Two Types of People

Yesterday I posed this thought to our Twitter and Facebook users: The world can be divided into two types of people: Those who squeeze the toothpaste in the middle (or anywhere, randomly), and those who must squeeze from the bottom.

Then I asked for additional examples. Dozens poured in. Here are my Top 10 Favorites:
10. Heather Griffin said: one that calls any type of cola SODA, and the other that calls it POP.
9. Kristen Leigh said: Those who hang the roll of toilet paper over, and those who hang under.
8. Liz Kim said: those who pour the cereal in first and those that pour the milk in...!
7. Ferris Weston said: 1) Those who do not understand dichotomies.
6. Jane Daugherty Martin said: People who read the instructions and those who do not
5. Kathryn Kamowski said: Those who like Journey, and those who lie.
4. Rammy Meyerowitz said: There are two "types" of people, the "touch-typists" and the "hunt and peckers"
3. Norbert Smith said: Those who think there are two types of people, and those who don't.
2. Charlotte Holden said: those that understand Lost and those that appreciate all this free time on their hands
And my number-1 favorite, which is an old math joke, but one I’d never heard before: Amy Dyer said: There are 10 types of people: Those who understand binary and those who don't

Here’s my answers, what are yours?

10 – soda, 9 – over, 8 – cereal, 6 – do not read, 5 – Journey rocks!, 4 – touch, 3 – two types!, 2 – time on hands!

The math joke is hilarious! (Well, it's computer science to me!) (for those curious, "10" in binary = "2" in our base 10 counting system - the "10" in this joke could also be written as 00000010, if that helps make it clearer, albeit way less clever :)

Soda and Pop is a bit restrictive! I don't know anyone who uses either, here it's all 'soft drink.' And what about 'Soda pop' which I swear I've heard on US TV at least once?

This made me feel better about the fact that I'm not the only person in the world that pours their milk before the cereal. I pour the milk in a bowl, then pour some cereal a bit at a time. That way it never gets soggy. I actually don't know why everybody does it the other way.
10. pop 9. over 8. Milk 6. read 5. They're okay 4. touch 3. don't 2. I kicked that addiction a while ago 1. I'm kind of ashamed that I got that.
I haven't posted for a long time, just wanted to say how much I love Neatorama. I visit it every day.

10 - neither, if it's cola based then it's all coke, otherwise it's either fizzy drink or lemonade, possibly prefixed with a colour
