Ah yeah, I remember when my Dad used to go off on anyone squeezing the toothpaste tube wrong. However, the idea is pretty much moot now. Back then, toothpaste came in metal tubes, and if you bent it in the middle, you permanently lost some toothpaste in the bottom. But then they switched to plastic tubes, and it really doesn't matter where you squeeze, as long as you don't mess up the tube completely. So my advice would be to chill out and not judge others on such things. This comic is from Zach Weinersmith at Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.
