March 2020: The CORONA Issue

 

A note from the author:
I just got off the phone with my military friend in DC who just got out of a classified briefing at The Pentagon about coronavirus. He says that in 48 to 96 hours The President will evoke what is known as the Stafford act ordering a mandatory quarantine for the United States of America and its citizens for two weeks or more because of corona and also will be doing martial law FYI. Stock up on food and essentials for two weeks or more as well as the little luxuries that bring you joy and happiness in life, you cannot get enough of those. Pls forward this message so that everyone sees it and I will tell my military friend thank you for the life saving information. There is light in the darkness God bless

Donations:

It has been quite difficult for us here at Jake & Sam Email Bomb to work remotely. We now work from home and conduct business meetings over Zoom. We have also lost copious amounts of money due to stocks, so if you are able to donate, please Venmo donations to @JakeSchick and @drsamharris

 

Thank you. We have not fired any employees although Sam Harris is on thin ice!


 

Blast from the Past:

Here’s a look at all the times Jake & Sam Email Bomb has had to close down due to external pressures:

 
  • The Vietnam War (1955-1975)

  • The Northridge Earthquake (1994)

  • The 9/11 Attacks (2001)

  • Jake Schick’s 19th birthday (2017)

 

Despite the horrors of coronavirus, we currently still plan to remain in business.


 


 

What to do:

We have received many reader emails this month asking how to keep busy during these boring times. People keep writing to us saying things like “social media is overwhelming, how do I get off my phone?” Our suggestion is to put your stupid phone away and go fly a kite.

Wedding Updates:

As many of you may know, Jake & Sam often spend their spare time officiating weddings together. Unfortunately, in this climate, many weddings will have to be postponed or cancelled (Martha and John, you weren’t ready for marriage anyways). We did officiate a wedding last week, but we made sure the bride and groom (Congratulations Doug and Tricia Martin) stayed at least 6 feet apart at all times. Doug can kiss the bride after 14 days of quarantine. 

500 people were invited to the wedding, but only 8 attended. Thus, we have decided to cancel all future weddings. Here are all the weddings we have chosen to cancel:

 

William Fatso & Julia Deprived

John Anderson & Seline

Andrew Jackson & Susan Anthony

William Fo & Beatriz Sanchez

Athur Marley & Petunia DeStefano

Emilio Hank & Emilie Hank

George Dunn & Elizabeth Duker

Todd Sweeny & Sweeny Todd



 

Note: We will continue to assist with divorces. 

If you Venmo us, we will also be giving 10% of donations to flower girls that have been put out of business.

Emily Blunt: 'It's about human beings and how they're affected by a crisis'

From THE GUARDIAN 

Staff writers Jake Schick & Sam Harris sit down with Emily Blunt

 

Emily Blunt: ‘It’s about how far you’d go to protect your children. It turns out, you’d go a really long way.’ Photograph: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP

Emily Blunt and her husband, John Krasinski, devised a rigorous self-care regime when the pair were making A Quiet Place, 2017’s harrowing self-isolation horror hit. “I always say that Macallan 12 sponsored A Quiet Place,” says Blunt. “John and I would just go home and drink a lot of whisky every night. And that sort of continued on A Quiet Place 2.”

You, too, might need a tumbler of scotch while watching the film. Blunt describes it as a “a movie as scary as if coronavirus was actually real,” which raised some questions. We decided to stand up for what we believed in for the first time in our lives.  

“What do you mean by coronavirus not being real?” asks Schick with a flirtatious smile. He used to have a thing with Blunt before Krasinski came into the picture. 

 “It’s fake. Well...I just don’t get it. To be honest, I don’t really believe in diseases,” says Blunt. Harris spit out his sparkling water. 

Now the vibes in the room shifted. There was a weird energy. Schick was having trouble putting his bottled up feelings for Blunt away, and Harris was having trouble breathing. Blunt was spread eagle. Try to imagine giving birth in such a nightmare landscape and you have the plot of A Quiet Place. Take the newborn out into the world, to face fresh dangers, and you have A Quiet Place Part 2.

“At its core, the film is about motherhood, it’s about parenthood, it’s about how far you’d go to protect your children,” Blunt says. “It turns out you’d go a really long way.”

