    Let's ask about the really important things in the soldier's life ...:

    1. What was the daily ration of toilet paper a British soldier was entitled to during World War II?
    2. What was the same ration for a US soldier?

    The British Jeyes-impregnated paper was smelly, skiddy stuff. At least the Waldorf version looks a bit more like what we're used to nowadays. Jeyes and Izal impregnated paper in those cardboard boxes was (along with sheets from the Daily Sketch) pretty much all we had when I was a kid.:sick:

    There was similar "paper" in the former GDR. Sometimes it was called "Stasi" because - like the East German secret service - it was characterized by "unyielding severity".

    A friend of mine tried it out: The wood content of this "paper" was so high that you could use it to sand car paint ...

    In my German figure forum, a quiz has been running successfully for three years, in which all sorts of things are discussed, if they are only historical and / or have to do with figures.

    Who is a question can then be asked.

    That's why I'm always looking for unusual questions - and that's one of those ...

    How to wipe ass with one sheet of toilet paper. Sorry, no video but follow instructions.

    1... Take one square piece of toilet paper from roll.
    2... Fold in half.
    3....Fold again so sheet is quartered.
    4....Take folded sheet and tear off the corner of inside folded sheet...save corner tear off.
    5....unfold sheet to reveal hole in center of sheet.
    6....insert index finger in hole and proceed to wipe ass with index finger.
    7....use saved corner tear off too clean finger nail.
    If you have followed these instructions carefully you have succeeded in the process using one sheet of toilet paper to wipe your ass.
