RantA Further Decline In Civilization Pin

I was online doing a purchase - amongst other things, it include nose wipes (i.e., facial tissue) at about half the price anywhere else for brand-name stuff.

So - I had a thought, this AM: what about rolls of ass wipes (i.e., bathroom tissue)? OK - no deals worth getting but I did learn a shocking truth about the decay of all that is soft and textured in the world of personal sanitation:

Some rolls, from pretty much every brand, call themselves "quadruple rolls" and yet only have about 400 wipes/roll. (Angel Soft was 429/roll - just checked out of curiosity). That means, since these are quadruple rolls, that they make rolls with <100/roll. Only slightly exaggerating, apparently one is expected to bring their own roll with them to make it through the session. ( Either that, or a copy of The Guardian . . . )

I mean really? It's bad enough that defective merchandise is now the norm (thank chairman Mr. Xi) and that's become acceptable to the younger and less experienced generations. The only step further downhill one might go is the wipes having holds in them, here and there, from dirt on the pressure rollers.
