The 1-minute revelation

Just like the strategy of some toothpaste makers who make the holes where the toothpaste comes out from slightly bigger than normal so that people use up their tube faster, the makers of the toilet roll we use in the office have made each square piece slightly longer so that they can provide the same sized toilet roll, but which will be finished faster because there are less square pieces.

Guess where I got this revelation.
