Over or Under – The Toilet Paper Debate is Finally Settled
We now have proof that ends the age old debate, should the toilet paper go over the top or underneath?
..many devices designed to prevent waste have been patented; but all effort in this direction has been apart from the roll of paper-namely, in the construction of holders for the rolls provided with means to prevent free unwinding of the roll and cause the sheets to separate singly at their connecting points. My improved roll may be used on the simplest holders."
Google Patent Database gives detailed information on the patent and shows additional diagrams, all with the paper going over the top.
Now that the over-under toilet paper issue has finally been resolved, it's time to move on to more important things, like who's really responsible for making sure there's always toilet paper on the roll?
