So 'snopes' is more useful than the 'Virtual Toilet Paper Museum'. That is good to know.

Snopes checks out unbelievable tales, scams and urban legends and debunks (or confirms) them. Slightly less useful is the 100-strong webring of Unusual Museums of the Internet. These include the Virtual Toilet Paper Museum, the Old Calculators Web Museum and Signalfan's museum of traffic control signals.

Indeed, Snopes is far more useful than "virtual toilet paper!"

I'll have to look at that site, though. Even before I studied anthropology, I did a survey of the toilet paper of various nations by collecting, or asking friends who travelled, to bring me a few pieces of the tp of different destinations.

I personally collected some from the UK, embossed, "Property of the Queen," some from France that was like wax paper, and some form Spain that was like crepe paper. Got a report via postcard reporting on the tp in Japan, and someone brought me some from Israel. I smell a graduate paper in the works...
