DISCOVERY

On the 1st floor of my house, the toilet paper roll is much closer to the toilet, and it's under.
On the 2nd floor, it's farther away, and it's over.
I have a conflicting house. D:

Over. I agree with whoever said that being Under felt unnatural. (I think it was Vek)

No it has not. Newcomers must learn the way of the paper. Until that purpose has been fulfilled, you shall not lock this.

Threads like these don't need to be locked, they actually offer place for some interesting discussion, such as why would one have their toilet paper under and where did that habit come from?

I found this article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toilet_paper_orientation

* Over reduces the risk of accidentally brushing the wall or cabinet with one's knuckles, potentially transferring grime and germs.
* Over makes it easier to visually locate and to grasp the loose end.
* Over gives hotels, cruise ships, and homeowners with guest bathrooms the option to fold over the last sheet to show that the room has been cleaned. See hotel toilet-paper folding.
* Over is generally the intended direction of viewing for the manufacturer's branding, so patterned toilet paper looks better this way.

* Under provides a tidier appearance, in that the loose end can be more hidden from view.
* Under reduces the risk that a toddler or a house pet, such as a dog or cat, will completely unroll the toilet paper when batting at the roll.
* Under in a recreational vehicle may reduce unrolling during driving.

Also, 68% out of all people orient their toilet paper over as stated in a 1989 survey. That also appears to be the case in this poll.

The poll is still ignoring those who do neither, but have a vertical holder. Or simply place the roll on top of the cistern.

Thats some very semi-scientificy research there Shocked

Though I never think about it, I seem to have a tenancy to put it over. Not for any particular reason, i just seem to do it. Though Butters has exploited this. he has destroyed many many toilet rolls in his lifetime
