2 Girls, 1 Guy & 1 River

Breaking up is not easy, but now we have the story of one ex-girlfriend who just couldn’t let her love die. She jumped into a river to try to force her ex to save her. What she didn’t count on was that his current girlfriend would do the same, forcing him to choose between the two love-stricken ladies.

In the end, he chose to save his current girlfriend and called his brother to save the ex. Awww young love. Personally, I would’ve just pushed him into the river. Read the full story here.

The Great Toliet Paper Debate= Solved!

The debate over whether you hang your toilet paper “over” or “under” is one of those chicken-and-egg things that people will argue about until the end of time.

If you somehow don’t know about the debate, it’s based on the two possible ways you can hang toilet paper on a roll.In the “over” position, the paper hangs to the front.  In the “under” position, the paper hangs to the back.  People have been arguing FOREVER over which way is “right.”  But not anymore.A writer just dug up the original patent for the toilet paper roll from 1891.  It’s by an inventor named Seth Wheeler, and it actually ANSWERS THE QUESTION, once and for all.In the patent drawing, the roll is in the “over” position.  So THAT’S your definitive answer.
