The Huffington Post recently published an article that contains the drawing of a 124 year old patent for toilet paper. Most importantly, it answers the great debate of over or under. We all have discussed this issue with friends, coworkers and family but there has never been a right or wrong way to place your toilet paper…Until now!
The patent, which was published in 1891 by a New York businessman named Seth Wheeler shows the toilet paper in the “over” position. That’s right folks; the great debate has been finally settled. Below is the picture of said patent.

If you had your toilet paper in the “under” position will you change it now? With this debate now settled, what other debates do you commonly hear? We would love to hear about them.
