      No joke, KROGER did set a nationwide policy according to employees, of not accepting any returns on TP, sanitizer, etc. Screw the hoarders.

      In a rare show of solidarity, Retail CEOs announce no returns on toilet paper for any reason at WH Rose Garden press conference.

        In Hong Kong, I've seen posts on social media of floor to ceiling piles of TP in tiny apartments here. The shortage lasted 3 weeks until hoarding capacity was saturated, and the distribution system caught up.

        TP and hand sanitizer reappeared all over the city within a 24 hour period.

        @Lasollor... Toilet paper is a thing in Japan? Since I moved to India, I find it one of the most disgusting things to be reminded of when I visit UK.

        Mind you, in this situation, the piece of toilet paper one uses has one advantage: it hasn't been touched by the previous crapper(s). But then, that's just another wash-hands-well thing.

        @Thad E Ginathom Combination of western type toilet with remote controlled bidet function(you can select the strength and temperature of the water) AND toilette paper is standard in modern buildings in Japan. (We have this at home) But many old houses with older toilets doesn’t have the bidet function so they use toilette paper.

        I only recently heard about the OK Computer Sessions they “officially leaked” last summer. Apparently available for only 18 days via Bandcamp. I was backpacking nearly that whole time and missed it. Do they still exist anywhere?

        I sampled some of it while it was up and was not really impressed. I don't think it is avail anymore. This quote sums it up"‘Never intended for public consumption (though some clips did reach the cassette in the OK Computer reissue) it’s only tangentially interesting. And very, very long."
        The oknotok white cassette is available to stream in the library.

        A win in South Carolina, on the other hand, makes an important statement. Mayor Pete is polling precisely 0% amongst blacks, because he's a "cocksucker." Whereas my black family & friends are quite comfortable with "good ole Uncle Joe."

        It can be a good start, helps with donations really. Beyond that it might keep you in the game until more desirable states. The press just loves the shit out of it though.

        Ouch. But if you're willing to pay $500 for a lifetime license you'll be willing to pay $700. I'm also a JRiver user since the days of Jukebox. It's surprising how many people complain each year about a $20 upgrade price to the next version. Roon is in for some complaints from the peanut gallery seats.
