Walmart won, the TP sales :)

"Toilet paper is rolling off Walmart’s shelves so fast that the retailer sold enough in the last five days to give every American one roll, CEO Doug McMillon said Friday."

"Sales in the US spiked 845 percent on March 11 and 12 after climbing 51 percent in the preceding two weeks, according to NCSolutions figures reported by the Associated Press."

It is impressive how much shit people give about shitting. Every single crisis and toilet paper is the first thing vanishing from stores. Like, you can do a lot of stuff if your toilet paper is over, but without food and water it is much worse.

Toilet paper companies aren’t the winner though. Toiler paper sales will plummet because everyone now has a year’s supply worth of toilet paper.

Not if they fire everyone and keep production locked for 1 year and them resume next year =p

Not really. I am one and more people have showed up at my house this week than in a regular month. I stocked up early to avoid going shopping now, yet people insist on helping us out by bringing stuff over. Can't really say no lol, plus the kids like fresh muffins and Easter crap. Yet then my brother in law thinks it's nice to order us pizza (kids love it of course), screws up the online payment, so I have to pay cash at the door for pizza I didn't want, at 2:30 in the afternoon lol. The risk of contamination are very low with pizza delivery, but not zero for something as non essential as pizza for a snack.

My kids are always home now, never a moment alone anymore. When I go to the trails for a run by myself I have to constantly change routes to avoid people. Normally I don't see anyone there, yet since everything else is currently closed it has gotten busy at my regular spots. Teenagers are the worst, screw social distancing, they hang out together, building campfires, leaving beer cans around and tear up the trails with quad bikes.

I want my quiet isolated life back!

It is hard to be isolated during isolation periods =p ... here the only social distancing people are practicing is not going to work, because they will stay on the street talking.

Biologists.



Surgical masks producers.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

It's not every single crisis.  I've been through a hurricane season every year of my life and have hunkered down for an approaching storm at least a dozen times.  I've seen water disappear.  I've seen fights at Home Depot over plywood.  I've seen the entire canned goods section decimated.  I've waited an hour in line to get gas.

I have never once seen toilet paper sold out before last month.  The panic buying for this thing has been uniquely stupid.

Different POV, in Brazil it is aways toilet paper for whatever reason.

Most workers in essential goods like food, sanitarian needs, etc
...

The gaming community got it more than pretty good with some great releases and in the case of Nintendo, record breaking sales in these harsh times.

Opportunistic capatalists looking at the stock market to invest while most stock rate are so low.

I feel like a winner. Everyone is staying home, so there are allot less marine rescues, road crash rescues, fires, vertical rescues and so on, able to catch up on my backlog!
