We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It is over around here - what with the three females, all highly educated professional women (professional as in work - get your mind out of the gutter Doc Mercury).
Strangely, there is a certain logic to their opinion. One, as the TP is usually over a heater vent of some sort, the flutter is attractive and "homey". Second, the under approach seems to require, on occasion, searching for the bitter end of the roll (little nautical/bathroom humor there) which, from what I can gather, is a HUGE no-no.
Lastly, apparently it is easier to obtain the exact number of sheets to use after doing what ever it is that is done in addition to being easier to tear evenly and with precision
Because they don't want to ever worry about whether it is down, they don't ever want to put it down, and they're women.
It's unfair, but a small price to have the privileged of sharing space with them. :-)
It's OVER. OVER winds by a landslide. UNDER hides the first sheet behind the roll, making it hard to grasp. OVER makes the first sheet more accessible and easier to grasp. It eliminates the need for search and destroy. In the middle of the night, who wants to be thrashing around in desperation looking for that elusive first sheet? The idea is to be OVER with it and get back into bed asap. UNDER is a conspiracy to overthrow the Righteous Order of the Universe, spawned by FemiNazis and Leftards. The argument is OVER. Deal with it.
