I`m sure it comes as a surprise to you, but some people are able to think and write quite quickly. A handful of very short posts on a forum therefore doesn`t take up anywhere near as much of their life as it would do for you.

Replies to different posts. Should I wait for other people to make replies in between, in case I offend semiliterate people who are overwhelmed by the idea that one person could write more than a few words in a few minutes?

I`d rather be banned than semiliterate. I`m not going to dumb down to suit the lowest common denominator. That would be patronising.

Also, I was referring to the fact that the cut-off is less than the character count as you reply. So I cut my posts down to squash them into the 1000 character limit...and the last 10-50 characters are cut off anyway.

I find it a sad comment on the level of literacy in society that ~200 words is widely considered to be as much as anyone could possibly want to read.

Your extremely basic error only makes it sadder. The rules for the use of an apostrophe in English are extremely simple in almost all cases, yet a very large number of people whose first or only language is English don`t understand them.

Cut-off strikes again:

Equality is much simpler than sexed roles, which change over time and in different places.

[quote]Really? REALLY? Have you checked under your toilet lid lately? I don`t care if you have to swab that poo, THERE --WILL-- BE PISS THERE. It`s the result of splattering because men are doomed forever to piss into a bowl from a distance.[/quote]

No, it isn`t. Not enough force in the splatter to propel diluted piss against gravity out of the bowl and up onto the lid in a vertical position.

Splatter on the underside of the *lid* is likely to be the result of flushing with the lid down. The downward force of the flushing water is far, far greater than the downward force of a man`s pee.

Splatter on the underside of the *seat* is more likely to result from a person sitting down to pee. The pee carries very little distance before hitting the very rigid, waterproof inside of te toilet - it therefore splashes a lot more, easily enough to reach the underside of the seat.

Physics beats your casual stereotyping. The pee on the underside of your seat

If you ever learn what sexual equality is, you`ll realise that it doesn`t have to be a battle and both "sides" can win. I hope you gain that wisdom in time.

I live with two roommates, a guy and a girl and we`ve had endless conversations about leaving the toilet seat up.

What we`ve come up with is a collective reason WHY Guys should put the seat down after using it...

Because seriously, what`s the worst case scenario here for the guy? What, at 4 in the morning you`re going to stumble into the bathroom and forget to put up the lid? More likely than not, we`re going to have to clean that for you anyway...

Think about it from our point of view! It`s the middle of the night, we`re still asleep and we have to find our way into the bathroom. We don`t want to turn the lights on, because it burns like a [email protected][email protected]#ch and I`m sure as h ell not going to go feeling around for it and so we take the blind leap of faith and get an as s full of cold water. Not cool.

It`s only fair guys...if you love your ladies, please! Just give it a flick down! takes 2 seconds...

Also I always close the lid when I flush..*shudder*

[quote]@keith2> I don`t think that`s how toilets work[/quote]

That`s not specifically how they work, but it`s how Newtonian physics works. Since the flushed water is travelling at a negligable proportion of the speed of light, Newtonian physics applies extremely well.

So yes, flushing with the cover up will result in a mist of the contents of the bowl being vigourously sprayed around the room. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Forcing water down into the bowl, i.e. flushing, will result in an equal force upwards. That force is more than enough to propel small droplets up out of the bowl at various angles and quite some way up into the air.

You`re missing the point. The issue is not the placement of a piece of plastic. It`s whether or not men should be required to inconvenience themslves to always ensure that it is placed for the convenience of women. It`s the inequality and the assumption of entitlement that`s the issue. The toilet seat is trivial. The attitude is not.

No, it is not really that taxing to check the position of the toilet seat and move it is required.

So why are you arguing that men should have to do it every time and women should never have to do it? Do you think women are so much less capable than men?

Do you not see how irrational you are being when you argue that men should always check and move so that women never have to and then make that comment about it being so taxing for men? You very rarely see a man demanding that the toilet seat is always left up. It`s very rarely men saying that it`s too taxing for them.

If you think it isn`t taxing, why can`t you do it without complaining, *like almost every man does*?

You have just argued that it`s common courtesy to require men to do something gross so that women don`t have to.

Have you ever heard of a concept called "sexual equality"? Or perhaps a related concept called "treating women as adults, like men, and not as children"?

Gendered chivalry is mutually exclusive with sexual equality.

Any woman can feel free to want special treatment for being a woman, but just don`t expect me to like you as much.

If you support sexual equality and also like those bits of gendered chivalry involving a man giving special treatment to a woman, the only way you can resolve the discrepency is by also liking women giving special treatment to men in the same way.

In other words, if men are to behave as medieval gentlemen towards women, equality is only possible if women are to behave as medieval ladies towards men. You want that? I

i) Apart from the ones that hit the underside of the lid, which is a lot of them.

ii) I`d rather have them sprayed out sideways at shin height, mostly onto the floor, than all over the bathroom.

It`s not perfect, but it`s better.

how about we all put both lids down so when you flush, your bathroom won`t get the fine pee/poo mist your toilet shoots when you flush that coats everything.
now with that being said, if you leave the toilet seats up when u flush, yer using pee/poo to brush your teeth and comb your hair.
public bathrooms = no cover lid = piss/shat everywhere

But men also need to use it down some of the time. So the seat is used more when it`s down than when it`s up! So I say: men, put it down.

