TP Debate

Did you know that an item as necessary and required as toilet paper has quite a few debates surrounding it? The other day, one of my coworkers asked if I was a folder or a crumpler when it comes to using toilet paper. Here is an interesting survey that deals with this whole debate. Take it and see where you toilet paper use preference lies. Apparently I am part of the minority when it comes to toilet paper usage.

Another life long debate is which way to put the roll on the dispenser. I was always taught to place the roll with the loose end coming over the top, but I know that some people prefer to have the loose end come from the bottom.

Of course, another interesting topic is who changes the toilet paper roll. In our house, I am the one who changes the toilet paper. I usually do not even let the roll run out before I change it. That way I do not have to worry about running out of toilet paper.

Who knew that a simple piece of paper could create so much discussion?

That link reminds me of a great column that OSC did a few years back about toilet paper: ( - you have to scroll down past the movie review to get to his toilet paper rant). It was hilarious, and I really even enjoy re-reading it sometimes.
