Have you watched The Good Doctor? One of the plot points in Season 2, Episode 6 has to do with improperly hung toilet paper rolls.
Dr.Murphy doesn’t tolerate an underhand hang and neither do I.
Time to classify the flock. We sheep come n three types:
- Those who want the toilet paper hung correctly
- Those who don’t care which way it is hung
- Those who use a bidet
Those that prefer an underhand hang can be safely ignored. This group’s members are just saying they like underhand to oppose group number one, as there is no logical reason to prefer underhand above overhand.
So, since a roll can be absent, hung underhand or hung overhand, that’s three potential states in which the toilet paper roll can exist .
We’ve established that underhand is illogical. Obviously leaving an empty roll is wrong. So now we are down to two states: Right and wrong. Black and white. Binary. Nice. Now we’re in my wheelhouse.
One might ask, “What’s the big deal which way the toilet paper is hung?”
I don’t know. Why would I want to do something the wrong way, when doing it the right way takes the same effort?
It’s good practice for other depletables that can be oriented in one of two binary states:
- Light bulbs
- Contact lenses
Put any of the above in the wrong orientation and you will have trouble.
Stay out of trouble folks.
