Like Dopey, I'd like to have a biddet too -- i think it's spelled that way
but, after that I'd still like to wipe
using both makes you feel cleaner
so, my vote is you roll it from the

FRONT

sorry Kamla, I have to agree with the others

Serenity you crack me up! Not only calamity if it's in the closet, but that dreadful feeling when that "new" roll, that's now all wet from God knows what, is the LAST ROLL in the house.

Ahhh...now THIS is my kind of discussion! I'd have to say behind, for a couple of reasons...one, that's just always the way we've done it while I was growing up...two, don't 'cha think it's a bit disorienting when it's in the front?? Anywho...that's my vote...BEHIND...once again, thank you for this refreshing and ever-so-important discussion!! I love it!!

do I believe we'd be better off apart?
can I see my world without you in it?
baby, not for a single minute...

I prefer to just unroll the whole roll of toilet paper......seperate each individual piece and stack them up. That way I don't have to worry about front or back......

While being in the minority does not make me wrong these are the results of a survey I found at http://www.toiletpaperworld.com/tpw/encyclopedia/navigation/surveys.htm along with lots of other information on the subject of TP and other paper related issues.

68% like to hang toilet paper with the first sheet going over the roll, while 25% prefer to hang the first sheet under the roll.

ps..also found this... ( i ain't gonna try it...lol)

Unrolling Toilet Paper

There's more than one way to get toilet paper off the roll.

Materials:
roll of toilet paper
leaf blower
dowel rod, about two feet long

Instructions:

Thread the dowel rod through the toilet paper roll. Unroll about two feet of toilet paper, letting it hang down.

Have one person hold the dowel horizontally, with the hanging paper facing away from the leaf blower.

A second person should hold the leaf blower. Turn on the leaf blower, directing the stream of air just over the top surface of the roll. What happens?

When the leaf blower is turned on, what happens to the pressure above the roll of toilet paper?


Why does the paper unroll?

Well we put it in BACK
just because we have
a puppy and he likes to
make a mess of things
by pulling the roll
all throughout the

This is the reply i received from an email inquiry on the subject ........

Thank you for your issue.

Many hotels install the toilet paper to pay out from over the top in
order to make a nice pointed triangle on the end sheet. This points out to
the user that someone cleaned the bathroom and paid attention to the 'finer'
details. However, others feel that in a public facility it is best to
install to pay out from underneath. In this way the dispensing and tearing
is more controlled and therefore less people will touch the roll of paper,
therefore less cross contamination. Also, keeping the paper closer to the
wall by dispensing from underneath provides a 'cleaner less intrusive'
environment, especially in close quarters. Some dispensers have a top cover
that helps the user pull and tear the paper. In this case the roll should be
dispensed from the top allowing the user to 'pull up' on the paper an tear
it easily. So, it depends on the dispenser, the location and the facility.
However, the simple concern about the installation of the roll may have a
deeper meaning and may be indicative of a different issue in the personality
of the user. This question remains one of the most frequently asked.

I hope this helps. Feel free to call again.
