Subject: Tearing Paper
Message: In reference to this answer below, if you are in a bathroom on Shabbos with only a roll of paper you can tear the paper. Does it matter if its on the perforation or not?

Reply: Only if you are stuck in the bathroom without tissues, then you can tear it not on the perforation.

Why is it that tearing not on the perforation is better? In the end, you end up tearing more than you would if on the perforation.

   
Reply:  The point is to not tear specifically on the perforations. You can just tear it amd wherever it tears is good.It can be a question of Mechatach, because you are cutting to a specific size.
