Methodology for Loo Roll Installation

It does seem that this is one of those unresolved issues in the oh so complex first world.
Loose end on the inside or outside?

Inside:
Design of holder might mean end papers lie against the wall increasing the chance for surface contact contamination.
You have to reach further for the end tissue.
The end tissue might be hidden behind the roll necessitating a partial roll.
Moving the end in a downwards direction requires an upward hand movement which is less efficient than a downwards movement.
If you brush the roll inadvertently when going to grasp, that might roll the roll, moving the end further away from grasping fingers.

Outside:
None of the above. Well, maybe the last one.

The Japanese have probably improved on the whole procedure with a hermetically sealed, heated holder, motorized to eject two sheets with each press of a sealed button, perhaps on the floor, sheets very slightly moisturized and scented at the point of the ejection slot mechanism. On exit door closing, a deodorizing spray is activated, floral.

Talk about anal.

How can you put the Hotel Fold on the end if it ain't on the outside?

I was told that blokes get chided for the backwall version, and that ladies prefer them hanging outwards... er... how to make that sound right?

The original patent (1891) clearly shows outside:

RSM once, telling battalion parade they were using too much crap wrap. "You may use TWO sheets." (Tears off two sheets and lets the flutter, one at a time, to the ground.) "You will NOT do this." (Tears off about 2 metres, puts it between his legs and pulls it back and forth like dental floss.)

What OP said - cons outweigh the pros by a wide margin.

Certainly true as far as I'm concerned! Never realised it mattered so much before we got married. A bit like the correct position of the toilet seat when not being used.

In Ecuador, at an immaculate facility, a female attendant would exchange one green one for two white ones. You get what you pay for.

On a cruise ship it is always outward with the end paper folded in to a neat arrow.

What is this thing called toilet paper? Isn't that what the brush is for?

What always amazed me was that the government must have paid to have "Government Property" printed on every sheet of Izal bog paper, just to stop people nicking the stuff. Seemed bonkers, as no one in their right mind would nick it. For years, many of us kept our own personal roll of soft bog paper in our lockers, anyway.

Early days in the Forces we were provided with Government issue 'sandpaper! Somewhat oddly, each sheet had a small square printed in one corner. Discussion as to its purpose eventually decided that it was for Civil Servants to place a tick to indicate usage!

The loose end should be on the outside. This is so that you can screw up a yard or so; drop it into the WC basin; then flush it.

The rush of water will grip the bunched paper and drag it around the bend followed by the rest of the roll with a satisfying clattering sound.

Then you cover the seat with instant glue.

I forgot: Spread clingfilm across the top of the porcelain below the seat.

That shiny IZAL toilet paper was a HM Government attempt to polish a turd. It wasn't much use for doing anything else.
