Oh Lord how I second that. There are people out there that if you threw a penny in between them, they would make world's thinest copper/zinc wire.

That's truly sad. People with wads of cash stealing toilet paper.

That's because of the laxity in child raising now.

When I was a boy, if I did something like that, my mom would have whaled the tar out of me in public.

Now some busybody would call the cops and she would be arrested for that behavior.

In case you haven't guessed, I believe in corporal punishment.

If these guys can't remember or won't take the time to stock their yachts with toilet paper do you think they'd remember to stock it with emergency supplies? .. stock an abandon ship bag? ...a decent life raft? .. enough life jackets? ... an SAK? ...with a corkscrew? Wait, that's the one thing they might carry.

One thing I have noticed about people who have more money than the average person is that they always moan about lack of money!

I wish too that people would take a more realistic view towards knifes. I always tell people its a tool, not a weapon.

My ideal SAK would have a large locking blade, saw, cap lifter, magnifying glass, awl, phillips/corkscrew, ballpen and tweezers.

I read an article in a knife magazine one time.It stated that there are more laws and ordinances restricting knives than fire arms.It's a sad state of affairs when you cant carry one of mankinds oldest tools but can carry a Glock or S&W.

Back when i had a hardware store i heard a lot of wonderful stories of what can happen to toilet paper. The most memorable one was a maintenance person whose full toilet paper rolls would be removed and stuck down into the toilet and then the toilet would be flushed repeatedly until the bathroom flooded. He came in one day and said that he had found the answer to his problems, a toilet paper dispenser that would only dispense one square at the time. He purchased one way screws to keep anyone from taking his new expensive dispensers. A month later he is back in asking how to remove one way screws because since the delinquents couldn't flood the bathroom any more they would take and pull one sheet out half way and light it with a cigarette lighter which would burn up the inside of the dispenser. The maintenance personal that have toilet paper stolen are getting off easy.

If one unwinds a roll to the right amount, soaks it in water, and chambers it in a 75mm pack howitzer ahead of a blank round, it really travels a loooooong way...

Don't ask how I know...
