Communist China is having a string of toilet paper thefts. Ergo they must ration toilet paper. And are using facial recognition software. Toilet paper. Facial recognition software. Let that soak in before wiping.
Thats because people have been taking so much toilet paper that the UNESCO World Heritage Site operators decided enough was enough, and installed facial recognition dispensers at its toilets, local reports said.
If the same user is detected within nine minutes, the dispenser will deny them a second feed of paper.
Obviously, anyone who has eaten Chinese food before can see how this may be problematic.
In the short time its been up, the system has already cut down usage to a fraction, temple staff said. According to the Beijing Evening News, each washroom average four rolls of toilet paper, compared to 20 rolls before.
In America, where capitalism runs wild and free, we get to use all the toilet paper our little hearts desire. And more importantly, need. Especially if youve eaten at Taco Bell or In n Out Burger. In America, we havent any politicians saying Free toilet paper for all! or TP is a human right! because we have abundant supplies of our favorite posterior wipes. For whenever the nature bell tolls. Hey, ho, hey, ho, give me TP I have to go!

Lots of Chinese steal toilet paper from public bathrooms
Our family did the same thing.
WHy is TP (and paper towels and kleenex) so expensive?
When I worked there 40 years ago, nobody used bathrooms at all. The world was your bathroom. Didn’t matter whether you were in the city, in a country village, in the fields, on the train, by the tracks, or on a boat.
I guess they’ve come a long ways.
This story reminds me of “We can put a man on the moon, but we can’t XYX.” Wouldn’t it be far simpler to get more TP than resort to facial recognition? Or, do like they used to do in Europe — post a guard at every potty.
From the expression on your face, the computer can tell how bad you have to go.
So if you want some toilet paper, let’s see you ham it up.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to have butt recognition instead?
I mean, what if a guy came in wearing a SpongeBob mask?
Had Ma Bo Tofu for lunch. Where’s the TP?
Shouldn’t we use this in voting booth?
How will that work considering all Chinese look alike?
I’m going to China in a couple of weeks. Outside of hotels they recommended you bring your own TP.
