So... When you put the toilet paper on the roll,

Which way do you align the end?
It goes over the top towards you. It's the only correct way!:23 (67.6%)
Around the bottom. This is the only correct way!:2 (5.9%)
Sometimes over the top, sometimes around the bottom.:6 (17.6%)
I don't have toilet paper! :(:3 (8.8%)
Total:34

I'm guessing "around the bottom" means the loose end is towards the wall and you haven't found a way to make your toilet paper defy gravity.

Anyway, I put it top towards me but neither way is a major trial for me to overcome. I know businesses often put it the other way to discourage casually pulling off 5' of toilet paper since there's more friction involved and less wild spool spinning.

It gets placed on top of the old empty roll that someone is too lazy to take off, or on the back of the toilet.

It goes over the top, because LOGIC!!

Unless your my fiancee, in which case it goes on the stack of magazines near the toilet because the roll mechanism broke once when you tried to put a new one on it and now you're scared to try again. Smiley: disappointed

I honestly just chuck it on the spool whichever way it comes out of the bag. If you can't figure out how to operate a paper roll in either orientation, you aren't worthy to use my spectacularily technologically upgraded toilets anyways!

Yeah, those thin plastic strips bent easily and all the smelly beads would trickle out.

I need an option for "I have a four year old so the TP is usually in the bathtub, wet, with all the bath toys and Megablox" but when that's not the case, I like to put it around back.

Little kids don't know or appreciate the difference anyway. Once they're older you go for the (overpriced) quality stuff.

Seriously, Legos cost a god **** mint these days for anything besides the lame ten piece "Guy with motorcycle" sets.

"Legos" isn't actually a word and I should be saying "LEGO brand modular building toy blocks" or some shit. I'm sticking it to the man!

Yeah, I popped in to a Lego store in the mall and made the mistake of glancing at the price tags. Some of the large sets were pushing $200, easy. Even those basic "lego dude with accessories" ones were like $14 min.

Is this a new thing? When I was a kid we had a Scrooge McDuck's vault-sized amount of Legos; you could dive into the pile and swim around in 'em. I can't see my parents laying down the kind of cash that it would take for that nowadays.

I was an around-the-back guy until I married an over-the-top girl and she converted me. Even now that we're divorced, I still go over-the-top just because it's become force of habit.

Doesn't it sound like that post was about something completely other than toilet paper?

If you have one of the original space shuttle sets you can get even more than that for it.

I remember some epic-huge sets running about $100 when I was a kid back in 70's/80's. Some huge ship/moon base set and stuff. But those were rare (like one or two sets) and $60+ for a medium sized set seems the norm these days.

I wonder if part of the price hike is all the licensing these days. Anything remotely popular with the kids gets licensed by Lego: Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Batman, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc. According to Wiki, I see twenty-two licensed themes. All that costs money. Back in my day (old man) you had "Space", "Town" and it was a big day when "Medieval" came out and we could stop using antennae as swords. Speaking of, it seems like every set has specialty pieces these days that never existed back during the dawn of man. All that stuff has to cost money too.

My favorite was probably the pirate set, but I actually preferred the 'imperial' side guys from it. Never was really into pirates, for some reason.

I remember when we got this set. Came out in '93. I think that's around the point when they started moving on from the regular ol' knights, pirates, space set and into some more unique-looking fare with more specialty pieces.

PS: Greatly prefer this discussion to the toilet paper one.

I just get my son a few of the smaller Lego kits these days. He usually makes them into whatever the kit is supposed to be once, then he dumps them in with his other Legos and just builds random crap. And I can't remember the last time I saw a box of Legos that wasn't some sort of kit or a Duplo set.

Your son has more self control than I had. I'd get new pieces and sets just so I could get pieces from them to combine with other sets and pieces to make random rocket car ship stuff. I don't think I ever actually made the "correct" thing.

My little brother is getting older now, but he has thousands of dollars wasted in legos that he insisted my dad superglue together.

I have a good friend who's in his mid-to-late 30's, someone we might call a "nerd", who has a lego collection that would make any grown woman, man, or child weep. He has an exact replica Serenity (spaceship from Firefly?) model that he made way before the movie even came out (I think they have some actually Firefly legos now, I could be wrong). Projects he's spent thousands on buying sets for single pieces at a time.

It looks like one of those foil swans you get your leftovers wrapped in.

Maybe the actual Serenity looks like that as well -- I never watched Firefly or the movie.

Pretty much. The model's spot-on. It's supposed to resemble its namesake, but it's got more of a bumblebee-"doesn't appear like it's actually capable of flight"-kinda look to it. It's also ugly as sin, a-la the Moa or Osprey in EVE.

Maybe that's the charm?

The only correct place to store legos is on the floor, all over the floor.


Also, I remember getting this set because we moved and my parents sold the old house for way more than what the new house cost so we all got one really fancy gift. I lost some crucial piece after a month or so (presumably to the vacuum cleaner, never to be seen again.)

My dad took an old coffee table, glued lego "floor tile" pieces to the surface, and nailed gutters around the perimeter of it to catch/store the pieces. It was pretty nifty.

As an aside: He commonly uses legos to repair little things around the house (as spacers, or to replace a specific mechanical piece). It's not a bad idea; the way that their shaped takes glue really well, and there are a million and a half different permutations.

If he had a motto, it would be "There's a lego for anything", which he's wont to say.

I would surmise that over-the-toppers are probably type 1 perfectionists. Under-and-down are likely get it done quickly and efficiently types. Those that don't bother with putting it on the holder at all are unambitious potheads.
