Man Who Ran Out of Toilet Paper Rescued by Twitter

I've been skeptical of the utility of Twitter, but one man in Japan found it to be essential at a very unfortunate moment. He was in the restroom of an electronics store in Tokyo when he ran out of toilet paper. So he whipped out his phone and sent this tweet:

Urgent request, toilet paper in Akihabara Yodobashi Camera 3rd floor men's restroom

Twenty minutes later, help arrived. Thank you, Internet.

BTW, the proper solution to this (assuming no one else is in the bathroom is to either:

Waddle over the the sink and make a bidet out of it


Sacrifice a sock

Every few years my buddy, or myself, will encounter a situation like this. The phrase is so well ingrained in our vernacular that all he has to say is, "Dude, out riding my bike the other day, ended up sacrificing a sock" and i know exactly what transpired. Whether or not knowing such details in any way enhances my life is debatable.
