Paper Questions

Does the loose end of the toilet paper hang over the top of the roll or underneath? (The wife and I tease each other about the "correct" way.)

Why do hotels fold the loose end into a triangle? (It does not help clean any better.)

Along the same lines ... Why don't women put the seat up when they are finished?

Don't use TP. Corncobs.

Two reds for effect, a white to check, more reds as necessary...

1) Cup your hands
2) Turn hands over (keep them cupped)
3) Get your cupped hands wet and start plunging

Tip - Close your mouth and eyes when you do this if you take this advice.

Peanut I have these fat little hands that don't seal very well your going to have to find another way like blowing on an upside down funnel with a hose hooked on it !!!

Now, as I understand it, women in general like their toilet paper and paper towels Over the top. While men perfer the underhanded approach. I suppose one could make a deal out of women being straight forward and above board in all things. Conversely, it could be said that men are devious and underhanded in their dealings.

Whatever the opinion is, it could be the ground work needed to lay cause for a divorce further down the road.....Hey, there has to be a reason,and, this is as good as any. If I were you, I'd just try to forget about it for a while.........................gfp

The manufactures of Tolet Paper did a test a long time ago using many familys on how to put the role on. What they found out was you use more paper with the loose end coming over the top! So that is why they did a push for how you install the role. Saw it on TV once along with a bunch of other Product test results. Mark H.

Are these the same paper manufactures that recently came out and said (after a survey of course) that on average people use 4 squares when they use TP?

Seems a bit scant to me.

RD - Makes Sense,    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:36:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
One up, one down, one for polishing, one for a spare in case of breakthrough ;)

Melanie    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:25:55       [Reply]  [No Email]
LMAO!!!!! Amen. I'd rather waste a square or two myself personally.....
Which reminds me of another thing. Anybody here know what a FUD is? :)

toolman    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:28:23       [Reply]  [No Email]

Melanie    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:31:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
I found out about this from one of my friends' moms... she's a hippie and loves this kind of stuff. FUD stands for Feminine Urinary Device, and allows ladies to "go" standing up. She said it came in handy on cross-country road trips... I bout killed myself laughing. ;)

Dear Abby answered this question years ago. end of roll toward you (over the top) was the high class way of mounting the roll. down the back was considered lower class.

Melanie    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:24:13       [Reply]  [No Email]
Heh. Oh, man. High class hiney wipe. Buh-ruddah. ;)

We have a local weatherman on TV here and his head is entirely too big for his body. Not sure about the business end where the TP goes but he looks goofy anyway.

Maybe his relatives designed those two paper products.

KellyGa    Posted 07-21-2004 at 10:39:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
Over the top here. Men are supposed to put the seat down because it is the proper thing to do for the ladies, it is mannerly. In our house, we keep the whole thing down, lid and all. Don't want to see in the hole where we potty, just a thing with me.

Besides, if I go in there in the middle of the night to go pee, and I end up with my butt in the water, I am gonna wake everybody up in the house when I scream at the top of my lungs!!! And nobody wants that. ;)

it be prudent to check before you sit down?

OK KellyGa:

When it rains, why don't sheep shrink?

Melanie    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:22:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
They're pre-shrunk. Ain't you ever seen a new one? ;)

Jumper    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:26:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
Ahhhhh. All along I thought the dryer would shrink them not the water. I have one of those dryers that can dry 26 pairs of jeans. Hmmmm. That is about the size of a small sheep. Wuz gonna try it to see what happened but now I dont hafta.

Thanks ;^)

Rolls??????? We're still using the Sears catalog. We settled the seatup/seatdown issue years ago. We each have our own bathroom.......John

The paper hangs whichever way your wife wants it.

To make you think that someone actually cleaned . . . well, looked at . . . well, passed by the bathroom.

I don't know.

Bob Mi    Posted 07-21-2004 at 12:42:47       [Reply]  [No Email]
