When you come unexpectedly to the end of a toilet roll, and need a few extra pieces, Four More Sheets will be your saviour. All you need do is take the empty tube off its holder, and on the inside layer of the cardboard find the neatly rolled extra sheets of paper.

       Tearing apart the toilet roll tube has the same effect, as it generally is constructed from two-ply cardboard. So the extra sheets are already there, in a sense.

       Will lead to unexpectedly encountering rolls that are depleted of the 4MS, or never had them to begin with. Crushed expectations trump unexpected bliss.

       Maybe for depressives, they do. Could the cardboard tube just be really small and all the roll holders be redesigned?

       Yeah, but they could be inside the tiny roll. I wasn't suggesting sacrificing that feature, well maybe i was but i shouldn't've, so sorry, you're right, but thin tube with four extra sheets inside it, just wide enough to admit the sheets themselves and the holder, which is now a wire.

       Blow the expense, I'll make it 5
