Möbius toiletpaper

Endless use...

If I understand correctly, the surface of a Möbius ring is mathematically speaking endless? Well, then. Take any length of toiletpaper, fashion a Möbius ring out of it and hey presto! Mathematical thriftyness galore! Enjoy!

       I don't think you understand correctly. It is endless in the same way as a piece of string is endless once you have tied the ends together.

       mind you it would certainly confuse the puppy.

       You can't tie a puppy's ends together. That would be cruel.

       This is a revolting idea.

       Yes, puppies are so much softer. Plus, their mom licks them clean afterwards anyways.

       Better yet, after using your mobius strip of toilet paper, cut it down the middle with a pair of scissors and voila! you now have a ring twice as big and you can continue wiping.

       [Phundug] understands [coprocephalous] doesn't.

       I'm still stuck on this mental image of a mobius puppy that I keep getting. That's just odd... I'll have to get back to you.

       That's one sick puppy.
