Toilet paper should be positioned on the dispenser so that it rolls out from the front, instead of the back. When it's positioned so that it rolls out from the back, it's more difficult to gauge how many squares you'll actually end up with when you rip a bunch of squares off of the roll. An insufficient number of squares can result in a wiping mishap, so it is therefore rude to position the toilet paper so that it comes out of the back of the roll.

All i have to say is that my toilet paper already flows out from the front because i am a little more advanced
and also, if you feel that it would help you, not everybody has to follow you.
You shouldn't have used "should" in your title but instead "could"
good topic though :P

By your own standards, you shouldn't have used "shouldn't" in your reply, and should've used could've instead.

What I am implying is that people should be considerate enough to the potential visitors of their residences, businesses, etc to position the toilet paper so that it rolls out from the front of the roll instead of the back in order to prevent a catastrophic wiping mishap. I didn't state that everyone HAS to follow me, I am simply stating my personal stance, which you are supposed to be debating.

The notion that your toilet paper already flows out the front because you are more advanced than I holds no weight in this argument. Obviously, I am not considering whether or not I should make my toilet paper flow from the front, I am advocating that everyone else should. If you were truly more advanced, I would not have to explain this to you.

yeah but think about it
mankind has been doing things so that it is benefitial to them
if the toilet paper is rolled out form the back, its probably becuse they were used to and it facilitated their lives
the wiping mishap would have happened if they switched it because it would take over a year to get used to it
if your whole life you were used to the back flowing toilet paper,
a sudden switch miight just confuse everybody and cause chaos

I contend that even if a person was used to the toilet paper rolling out from the back, that they still would be able to accurately evaluate the number of squares that they would be ripping off of the front of the role, if the roll were positioned so that the toilet paper rolled out from the front. I also contend that the majority of people are not used to having the toilet paper positioned from the back, or in any certain position at all for that matter.

If people would just position their toilet paper so that it rolled out from the front, it would prevent numerous wiping mishaps, which would therefore decrease the level of anal-retentiveness that society is plagued with today. If society as a whole was less anal-retentive, it may very well reduce the level of sociological tension that contributes to so many of our world's problems today, and make this planet a better place to live.

I guess there could be a slight degree of truth to what you're proposing, but answer me this: what if you're wrong, philadam? WHAT IF YOU'RE WRONG?

guys in the bottom saying they affirm, dont
and ill tell u way
1) JasonMc is not an actual Mc and has lied to you
2) His toilet paper only flows from the from the back, he wants to screw you guys over with his toilet paper tricks
3) Think of the kids...
4) French people put their toilet paper in the front
- do you want to be french
- voulez vous couchez avec moi, nope didnt think so
- thats not racism ^^^ I am franco argentinian so dont get mad
5) a study has found that you lose weight from putting your toilet paper from the back
6) Aids is very common in front-flowing toilet paper
7) There is a myth that you will die within seven days of using frontly dispensed toilet paper
8) What is front but the back
9) If you dispense toilet paper from the front, your natural instinct will be to wipe your front (wiwi for guys - poochypoo for girls)
9) Jason sells drugs to kids
10) He is a communist

As you see, my point is very clear...
Vote negative or forever hold your peace

sleepiB: Look man, you just have to keep the cat out of the bathroom. I would recommend keeping the door shut.

philadam: Your response in round 3 is exactly what I was talking about in round 3. I believe what has happened is that you are actually the one who's weaving the web of lies, and that you have been using the backwards method for so long that it has resulted in the signals between your optic nerve and some of your rectal nerves getting crossed. This results in you having a crappy outlook on the issue at hand. You may need to go and get that looked at. Take care of yourself, man.