Schick wants to tell her he misses her, but he stays professional. “I’m no longer interested in your whatever movie,” says Schick with a voice crack. “I’m interested in how you do not believe in disease.” Harris’ coughing grows louder. “I need a scotch,” Harris says.

Scotch is not being served in the New York hotel suite where we meet. Instead, there’s abstemious pots of earl grey and three sorry biscuits. Blunt contemplates a trio of jugs with a mix of curiosity and suspicion. “So many different milks here,” she says. “I think that’s the one I want. This is real milk, not fake,” she says approvingly, offering it over. “The idea of oat milk probably makes you feel a bit sick.”

Blunt seemed oblivious to the needs of Sam as well as deaf to the questions of Schick. And for the record, we love oat milk. But Blunt has a warm presence. It’s easy to see why she was such tip-top casting for Mary Poppins, though her daughters, Hazel, five, and Violet, three, prefer the 1964 original. We just wish she was in Marriage Story instead of Scar Jo. 

“WHY DID YOU CALL THE CORONAVIRUS FAKE?” asks Schick.

“If the first movie is about parenthood, I think that the second one is very much about that idea of a fractured sense of community,” says Blunt. “It’s really diving into human beings and how they’re affected by a crisis, and who’s resilient enough to withstand this kind of thing and still extend your hand to ---

“HEY.” Harris is back on his feet. “Explain yourself, please.”

 

“I’m tired. I’ve had a long day,” says Blunt. “I just don’t care anymore. I’m rich and don’t have to deal with these problems. So they’re fake to me. And yeah, I made a movie about a world crisis, and it’s honestly great that this is what’s happening in the real world. More people will watch my movie.”

Being a couple on screen has inevitably raised the profile of Blunt and Krasinski’s real marriage, but Blunt seems unwilling to have a three way. She is not on social media, has no plans to be and ferociously guards the separation between her public and private lives. She and Krasinski named their first daughter Hazel after the Nick Drake song Hazey Jane, she says, but asked if she can recall the first time they listened to it, she replies – with a compensating smile – “I do and I’m not going to share it.” Living in Brooklyn helps. “No one bothers us, we walk around, we don’t have a car, it’s very manageable,” she says. “I don’t know many other neighbourhoods where we would find it as easy.”

Blunt continued to ramble about her love life that no one asked her about, and eventually Schick and Harris decided to leave. 

 

A Quiet Place 2 will be released later this year

This article was amended on 13 March 2020 because Nick Drake’s song Hazey Jane, was misnamed Hazy Jane. This has been corrected.


 

Latest on Coronavirus:

In case you forgot there is a pandemic, here are some live updates. There is currently 1 confirmed case in Vatican City. Sources are unsure of who it is, but Jake & Sam are confident it is the pope.



Jake’s Trip To Botanical Gardens:

Jake cancelled his plans one Monday morning to go visit the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Turns out, all botanical gardens in New York are closed on Mondays. EXCEPT for the Narrows Botanical Gardens. The reason why is that it’s pathetic. It would be disappointing even if it was called “Narrows Shitty Park.” One Google user reviewed the “gardens” saying “The small fish pond is gone :( and there isn’t much flower(s) scenery.” There are no flowers. How can there be botanical gardens without flowers? Another reviewer on Google wrote “Everytime I come here there's trash laying about.” Then why do you continue to come back?

 

The people who go there also aren’t the best. Here is a notable 1-star review:

 Satisfied for what it is

Reviewed in the United States on September 3, 2019

Size: 161#92 with Standing feet Verified Purchase

Be in shape as this doll is heavy. It feels great to use, does not have any sort of chemical smell. The skin feels soft and fun to feel. Around 5'2 in height and the ass is quite nice and large. My only critic is that the holes are not lined up to that of a real woman, so it could be awkward in some positions for you. Overall though, im happy.

A roll of toilet paper

Toilet paper and toilet paper holder

Toilet paper, sometimes called toilet roll or toilet tissue in Britain, is a tissue paper product primarily used to clean the anus and surrounding area of feces after defecation, and to clean the vulva and perineum of urine after urination or other bodily fluid releases. It also acts as a layer of protection for the hands during these processes. It is usually supplied as a long strip of perforated paper wrapped around a paperboard core for storage in a dispenser near a toilet. Most modern toilet paper in the developed world is designed to decompose in septic tanks, whereas some other bathroom and facial tissues are not. Toilet paper comes in various numbers of plies (layers of thickness), from one- to six-ply, with more back-to-back plies providing greater strength and absorbency.

