    The toilet seat is actually comparably one of the better bacteria-free zones in your house.

    So before you start crying your sorry eyes out about toilet seats, please take note of the fact that the very keyboard you are typing your nonsense with is far more infested with microorganisms than your toilet seat will ever be.

    In fact, you would probably be safer drinking the freshly excreted piss of a well hydrated human being than you would be eating a pack of cheese-its while browsing the internet. Get a grip.

    What these morons don't realise is that exposure to germs is a good thing. Lifeforms are supposed to exist in harmony and have been designed by nature to exist in this way. Coming into contact with germs is a natural thing, and it strengthens the immune system too. Obviously I don't suggest that you go around biting AIDS sufferers, but this pathetic phobia of germs that irrational people possess is irritating at best and counter-productive at worst.

    The lid is there for a reason that isn't just so your dog won't drink out of it. If you put the lid down after urinating, the female will have to lift it up again so that she can do the same thing. That's about as equal as it gets for all those sexist cunts every woman is now.
    Off topic, but didn't you used to refer to yourself in the third person, or am I thinking of someone else?

    I am like this because I'm living with my mom and two other brothers, one is a baby btw, and even his toothbrush is near the others! :s

    Until I go live with someone, because I love him/her, I would say I wouldn't mind at all having my toothbrush near her/his toothbrush. I'm just weird like that.

    I'm all for closing the toilet. Whenever I use it I always completely close it when I'm finished. However all of my room mates are women and they always leave the lid open seat down. >_> who is the lazy gender again? (Joking)

    My wife insists on the following (and i agreed after some time):

    1) The seat must be lifted whenever you're not sitting on it.
    2) The rule 1 applies to both women and men.

    The reason is to protect the seat from possible drops of water that could spill out when you flush.

    So none of the above options is applicable here. However if not at home - i use schema B.

    I'm a guy and I just put up the seat whenever I pee and put it down when i'm done... I just leave it in the state it already was. My mom is the only female (except when GF's are over) and she's got nothing to complain I don't understand the fuss about shit like this, its a fucking small effort to do it.. :/ Also: leaving the seat up when done just makes the toilet look ugly, i dont like ugly.

    We never close the lid though, i think im resistant to the micro water bubles that apperantly kill others.

    I chose option A and I'm a male. Honestly, it takes all of 2 seconds to do either task. For something that takes 2 seconds, I can't believe people would actually think it unfair, or even call it "work."

    My cat likes drinking water from the toilet bowl, so I leave it open for him no matter what.

    Also, for the same reason that other people think toilets look better closed, I think it looks much better, aesthetically speaking, when open with the seat up.

    Plus I spend most of my time at home (IT work), whereas my girlfriend spends most of her time away, so the default position of the seat in our house is always up.

    I leave the seat up.

    It is hardly an issue having to lift the seat up or put it down, i live in a house with 2 men and 1 women so its a non issue.

    I went with option C, because otherwise my cat drinks out of the toilet and that's just gross. If I had no pets, I wouldn't care one way or the other. I don't mind putting the seat down, and I don't mind finding it already down. The only time I'd ever have a problem is if I get up in the middle of the night, half awake, and sit down without looking. If the seat's up you fall through, and cold toilet water on your bottom is REALLY not cool. Well, I suppose technically it is in fact cool (or downright cold) but it isn't fun! Even in that case however, it's my own fault for not looking.

    I don't think I know anyone who cares enough about the position of the seat to mention it, so I guess I'll have to abstain my vote.
    Grammer nazi's aren't a per-requisite for you're enjoyment of these signature. Although for all intensive purposes its really a mute point, per say.

I honestly don't understand what's so difficult about a guy lowering the seat when you can just let gravity do most of the work anyway.
    We don't think it's a pain in the ass to put it down, we think it's stupid to throw a hissy fit every time he forgets.

    That is stupid. On the other hand, it's equally stupid to make a big deal out of something that takes no effort and yet seems to make the people around us we care about happy.

    I always (98%) of the time lowers bot the seat and the lid. Always have done that aswell.

    My husband and I both agree on leaving the toilet seat and lid down after we do our business. Our "YAY THE POOL IS OPEN" cats led to that decision. It's not so much because of germs but rather because they get so wet and then curl up on our bed afterward. x_x

    I don't like touching toilet seats, if it's down when I need to pee I choose option D.

    Pee in the sink.

    Your cats like water? I wish my cat was like that.

    I have nothing against putting my seat down.

    I'm just saying, don't start yelling just because I forget once in a while.
