Toilet Paper Debate


Another important debate as brought up by my dad. He's a self-declared expert on toilet paper positioning. Do you put the paper on the roll so that it rolls off from over or rolls off from under? Thanks for brining this important issue to the forefront, dad.

The way I see it. The printed paper tells us that it should come up over the top so we can see the pretty print on the tail that hangs down. Agreed?

The way I see it ... "over at all times." Miss Manners might say plain paper can go under, but here at burlyfamily.blogspot.com we go "over" with the paper "at all times"

I have to agree...I prefer over...and will switch the underpaper if its put in wrong!

Over. End of story. There Is No Other Way.

Have you ever tried to find the end of a roll place "under" when it has retracted?

I seem to remember Ann Landers taking this on years ago. She actually got a letter from a physicist who proved that the paper unrolls with less resistance when over!

I just don't care - but since we have frequent guests the toilet paper in our house tends to be over vs. under with the end folded(like the hotels do) after the bathroom has been 'freshened'.

Who wants to look at a gnarled piece of toilet paper? That's what you get when you go for the over. Sure it's more functional, but the under is more pleasing to the eye.

I like the under. It promotes a quality bathroom experience.
