Guess I'll start. I'm #2, before and after, which sometimes leads to losing the toothpaste in the sink. What can I say, some brands are really shitty and it's definitely not my fault this happens.

before applying toothpaste for sure 100%

gets rid of whatever leftover, dried substance from last night/last morning, dust particles, etc,etc

for some reason i run the brush under the water AGAIN after applying the toothpaste ...
never thought much of it but it's probably just a subconscious/psychological response to cleanliness

Do you also shit in the shower? That's the ultimate in efficiency because then the shower can get the poo off your bum hairs.
I have this plan, see. I just need to figure out how to laminate my entire gaming rig...

Ever brushed while shaving? It's like patting your head and rubbing your tummy.
I have not tried this. It might go poorly. I value my beard.

Agree. Makes it far easier to ignore them.

On this one i have to pretend again to take it seriously and that's never a good idea for a thread that isn't serious to begin with.
It's a serious question, just like asking if you wipe standing up or sitting down. I know it's hard to believe but about half the population does it wrong and they wipe sitting down.

The bolded makes this satirical assuming we talking about doing number 2.

Also, asking wipe standing up or sitting down is also reserved for @Cunth.

Running water over toothpaste only increases the likelihood of toothpaste rinsing off the brush. I run water before applying. It "refreshes" the brush. Like washing an apple before consumption.
I'd say it's more like wetting a paintbrush vs using it dry, it refreshes the bristles. And I'm surprised so many people in here are saying they wet the toothpaste, as you said the only potentiality there is you losing some of that toothpaste, so why bother.

I think rinsing it 1st loosens the bristles, which make them more flexible to get in between the teeth/gums.

Rinse afterwards seems like a no brainer.

The weird thing I do is store my toothbrush/tongue brush and toothpaste in a sealed container in the fridge. I don't like leaving it out to air dry in the bathroom. Something seems nasty about that.
