Video: People have been debating which way the toilet paper should roll for as long as we've had toilet paper. This video from Wendover Productions provides more folio for this long-standing debate. The video shares survey results and fun facts, such as that most people prefer the toilet paper edge over the roll, liberals are more likely to prefer over and conservatives are more likely to prefer under. One therapist, Dr Gilda Carle, who is also a consultant for Cottonelle, devised a Toilet Paper Personality test and linked toilet paper preference to personality types. Those who prefer over are more likely to have a dominant personality type, while those who prefer under are more likely to be easy-going and submissive.
Whether you agree or not, it's pretty fascinating. The video above concludes with the toilet paper patent, perhaps putting an end to this debate after all.
