Mechanics of this aside (and might there not be an argument for being able to get a better, sharper, range of pulling movement from the right hand version, thus making sheet separation much more likely), Derek’s amusing reaction made me think that maybe there is a disjunct between people who approach common tasks in different ways. An example – while at university, I discovered in conversation that there were two types of people – those that scrunched their loo roll and those that folded it. The existence of folders was, until that moment, completely unknown to me. And I have to confess that the very idea of carefully folding tissue for that purpose seems to me to border on anal-obsessive lunacy. And yet people do it. Can you think of any other examples? Mail me.
