Russ - I used that "loo paper" when I traveled in England, and I agree that 
it probably would work great for bone marrow aspirates.  In fact, that is 
probably the ONLY thing it should be used for!  I was so taken aback by the 
quality (or lack of), that I brought a sheet home with me for my scrap book. 
  You people from the UK must have cornified bottoms!