The only reason I complain when the lid doesn`t get put down is when it`s at my house. I have two dogs, and they like to get in and drink the toilet water. (That`s beyond me, but there you have it.) If I`m at someone`s house and I use their bathroom, I leave it the way I find it. Then again I`m one of those rare guests who exhibits common courtesy.

Not sure if it`s been said but, personally, I don`t pee without checking to see if the seat`s up, so I don`t buy the prospect that women don`t check to make sure it`s down. A check is worth the effort to avoid the worst-case assumption either way, no? Besides, just don`t pee in pitch blackness and checking is even easier.

Having said that, I keep the seat and lid down because I have small children ... and thirsty cats. *shudder*

Good rule.

When I lived with my last girlfriend, I always left just the seat down because she liked it that way and I didn`t mind either way, so I did it to please her. She didn`t *expect* me to do so. If she had, it would have been an issue. Not the toilet seat - that`s a trivial thing. The expectation that someone else always puts themselves out for your convenience - that`s not a trvial thing.

That was before I realised that of course Newton`s laws of dynamics apply to flushing.

I would imagine when its like, in the middle of the night and they groggily go to the bathroom, or when the light isn`t turned on. I havent had this problem before so I can live with it not being put down, but it`s pretty grody to see pee on the toilet seat. >.> So yeah, much like Lerie said, clean up after yourself when you take a leak.

Not entirely - you can suffer illness or death as a result. It`s just that your immune system will usually deal with it before you get ill. Not always, though.

Besides, brushing your teeth with a clean toothbrush must be more effective than using one with drops of pee and specks of poo on it.

It occurs with women who are so utterly convinced that things should be arranged for their convenience that they don`t even bother to check whether or not they are - they have such a massive sense of entitlement that they demand and assume that other people will always arrange things for their convenience and will be angry if anyone doesn`t do so. It`s a staggering arrogance.

I always put the seat down and close the lid before flushing, because I understand basic Newtonian physics and I don`t want droplets of the contents of the toilet sprayed around my bathroom.

Well, the way I see it, guys have to put it up to use it. Girls then have to put it down to use it. Same amount of work. I agree with this pic if its a toilet shared by both genders. BUT if you`re using a female`s toilet and you`re a guy, put it back down. If you`re using a male`s toilet and you`re a chick, put it back up. Never understand the huge problem.

With the lid down both genders will have to bend over to lift, so that`s fair I suppose. Plus there`s mmill928`s point about presentation. And with lid down there`s no fishing out items accidently dropped in. And who wants to walk in and see poo marks? Not I. And I live with people who leave poo marks.

The only issue I have with it is the males in my house never clean the underside of the bowl after they pee. They keep it up, pee on it -__- I mean it seems like they actually mean to aim for the seat and not the bowl. Then they leave it up and expect me or my mother to touch that thing. And clean it! I outta smack my father and brother for that. That and, when I first wake up I`m often very groggy and don;t always look at the seat.

Our policy is you put down the seat AND the lid every time. that is the only thing that is truly "fair". I hate to hear a woman complain about a guy putting the seat down when she is done but not be willing to put the lid down when she is.

I just wish guys would either wait the extra 20-30 seconds for a urinal to open up or put the seat up when urinating in a public toilet instead of leaving it down and pissing all over the seat.

Lid up, no residual fecal odors than if you had to raise it.

*Lid down: reduces the range of expelled airborne fecal matter particles when you flush.*

This! When you flush the contents become aerosolized and spread around your bathroom settling on things such as your toothbrush lower the seat :)

Mythbuster proved that it doesnt make any difference whether the lid is up or down you will always brush your teeth with poo, and the amount of bacteria particles released is almost the same up or down. I just leave the seat down and piss a little on it just to piss off my wife. you will never hear her argue the up or down point again though.

In the same way you`d cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze.

It`s all fun and games until the girl falls in the toilet. Then it`s hilarious.... Until she comes at you with a toilet plunger screaming bloody murder.

It would be wise to put the seat/lid down after using the toilet. When you flush, particles fly into the air and could land on your toothbrush.

You want to brush your teeth with bits of poo?

I agree with junkaddy... It`s all about closing the lid. Leaving the toilet just open is gross.

My son and I both close the lid when we`re done. That way everyone`s doing the same amount of work, and everyone knows what to expect when they walk through the door. Plus, I think it`s gross to walk into the bathroom and see the pot standing open, no matter how clean it is.

Men can do what they want with the seat as long as they clean the loo!

Yep. My boyfriend leaves it up when he uses it, and I leave it down when I use it. Seems fair to me :P

My rule with the guys I live with: If you can`t aim, you lift and lower seat.

Atleast we can finally get rid of all that unnecessary lifting and lowering of toilet seats. Think of the tens of seconds you could save!

meh, they forgot to mention the con of leaving it open: animals are drawn to drinking from it if you own any that arent caged.

Women need the seat down for #1 and #2; men need it down for #2. 2 to 1. Deal with it.

I don`t see how this is fair to both genders, the first two arguments apply to men only. Stupid.
