care about the Earth?

    there was an interesting survey some years ago (Geoff will post a link no doubt) about the different ways US citizens and UK citizens use toilet paper. It seems we fold the sheets, this being more economical, whilst the Americans crumple theirs, being ever so wasteful. Someone got a PHD out of that, or not.

    Andrex moist tissues, cost a fortune but by god are they refreshing!

    Nice if you use them on your bottom too :P

    I've no idea how some people use next to no toilet paper, I need to know it's spotlessly clean before I give up with the old heave-ho wiping.

    Ace topic, any others? how about genital warts? I've never had one but if someone had a picture I'm sure we could debate it! :-D

    Haha, this thread made me laugh initially now it's getting even worse! I heard a discussion about it on the radio and the DJ was like 'but... what happens if you have "gastric issues?"' . I think some celebs just say it for the attention.

    If these celebs want to do their bit then they can wipe their arses with their hands and just wash them after!

    It's for the good of the world.

    I think some celebs don't live in the Real World™ or know what it is! Â

    Everyone knows the three sheets rule. . . .

    One up
    One down
    One to polish

    Oh, and no I don't follow it. I use as much as is necessary to complete the task!
