if teotwawki comes there will be plenty of paper to use as toilet paper. paper money will be worthless. i was at costco today also and there was just a normal crowd. but did see lots of carts with toilet paper.

I will visit on Thu or Fri and stock up on my usual disenfenctant....vodka!

Back on topic... Warren Distribution oil is a very, very good oil.

Licensed Dexos 1 Gen 2 5W-30, same as local grocery store brand 5W-30 (Meijer) and Wal-Mart Supertech, all Warren Petroleum products. Even the 5 qt jugs are the same shape/design, just different colors and labeling.
The Meijer gas stations use the same base gas as Top Tier Costco (Brenner Transport), but the gas station attendant at Costco said the additive tanks make all the difference.

Yeah, um, this is false. Viruses still have a membrane...

Incidentally, I'm not saying hoarding things is wise or right, but that's fairly convulsively wrong...

Panic buying is what it is. Easy too create. Remember the mass hysteria over Coca Cola in Europe in 1999 where 30 million cans/bottles were thrown out. 100 people claimed they got sick after the first episode of 26 children complained of being sick after drinking Coca Cola. There wasn't anything except mass hysteria among children which can become panic in other manners. When things go out of control for people this kind of panic buying psychologically gives them a sense of being in control. One main reason why I don't care for crowds and almost always tend to go in the opposite direction from a crowd.

Sure laugh about hand sanitizer, but fools on here are stockpiling 200 or 400 quarts of motor oil which is even more deranged. Speaking of mass hysteria, only here the sickness appears day in, day out. O look everybody yesterday I cleaned out both stores in my town and bought 30 jugs of oil ( guy uploads a photo like we don’t know what oil looks like, or maybe irrational gluttony requires proof). As if that is something to brag about. Look I added 30 jugs to my stash.

Hand sanitizer may not touch or totally kill it all. . It needs to be very high alcohol content...

Even then.... Alcohol does not kill everything. . Ask someone with c diff...

I don't get the stocking up on TP thing.. last i checked, explosive diarrhea isn't a major issue with the coronavirus. crzy


I think people stock up on necessities like TP and other things in case they need to stay home for extended times and limit having to venture out.

Amazon has TP and will deliver to your door in the event you have to stay home. There is no rational reasons for the hoarding.
