Unintended Consequences

Another example of the Law of Unintended Consequences can be found in this morning's Metro.

Paper recycling and eco-friendly paperless offices, apparently, have grown to such a significant proportion that high-grade office paper waste is hard to obtain. This means that toilet paper manufacturers cannot get enough pulp of sufficient quality to produce soft toilet tissue.

Which means that the next time you're on the throne and wondering why the bog roll is the hard and shiny type favoured in schools everywhere, spare a thought for the fact that it's your own fault for not using enough office paper.

I shudder to think what we'll have to use if iPads and the like really take off...
