Ya know, I was wondering idly a few days ago about toilet paper and tissue paper. I blow my nose a lot. I have low-grade, constant allergies to... (heh)... cats (3), dust (endless), and other things.
My last b/f accused me of being addicted to nose-blowing.
We were in his truck at the time, in traffic, and I remember turning to gape at him in astonishment.
"You think I'm addicted?"
I made him back down on that claim... make no mistake.
Oh yeah, I love dust. I love sneezing, dude. I love spending $50 a month on paper products with which to evacuate excess mucus.
So much fun.
So, with Kleenex in mind, I asked one of my more environmentally aware neighbours if it is better to flush snot rags down the toilet or put them into garbage for burial.
He told me burial is better because the bacteria created by the warmth generated in landfill breaks down paper (and, more recently, the thinner recycled grocery store bags) more quickly, rather than the process in water, which is slower.
So there you go.
Bury those tissues.
