I’ve been running this study on the DL for the past couple months in the library bathroom. The dispenser on the right has a sticker on it reminding users that paper towels come from trees, thus encouraging them to use less. The dispenser on the left, on the other hand, doesn’t pass judgment when you slaughter fifteen pumps of paper to dehydrate your damp palms.

Hypothesis: the left one would run out of paper faster.

Results: duh. The one on the right’s still almost full.

Naysayers, I don’t want to hear your alternative hypotheses. Unless they’re implausible and easy to disclaim, in which case please comment.