The use of paper for hygiene has been recorded in China in the 6th century AD, with specifically manufactured toilet paper being mass-produced in the 14th century. Modern commercial toilet paper originated in the 19th century, with a patent for roll-based dispensers being made in 1883.

 

History

Anal cleansing instruments known as chūgi from the Nara period (710 to 784) in Japan. The modern rolls in the background are for size comparison.

Although paper had been known as a wrapping and padding material in China since the 2nd century BC, the first documented use of toilet paper in human history dates back to the 6th century AD, in early medieval China. In 589 AD the scholar-official Yan Zhitui (531–591) wrote about the use of toilet paper:

Paper on which there are quotations or commentaries from the Five Classics or the names of sages, I dare not use for toilet purposes.

During the later Tang dynasty (618–907 AD), an Arab traveller to China in the year 851 AD remarked:

...they [the Chinese] do not wash themselves with water when they have done their necessities; but they only wipe themselves with paper.

During the early 14th century, it was recorded that in what is now Zhejiang province alone, ten million packages of 1,000 to 10,000 sheets of toilet paper were manufactured annually. During the Ming dynasty (1368–1644 AD), it was recorded in 1393 that an annual supply of 720,000 sheets of toilet paper (approximately 2 by 3 ft (60 by 90 cm)) were produced for the general use of the imperial court at the capital of Nanjing. From the records of the Imperial Bureau of Supplies of that same year, it was also recorded that for the Hongwu Emperor's imperial family alone, there were 15,000 sheets of special soft-fabric toilet paper made, and each sheet of toilet paper was perfumed.

Elsewhere, wealthy people wiped themselves with wool, lace or hemp, while less wealthy people used their hand when defecating into rivers, or cleaned themselves with various materials such as rags, wood shavings, leaves, grass, hay, stones, sand, moss, water, snow, ferns, plant husks, fruit skins, seashells, or corncobs, depending upon the country and weather conditions or social customs. In Ancient Rome, a sponge on a stick was commonly used, and, after use, placed back in a pail of vinegar. Several talmudic sources indicating ancient Jewish practice refer to the use of small pebbles, often carried in a special bag, and also to the use of dry grass and of the smooth edges of broken pottery jugs (e.g., Shabbat 81a, 82a, Yevamot 59b). These are all cited in the classic Biblical and Talmudic Medicine by the German physician Julius Preuss (Eng. trans. Sanhedrin Press, 1978).

A print by William Hogarth entitled A Just View of the British Stage from 1724 depicting Robert Wilks, Colley Cibber, and Barton Booth rehearsing a pantomime play with puppets enacting a prison break down a privy. The "play" is composed of nothing but toilet paper, and the scripts for Hamlet, inter al., are toilet paper.

A 1792 French Revolutionary caricature, depicting the French population using the Monarchist Brunswick Manifesto as toilet paper.

The 16th-century French satirical writer François Rabelais, in Chapter XIII of Book 1 of his novel sequence Gargantua and Pantagruel, has his character Gargantua investigate a great number of ways of cleansing oneself after defecating. Gargantua dismisses the use of paper as ineffective, rhyming that: "Who his foul tail with paper wipes, Shall at his ballocks leave some chips." (Sir Thomas Urquhart's 1653 English translation). He concludes that "the neck of a goose, that is well downed" provides an optimum cleansing medium.

The rise of publishing by the eighteenth century led to the use of newspapers and cheap editions of popular books for cleansing. Lord Chesterfield, in a letter to his son in 1747, told of a man who purchased a common edition of Horace, of which he tore off gradually a couple of pages, carried them with him to that necessary place, read them first, and then sent them down as a sacrifice to Cloacina; thus was so much time fairly gained.

In many parts of the world, especially where toilet paper or the necessary plumbing for disposal may be unavailable or unaffordable, toilet paper is not used. Also, in many parts of the world people consider using water a much cleaner and more sanitary practice than using paper. Cleansing is then performed with other methods or materials, such as water, for example using a bidet, a lota, rags, sand, leaves (including seaweed), corn cobs, animal furs, sticks or hands; afterwards, hands are washed with water and possibly soap.

