Science of the Secondary: Toilet Paper


“The life of toilet paper is fundamentally short-lived; smeared with shit and left to disintegrate in smelly water, it is found in almost every toilet as a sign of hygienic assurance. Even though its absence is a major cause of panic amongst toilet users, the toilet roll remains a lowly object and ever so often, a cause for embarrassment or awkward giggles when encountered or merely mentioned. Considering how excreting faeces is an everyday affair for all, such sentiments towards a roll of tissue destined to keep one’s butt hygiene in order seems rather immature…”
