About 384 trees. This is how many trees are used to make the toilet paper rolls that one American uses within his or her lifetime. Here is the math:

"It takes 48 full grown trees to make roughly 500 rolls of toilet paper. So using that number it takes about 1/10th of an adult grown paper tree to produce 10 rolls of toilet paper. Every American in the United States, roughly 300+ million, uses at the very least 49 rolls of toilet paper a year. That is 5 trees a person." (from

I would say within arms reach of the toilet. preferably on the right side. No. If the toilet is near the corner of the room, then the wall that the toilet ISNT laying against is the place for the toilet paper roll. I prefer not to put a toilet paper roll across from the toilet. It annoys me.... i say why don't you put the toilet paper in the bathroom that's were it belongs anyway

How many rolls of toilet paper would it take to go around the world once?

One totally big-jumbo-oversized-out-of-this-world-humongous roll of toilet paper. If you want to be a "smart-ass" all it takes is one regular roll of toilet paper, taken around the world once. Since there has been a Russian space station which orbits the Earth with a human occupant (they use a kind of toilet paper) this has already been done. It would be a relatively easy thing to mail a package of toilet paper to select locations around the world and back to do it yourself, using stamps. If you wanted to really go the distance, and wrap the Earth's equator around a roll of toilet paper, it would require ~180 thousand jumbo rolls taped end to end. You would have to cross the ocean with it; I don't see any way of doing so. To wrap the Earth completely in toilet paper would require ~21 trillion such rolls. You would have to lay it out perfectly, and somehow cover the oceans without losing any toilet paper. You would basically have to pause time as this would take a person ~40 million years (1 roll per minute). I leave it to you to check my calculations. Earth: Radius = 6400 km Circumfrence = 4.0 x 10^4 km Surface Area = 5.1 x 10^8 km Jumbo Roll: width = 11 cm (1.1 x 10-4 km) length = .22 km area = 2.4 x 10-5 km 1 year = 5.3 x 10^5 minutes

What is the control in an experiment of a regular toilet paper to an enriched toilet paper?

Depending on how the experiment is set up, the control could be different. In this case, the control would most likely be the regular toilet paper since nothing new is added to it. The control in an experiment is the group that does not contain or relate to the independent variable (the thing you change). So if you are testing to see which is better - regular toilet paper or enriched toilet paper - the control would be the regular paper since nothing is special about it.

How long will you live after eating toilet paper for three years?

I doubt that after three years of eating nothing but toilet paper, you would even be alive. Toilet paper contains no calories, or vitamins, and therefore your body wouldn't get any food, and it would die. Even if you did manage to survive, then that toilet paper will have damaged your health terribly, and you may need multiple transplants or blood transfusions.
