I have seen evidence of Japanese involvement incorporating state-of-the-art technology by which means may put an end to this ongoing conflict between the male and female of the species by using voice commands and sensors.

:thumbsup: Well done! In all seriousness, that pesky 'up or down' with the toilet seat must surely cause at least minor woes in most households. Personally, I think 'down' is the perfect solution and a simple arm movement must be darn near as efficient as a voice command. Unless of course one has kitties that will only drink from the toilet bowl (ugh!!), rather than from a bowl of fresh water - in which case, one adapts to having the lid up.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

I feel that down, with the cover down also, is the "normal" position of the toilet seat/cover.

One would then raise either the cover only, or both, according to what one plans to do next regarding the usage of the toilet and return it or them to the original position upon completion of said usage.



Regarding Mara's point -

when I drink out of the toilet, I usually raise both.

Usually.

Mostly.

We have to keep ours down or our cats will try and actually drink out of it! Even though we provide the freshest water in a perfect little bowl for them...

EDIT: I can't believe that actually have equations about toilet use... :thumbsup:

I had no idea this was an issue. I would just kill for the toilet to stay clean.
