Tinder profile sparks history's most pointless debate
A DATER who uploaded a quirky bathroom shot as her Tinder profile has revealed she's been contacted by 23 men - but none had romance on the mind.
Instead, she has sparked a fierce debate about her toilet habits.
In the snap she shared on Twitter, hers is positioned so the paper hangs down the back of the roll and along the wall.
But her critics say it should hang over the front.
This is my tinder profile. I’ve had it for a year. 23 men have contacted me to say I’m incorrect about toilet paper pic.twitter.com/uBAcQlZ34r— Hana Michels (@HanaMichels) July 2, 2018
Her post has triggered more than 800 comments with all manner of theories as to the best way to fit a loo roll on to a holder.
While some people agree with Hana, arguing her method makes it easier to tear the paper from the roll, it seems most people are traditionalists.
One even dug out the original patent for a loo roll that was filed in 1891 and posted a picture of it to prove Hana's mistake.
The diagram clearly shows the paper hanging over the front of the roll.
And another Twitter user said they believe the front-facing positioning must be correct because that the way they're found in public toilers.
They theorised this could be because "the paper can touch the bottom of the wall where bacteria can reside".
