    National Toilet Paper Day HITs Wednesday August 26, 2020

    75% of the world's population doesn't use toilet paper.

    Prior to the invention of TP – people would commonly use hay, corncobs, sticks, stones, sand, moss, hemp, wool, husks, fruit peels, ferns, sponges, seashells, and broken pottery. Ouch!

    The first recorded use of toilet paper was in 6th Century China.

    It wasn't until 1935 that a manufacturer was able to promise "Splinter-Free Toilet Paper."

    Packaged toilet paper wasn't sold in the United States until 1857 - Joseph C. Gayetty created the first commercially packaged toilet paper in 1857. His toilet papers were loose, flat, sheets of paper – and he had his name printed on every sheet.

    The average person in the United States uses 100 rolls of toilet paper per year and the average household flushes about 80,000 sheets annually.

    7% of Americans admit to stealing rolls of toilet paper in hotels.

    Colored toilet paper was popular in the U. S. until the 1940s – and ceased in its popularity due to hygiene and cost issues - but still very popular in France and self absorbed celebrities.

    The reason toilet paper disintegrates to quickly when wet is that the combination of base fibers to make the tissue are designed to "disperse" in water for quick disposal.

    On the International Space Station, they still use regular toilet paper – but it has to be sealed in special containers and compressed.

    During Desert Storm, the U. S. Army used toilet paper to camouflage their tanks.

    In 1973 Johnny Carson caused a toilet paper shortage. He said as a joke that there was a shortage, which there wasn't, until everyone believed him and ran out to buy up the supply. It took three weeks for some stores to get more stock!

    When asked what necessity they would bring to a desert island, 49% of people said toilet paper before food.

        I had the same problem once and it took them a long time to reply. They give me a compensation hit, but it was for a fraction of the original.

        I haven't done one of theirs since...

      Good morning! Yesterday turned out to be very good so I'm hoping for a repeat today. Then this morning I woke up to 200 bonus emails from the navigation HITs. I'm guessing we are done for this round, but I was wrong last time so we'll see.

      My plan for the day is to run to the store for a lock for my middle schooler's locker and some lunch box items for my 4th grader. I'm going to go as soon as the stores open so I don't miss out on anything batches that are sure to drop starting at, say, 10 am Eastern.

      Happy Wednesday! I recently found a huge case of toilet paper at Sam's Club. Every where around here had been telling me TP was out of stock when I tried to place an online order. But I walked in the store and there was a mountain of it!
      Names have been drawn for the Our Hit Stop Gift Exchange. Don't forget to send a gift by December 21!.

        TP seems to be hit or miss, but in my NJ area it is not a problem. But disinfecting wipes are still rare.

      Good Morning Everyone. Hey so I am wondering if something in my OTTO setup is not right. Before the new update which I am now running 1.3.1 Otto was catching hits but it would not alert me that it did. Now with this update I have been running it since the release and its not catching one single HIT. I have dropped the amount under $1 and still nothing and thats running it maybe 5-6 hours a day. All the HITS I am catching I am doing manually. Nothing else is running but OTTO and I stay up on QUALS. Any thoughts?

        Watch the video and make sure your setting are correct. It definitely IS POSSIBLE that you can have Otto Heavy set up to not catch anything.
