    Definitely over, otherwise the hotels couldn't fold that neat triangle in the end sheet. I always have to turn the roll around if my wife has put it on the holder.

    I'm sure one of you wood workers could make some like this and save the arguing.

    When I visit someone's house, I've been known to reverse the roll to the opposite of what the homeowner prefers, roll out about a foot of paper from the roll, fold it back over itself, the roll the paper back onto the roll a couple of rotations...enough to hide the fold. The paper looks like the owner expects it to look, but after they pull a foot or so of paper from the roll, all of a sudden it's backward.

    Good times.

    Leave it to Vaughn!!! I mean it. He even does Kamakazi squirrels.

    As a male, I am all for "Over." There is a down side to "Under." When I pee, I don't have to reach so far, in an unusual position, to reach the end of the TP to get a piece to suck up the last drop.

    With that bit of fatherly advice I shall sign off.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Anybody that says OVER is just downright WRONG.

    It's supposed to be UNDER
