"The first improvement in toilet paper since the 1880s"

In 2009, Telebrands Corporation released the Comfort Wipe.
But that's not all! Josh Rimer introduces... the Comfortable Stick! Because toilet paper is so archaic and disgusting. (NSFW at all, at all)

Toilet Paper: More Than Just Something To Wipe With

This post is all about toilet paper, such as its history, toilet paper art, toilet paper facts, and toilet paper commercials. There's even links to toilet paper museums, detailed facts and scans of toilet paper from Germany and alternatives to toilet paper (both physical and virtual), which is great since finding ways to reduce your toilet paper consumption might just help save the planet or, at the very least, solve The Toilet Paper Problem.

Drastic action to save a dying planet.

Singer Sheryl Crow: "I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting." She continues: "...only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required". Sheryl also recommends we replace wasteful paper napkins with her ingenious "detachable dining sleeve". Is she pulling our leg? She must be: the BBC fell for it...

iToilet

iToilet : It's not a new idea, and it's been discussed before (though that link no longer works). Some guys in France have come up with a new and "improved" use for the Mac Mini. Other variations on the same theme.

When the ice melts, the Antarctic 500 rolls

In an effort to undermine California's vehicle global warming law, the auto industry has been running an ad claiming today's vehicles are virtually emission free. The Union of Concerned Scientists says "poppycock on that!" and is seeking a FTC false-advertising investigation. Fortunately, no matter who's bullshooting, you can help wipe away the problem.

High Tech Toilet Paper

High Tech Toilet Paper - "After top-secret tests in consumers' homes, company officials believe they've got a hit on their hands." Apparently most consumers prefer bath tissue which is slightly soggy. I really had no idea. Do people really do this?