As a commodity

"Le Troubadour" (French)—1960s package of toilet paper

Joseph Gayetty is widely credited with being the inventor of modern commercially available toilet paper in the United States. Gayetty's paper, first introduced in 1857, was available as late as the 1920s. Gayetty's Medicated Paper was sold in packages of flat sheets, watermarked with the inventor's name. Original advertisements for the product used the tagline "The greatest necessity of the age! Gayetty's medicated paper for the water-closet."

Seth Wheeler of Albany, New York, obtained the earliest United States patents for toilet paper and dispensers, the types of which eventually were in common use in that country, in 1883.

The manufacturing of this product had a long period of refinement, considering that as late as the 1930s, a selling point of the Northern Tissue company was that their toilet paper was "splinter free".

Moist toilet paper, called wet wipes, was first introduced in the United Kingdom by Andrex in the 1990s. It has been promoted as being a better method of cleaning than dry toilet paper after defecation, and may be useful for women during menstruation. It was promoted as a flushable product but it has been implicated in the creation of fatbergs; by 2016 some municipalities had begun education campaigns advising people not to flush used wet wipes.

More than seven billion rolls of toilet paper are sold yearly in the United States. Americans use an average of 23.6 rolls per capita per year.

During the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, toilet paper shortages were reported in March 2020 in a number of countries due to excessive hoarding and panic buying.

Description

Toilet paper is available in several types of paper, a variety of patterns, decorations, and textures, and it may be moistened or perfumed, although fragrances sometimes cause problems for users who are allergic to perfumes. The average measures of a modern roll of toilet paper is c. 10 cm (3 15/16 in.) wide, and 12 cm (4 23/32 in.) in diameter, and weighs about 227 grams (8 oz.). An alternative method of packing the sheets uses interleaved sheets in boxes, or in bulk for use in dispensers. "Hard" single-ply paper has been used as well as soft multi-ply.

Size

Manufactured toilet paper sheet in the United States was sized 4.5 in (11 cm) × 4 in (10 cm). Since 1999 the size of a sheet has been shrinking; Kimberly-Clark reduced the length of a sheet to 4.1 in (10 cm). Scott, in 2006, reduced the length of their product to 3.7 in (9.4 cm). The width of sheets was later reduced giving a general sheet size of 3.7 in (9.4 cm) long and 4.1 in (10 cm) wide. Larger sizes remain available.

Materials

Toilet paper products vary greatly in the distinguishing technical factors, such as size, weight, roughness, softness, chemical residues, "finger-breakthrough" resistance, water-absorption, etc. The larger companies have very detailed, scientific market surveys to determine which marketing sectors require or demand which of the many technical qualities. Modern toilet paper may have a light coating of aloe or lotion or wax worked into the paper to reduce roughness.

Quality is usually determined by the number of plies (stacked sheets), coarseness, and durability. Low grade institutional toilet paper is typically of the lowest grade of paper, has only one or two plies, is very coarse and sometimes contains small amounts of embedded unbleached/unpulped paper. Mid-grade two ply is somewhat textured to provide some softness and is somewhat stronger. Premium toilet paper may have lotion and wax and has two to four plies of very finely pulped paper. If it is marketed as "luxury", it may be quilted or rippled (embossed), perfumed, colored or patterned, medicated (with anti-bacterial chemicals), or treated with aloe or other perfumes.

In order to advance decomposition of the paper in septic tanks or drainage, the paper used has shorter fibres than facial tissue or writing paper. The manufacturer tries to reach an optimal balance between rapid decomposition (which requires shorter fibres) and sturdiness (which requires longer fibres). Compaction of toilet paper in drain lines, such as in a clog, prevents fibre dispersion and largely halts the breakdown process.

A German quip says that the toilet paper of Nazi Germany was so rough and scratchy that it was almost unusable, so many people used old issues of the Völkischer Beobachter instead, because the paper was softer.

Color and design

Colored toilet paper in colors such as pink, lavender, light blue, light green, purple, green, and light yellow (so that one could choose a color of toilet paper that matched or complemented the color of one's bathroom) was commonly sold in the United States from the 1960s. Up until 2004, Scott was one of the last remaining U.S. manufacturers to still produce toilet paper in beige, blue, and pink. However, the company has since cut production of colored paper altogether.

