Ok Ok...
I'm being goofy here but I got into a discussion with some friends earlier about which way people prefer the toilet paper to come off of the roll.

I like it to come off the top of the roll...not the bottom.

There's just something wrong about it coming off the bottom to me.

Maybe it's because I can't accurately judge how many "squares" I'm taking.  (well I can...It's just more difficult...I actually have to look closely to count how many)

If it's from the top, then I'm more able to get an "instant...at a glance estimate" of the number of "squares" being withdrawn.

If I'm at someone else's house and I notice that it is coming off the bottom,  I'll actually take the 5 seconds to switch it around so it comes off the top.

Maybe I'm a conservative anal retentive bastard but for me to have it come off the bottom of the roll is UNTHINKABLE!

I MUST CHANGE IT!!

I read somewhere once that over 75% of Americans prefer it to come off the top...(Reader's Digest I think)

I've used friends' bathrooms and after I'm done they'll go in to use it and then come out after they're done and say to me...."You switched the toilet paper again didn't you!?"

Which do you prefer?

The paper MUST come off the top of the roll. It is written in the Bible.

As long as there is toilet paper I'm happy.  And I'm talking about good old American toilet paper-- Scott, Charmin, whatever, not the gawdawful British (European) crap that doubles as airmail paper.

Definitely the top. That way, the end hangs out from the wall, where it's easier to grab. I think it's also a little easier to pull that way, and it doesn't touch the wall.

Much better, all around.

All right I'll be seriouse I go for the bottom, because gravity pulls down on the end piece and you can find it easier. If it's on top it sort of blends in and it takes me like 30 seconds to find it by spinning it. Bottom for me.

Wrong you are wrong.The paper must come off the bottom never the top.What is wrong with you?Were you raised by wolfs?It is toilet paper off the top people like you that are bringing this country down.When you take it off the top it has more of a chance of ripping, when taken off the bottom the toilet paper rarley rips.
Don't you see the flaws in your ideology, it is absulutly f**king absured that you would do this.

For the record - Over the top

My main concern is when one is at the super market and you are purchasing TP (a.k.a. toilet paper) don't you ever wonder if it is enough the the amount of food you buy?
