I think...

hanging down freely in front (not on the wall side) is best because if there is moisture on the wall it can ruin the whole roll. And I am unanimous in that.

I once dated a girl who had a weird idiosyncrasy, she could NOT throw out the TP tubes! And she had no explanation for that behavior either. She had a huge pile of used tubes. Will this new development be a boon to her or will it traumatize her I wonder.

Sorry- public computer glitch.

Adrian Monk's ex-GF, maybe?

Anyway, you're dead wrong, you facinorous runagate! It should hang down the back, so the length will jerk free more easily, and without pulling out another ten inches.
Now, where did I put that Mod's personal phone number ...

Tell the toilet paper companies...

They're printing the patterns on the wrong side.

There's an explanation for that ...

The manufacturers know that right thinking masses of consumer drones won't care that there is a pattern on the paper. Only a non-conformist would care. That's why they put the pattern on the wrong side of the paper.

More seriously: I confess I never noticed that the pattern was printed on just one side. It never occurred to me to hang the roll the other way. Then again, I don't really pay attention to the pattern. If I hadn't just spent the last 3 days in the bathroom with a nasty GI bug I would not have even been able to tell you whether or not our current TP even has a pattern.

Also...

Also, if you let it hang over the top, your kitty may eventually learn to keep swatting it over and over, unrolling the whole roll, to make a nice and soft kitty-bed on the floor.

As a kid, we gave TP an paper towel rolls to our hamsters

They loved them. They'd crawl in and out of them but eventually shred them for bedding. I'd have to think we'd be depriving a lot of hamsters of the joy of playing with TP rolls if they were no longer produced.

Plus we used them as forms for

home-built radios, remember?
