The most interesting thing I learnt today

The cardboard tubes in the middle of toilet rolls have serial numbers.

The two I spotted during housework this morning are 230304881542, and 230326280410.

What's going on?

  3. 2294405 here. Why are there more numbers on British loo rolls than Spanish loo rolls.

  4. How am I supposed to know that?? I'll ask around (if I feel like acquiring a reputation as some kind of weirdo bog-roll sniffer). That last one should've read 441189502521 BTW.
