For what its worth, I'm a bread bag twist & flipper.

Strangely, two of the earlier arguments with my spouse focused on:

(1) Position of toilet seat
(2) Toilet Paper sheet placement (over under discussed here)

0 for two with those wars.

So did I but then, how could they print it on the sides? That'd be some damn advanced TP design.
Yeah, it would--but it'd be even better.... :silly:

Oh hell. I thought those were printed on at first (which would be fun).

I defense of cats at least they bury their crap. Unlike most people on the planet that can't even wipe their own ass.
Yeah. I had a sandbox as a kid, so that won't wash.

I have used sycamore leaves with wonderful results.  BTW, you ought to check out the toilet tissue tablets that you can get on Amazon.  I just got some.  They are nifty wipes for backpackers. 

Fourteen sturdy wipes will fit into one of those little tubes that hikers often use for keeping a small emergency supply of matches dry.  The bottom line, as they say, is that fourteen wipes occupy practically no space at all.

Thanks, but I don't carry buttwipe... Well, I DO, but not much, so I don't use it much... wet weather and emergencies...

 I just use grass or cedar bark or some such... if you know how to make a birds nest for lighting a fire, you don't need TP. Just miff the stuff till it's soft and downy, even more than you would for a fire,  and away you go... Then I ain't got to worry about counting squares to make sure I have enough to last.

I wouldn't know... though I have used magazines in the outhouse if the TP is gone.

I can tell you that out in the woods, counter to what one might assume, soft fuzzy leaves are usually a bad idea. stinging nettle as an example. Very, very bad idea.

I believe the corncob thing is a myth started by some 18th Century comedian.  I have known a lot of old timers with generations of outhouses, and not one of them has ever said anything about the use of corncobs.  (Sears and Monkey Ward's cataologues, yes [I have used them personally], but corncobs, no.  Anyone who has handled a corncob would say that the idea of using it in lieu of paper is crazy.  Might as well propose sandpaper.)

As with corncobs, just for outhouses. it seems... a failure attributable to the inferiority of modern plumbing. One thing you won't find in an outhouse is a plunger.

Regarding the poll:  I can't vote for any of the three choices.  I don't use a bidet and when I install a roll of toilet paper -- whichever way it ends up facing is where it stays.  I can't be bothered worrying about whether it's over or under.  I have more important things to do -- like taking my afternoon nap.

Nor pages from the Sears or MonkeyWard catelogs. Or is that just for outhouse use?
