Personally, I staple them at the top left corner with the staple parallel to the top of the page.

Same corner, but at an angle. Diagonal

I usually paper clip.

Honestly though, if I have to staple someone it depends on what it's for.

Top left diagonally for 10+ pages.

Very top center for reading and writing.

A whole bunch if I'm mad.

Not at all if it's painting/pictures.

as a matter of fact I noticed that when I first typed it, changed, and then changed it back because it was subtle humor. I was hoping I wouldn't feel as though anyone was taking wisecracks at my dyslexia XD.

I paperclip and staple constantly at work.

Reports that are WIP I paperclip, When they are completed I staple in the top left corner diagonally. When the staple is in diagonally the strain on the staple when flipping pages is spread out over the whole length of the staple rather than at one corner.

I think a corollary question to this is if you have landscape oriented paper being stapled with portrait oriented, on which side of the portrait paper is the top of the landscape paper? I staple with the top to the right. The guy that did this job before me stapled with the top to the left.

I staple once, diagonally, at each corner and once in the middle. Pisses the professors right off.
