Toilet paper roll. Over or under?

I listened to an argument today about which is the correct way.
To put toilet paper so it rolls out, or so it hangs down from behind.
So which is it. LOL!

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    This is a constant battle in my house. We have actually gotten into arguments because someone will put it up in the under position, and I will then come along and place it in the correct position. 

    By placing the roll so that it dispenses over the top, it is much easier to find from a seated position. When one installs the roll incorrectly the other way round (under), it does not welcome one's hand to the next sheet on deck. Thus one must hunt, if you will, for the starting position. 

    I went so far as to post a sign in the downstairs bathroom last year, showing the correct way to install a roll of TP. Let's just say that didn't go over so well. I was only trying to educate the poor folks!

    A quick search on Google will bring up lots of funny memes and such. Even Wiki had a page on how to correctly install a roll of paper. 

    In case you were wondering, I don't consider this issue one of my many obsessive compulsions but it sure as heck irks me when I grab that first cup of coffee and head for the bathroom first thing in the morning...yes, I occasionally enjoy a coffee on the can. Don't judge.

    Well, the way my mind thinks, if the roll is under and the TP hangs down close to the wall, it can touch the walls and any nasty from the wall has now contaminated the TP.

    I hope your walls aren't as contaminated as that wad of TP at its final destination

    The area behind the roll is shielded from the micro spray when flushing.

    But then you pull two segments and your grabbing the same crap that wasn't shielded.

    Speaking of micro spray, you should never keep your tooth brush exposed within 15 feet of the nearest toilet. All them bacteria germs get in your mouth...yuck! Keep my brush in a travel holder up in the medicine cabinet :)

    Over. Unless you got a good reason to do it wrong,...... do it right.

    I drink coffee and beer in the bathroom and if it's really good in the shower. Don't try this at home. I'm a professional.

    Like the toilet seat up or down this is one of the most important issues of the day.

    If you know the Army technique of wiping, you only need one square, so it really doesn't matter.

    In the Marines they didn't teach us anything about wiping our butts. I suppose we had to attend so many classes on killing our enemies that they couldn't worry about teaching us wiping techniques.  

    I call my technique the "get the poop off your azz and also keep the poop off your hands while not clogging up the crapper method". And it takes more than one square.

    I do neither. I stand the roll up on the holder and lean it against the wall like so


    This is the easiest way to find the next sheet...
    Same, lol ^

    In truth, I was an under guy because of the cat my mom had growing up. We would go under for the reason Yakster stated above. I also know of the patent that clearly shows over is the correct way. Hard to argue with the government and its efficiency lol. 

    Now I just put the roll on without looking and whichever way it is, that's the way it stays. Anarchy!

    Reminds me of this roll of vinyl electrical tape I found that had accidentally been rolled sticky side out.

    MRE's are the reason they shouldn't give 1 ply in the military.  ;)
