There are two types of people in this world: those who hang the toilet paper over the roll, and those who hang it under. Just kidding, the world is a diverse, non-binary playground of existence. But everyone seems to have a strong opinion about toilet paper orientation, and the people at Wendover Productions have politicized it by exploring the socioeconomic factors underlying people's preferences.

While 60% of the general public prefers laying the paper over the roll, the demographic makeup of each side is where it becomes divisive.

If you're older, liberal, or make over $50,000 a year, you'll likely prefer over. If you're middle-aged, conservative, or make under $20,000 a year, the stats assume you like it under.

Or, if you're in the royal family, you apparently don't have to worry about it all. The video features Princess Diana's butler explaining that they have a box of folded tissues near the loo instead of a roll. Ah, the splendors of royalty!
