This Hole Debate Is Deep! Video Debating How Many Holes A Roll Of Paper Towels Has Gets Social Media Fired Up
A debate in a video on Twitter (seen below) between a couple guys takes something simple like a roll of paper towels and gets super deep and philosophical in a hurry. The debate even fired up a heated conversation during the MIX 108 Morning Show and on our Facebook page.
The original video on Twitter shows a few people debating how many holes a roll of paper towels has. The video offers two different arguments, but some MIX 108 listeners offered a third possible answer. Here are the possible answers that have been offered:
One Hole: The argument for the answer "one hole" is that a roll of paper towels (or toilet paper, straw, etc.) is that the object has one opening through the middle of it. That one opening is the one hole the object has.
Two Holes: This explanation makes more sense with things like rolls of paper towels/toilet paper. Look at the end of a roll of toilet paper and you see a hole in an otherwise flat surface. Flip it over, and you see another hole. Two holes, right?
No Holes: Some MIX 108 listeners suggested there are technically no holes in the object. Angie and Mark, for example, offered explanations on our Facebook post about the subject (as seen below).
Based on the comments on our Facebook post about this, the edge goes to "one hole" as the answer, but we want to hear from you! Share your thoughts in our poll!
Here's the original video that sparked this debate.
