    i'm an over, my wife is an under. when she hangs it, i feel compelled to change it.

    only slightly off topic:

    if you ate toilet paper, would your ass wipe itself? just wondering.

    The TOP no question! How the heck do you easily tear the paper when it comes from the underneath without having it all unroll on you? The top! The top!

    THE TOP! for obvious reasons. If someone has it to the bottom I'll change it.

    Paul, need I remind you of the Simpsons episode when Bart and Lisa get taken away by social services? If I recall correctly, one of the complaints the social worker wrote down was, "toilet paper hung in overhand fashion." You use it to whipe your bottom, so it should come out of the bottom[​IMG]

    Top for me all the way. I actually go around all the bathrooms in the house and switch it of someone screws up and does it underhanded. Hell I've even tried breaking into the dispensers at school so that I could switch the TP to my way.

    I go with underhand...it just looks neater, and honestly, it's not that hard to roll it and find the end if it gets lost.
    BTW, what is the ratio to those who sit and wipe to those who stand and wipe? I've always sat and until I read Jeff Kleist's post, I assumed everyone else did as well. Who knew? Dammit, I always miss the great classes in school.

    You people wipe with the toilet paper? I usually just blow my nose and jump in the tub.

    Who needs paper?
    I just get off the throne, walk in to the living room, sit my ass on the carpet and drag myself forward with my two front paws [​IMG]

    This thread cries for answer to the other big question:

    do you take care of your business with the TP from the back or front? Or is that question a thread killer?

    over the top. the toilet roll holders at home have a metal "lid" or "flap" that lies on the roll, if the toilet roll is put in to hang under, when pulling paper the direction of the roll will cause paper to drag "against" the edge of the flap, causing paper "fluff" (if you can call it that) to get scraped off. and it's more difficult to pull paper out. and it causes the flap to rattle.
    sheesh, this is a really really really weird discussion topic... [​IMG]