Today, in the United States, plain unpatterned colored toilet paper has been mostly replaced by patterned toilet paper, normally white, with embossed decorative patterns or designs in various colors and different sizes depending on the brand. Colored toilet paper remains commonly available in some European countries.

Installation

Toilet paper is also used for spreading on seat before sitting

Dispensers

Main article: Toilet roll holder

A toilet roll holder, also known as a toilet paper dispenser, is an item that holds a roll of toilet paper. There are at least seven types of holders:

  1. A horizontal piece of wire mounted on a hinge, hanging from a door or wall.

  2. A horizontal axle recessed in the wall.

  3. A vertical axle recessed in the wall

  4. A horizontal axle mounted on a freestanding frame.

  5. A freestanding vertical pole on a base.

  6. A wall mounted dispensing unit, usually containing more than one roll. This is used in the commercial / away-from-home marketplace.

  7. A wall mounted dispensing unit with tissue interfolded in a "S" type leave so the user can extract the tissue one sheet at a time.

Some commercial or institutional toilet paper is wrapped around a cylinder to many times the thickness of a standard toilet paper roll.

Orientation

Main article: Toilet paper orientation

There are two choices of orientation when using a holder with a horizontal axle parallel to the wall: the toilet paper may hang over or under the roll. The choice is largely a matter of personal preference, dictated by habit. In surveys of American consumers and of bath and kitchen specialists, 60-70% of respondents prefer over.

Decoration

Main article: Hotel toilet paper folding

Toilegami refers to toilet paper origami. Like table napkins, some fancy Japanese hotels fold the first squares of toilet paper on its dispenser to be presented in a fashionable way.

Recreational use

Main article: Toilet papering

In the United States, toilet paper has been the primary tool in a prank known as "TP-ing" (pronounced "teepeeing"). TP-ing, or "toilet papering", is often favored by adolescents and is the act of throwing rolls of toilet paper over cars, trees, houses and gardens, causing the toilet paper to unfurl and cover the property, creating an inconvenient mess.

Children and cats have taken to unrolling an entire roll of toilet paper by spinning it until it completely unravels on the floor, or as a game by children wadding up one end, putting it in the toilet bowl without tearing it and then using the flushing of the toilet to pull new paper into the toilet, with the objective of flushing the entire roll down the toilet section at a time without the toilet paper breaking. Special toilet paper insert holders with an oblong shape were invented to prevent continuous unrolling without tearing to discourage this practice.

Toilet paper pranks include musical toilet paper holders and inserts that are activated by the unrolling of the toilet paper and will loudly play an embarrassing song calling attention to the person defecating.

Other gags include custom toilet paper printed with jokes, stories or politician's images.

Mechanics

Alexander Balankin and coauthors have studied the behavior of toilet paper under tensile stress and during wetting and burning.

Toilet paper has been used in physics education to demonstrate the concepts of torque, moment of inertia, and angular momentum; and the conservation of momentum and energy.

Environmental considerations

Further information: Environmental impact of paper

One tree produces about 200 rolls (100 pounds (45 kg)) of toilet paper and about 83 million rolls are produced per day. Global toilet paper production consumes 27,000 trees daily.

More than seven billion rolls of toilet paper are sold yearly in the United States alone. Americans use an average of 23.6 rolls per capita a year. The average American uses 50 pounds (23 kg) of tissue paper per year which is 50% more than the average of other Western countries or Japan. The higher use in the United States may be explained by the fact that in other countries, people use bidets or spray hoses to clean themselves. Millions of trees are harvested in North and South America leaving ecological footprint concerns. Citizens of many Western countries sometimes use toilet paper for industrial purposes such as oil filters, which may distort the use statistics.

As of 2009, between 22% and 48% of the toilet paper used in the United States comes from tree farms in the U.S. and South America, with the rest mostly coming from old, second growth forests, and some from virgin forests.

Solutions

Toilet paper of many brands is now made from recycled paper. However, paper such as newspaper is recycled, despite it containing BPA, an endocrine disruptor. Many others sell toilet paper crafted out of bagasse, a byproduct of sugarcane.
