So for the longest time now I noticed while brushing my teeth, everyone in my family that squeezes the toothpaste always squeezes in the middle of the tube instead of the end of the tube like myself. Sometimes it makes me wonder why do you squeeze from the middle, when you have to push up everything from the end to use up all the toothpaste when everything from the top is nearly all gone instead of just starting from the end at the beginning?

On that note where do you squeeze your toothpaste from?

I start in the middle when it is still pretty full. As it gets more empty, I will then start to squeeze from the back and curl the tube towards the front.

From the back, always. I start rolling the back, so if it's full in just about a second it comes out, and if not I guess i'm really going to have to roll it out.

From the tube. Where else would I get it from?

I use a toothpaste dispenser.
It tends to squeeze from the tip down to the bottom. There's a button to "align" the squeezing when the toothpaste gets low that it'll do a mechanical squeeze from the back to the bottom to get the last bit of toothpaste out.

From the middle, then I squeeze it from the back towards the front until I get some toothpaste. If the toothpaste it almost gone, then I would just cut the tube in half with scissors, scoop up what ever is left, and seal it in a small Ziplock so that no air comes in and dries the toothpaste.

I start by stroking the tube to get the white paste out. When that doesn't work, I have to be a little rough, so I go to the back and push down really hard to get the paste out. I really enjoy brushing my teeth.

From the bottom.

I think squeezing from the middle is icky. But as long as we aren't sharing toothpaste and therefore I don't have to deal with your annoying middle-squeezing habit I don't care... much.

(Actually I once wrote a poem about this. I was feeling less tolerant at the time.)

I never really cared much about toothpaste to even think about using one of those... that last bit of Titanium White however...

Eh, maybe I should pick up some more of these.

Ah, the 15th century, when they were still metal, not plastic:
