I have a different question on the subject. Several of my friends just prop the roll of toilet paper on top of the cylinder instead of sticking the roller through the hole in the paper. People then pick up the roll with their hands and remove as much as they need. This might not be so bad, except that some people use the roll more than once on the same bathroom visit. Also, sometimes the toilet paper is dropped on the floor before being repropped. Several times I have made remarks regarding how unhealthy this habit may be, but they just laugh. Although they are otherwise hygienic, these people seem to have more upset stomachs than our other friends.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2011 Overdue remuneration will finally manifest in the next solar cycle, leading to a prolonged windfall. Make hay while the sun shines, and invest your newfound holdings in something that has a future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Assume the initiative and direct events yourself instead of waiting on others to lead the way. You’re a natural leader who has the talent many others lack. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Others tend to be more responsive than usual, so be sure to make the impression you want, especially when in the presence of someone to whom you’re attracted. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Substantial gratification can be derived by working on projects that allow you to make improvements. You’ll enjoy revamping outmoded systems, methods or things. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Your one-on-one relationships could hold some surprises, such as the unexpected cooperation of someone who never tends to pitch in and be helpful. Enjoy it while it lasts. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -One of the best ways to make money is to market what you love doing. It enables you to spend all your working hours applying yourself to satisfying both your inclinations and your income. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -There is something exciting about you that attracts others: your happiness at finally being able to spend your time doing exactly what you want to do. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Having a considerate and generous attitude actually puts you in the profit column. Lady Luck tends to favor those who care about the welfare of others as well as their own. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Keeping all of your comments positive enables you to say what you want without fear of anything being resented or misunderstood. It’s a good practice to get into. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When you least expect it, you could suddenly get the credit and/or recognition for a kind act or significant accomplishment. In addition to the accolades, some kind of reward could be in the offing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -When you appreciate the fact that you’re enough of a go-getter to pursue something quite meaningful, you’ll get busy. Assertive action will bring you the results you desire. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Unless you realize the fact that you have the power and fortitude to alter conditions to your liking, you won’t do so. It behooves you to have faith in yourself and your abilities. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -It’s one of those days when it would be best to work in conjunction with others instead of attempting to do everything on your own. An associate could have the talent you lack.
