Idea CWP#1 - The Toilet Poll

This is the beginning of Crumb's Weekly Poll! :partying:

Every Wednesday I will post a new poll. The questions will be hard hitting and get right to the point with no funny business. :D



Rule number one of CWP is that you don't post "I don't see the poll." :glare:

Default Re: CWP#1 - The Toilet Poll

In the hall and downstairs bathrooms, seat and lid closed because there someone likes to drink out of open toilets.

Bathroom off the bedroom, seat down, lid usually up, although I'm not a fan. It's a really heavy lid, though, and makes a lot of noise, and that door stays closed so that Matlock isn't tempted when he's walking past.

So it is arguably a myth that, when you flush a toilet, it aerosolizes (i.e. weaponizes) whatever you are flushing. Myth or no, though, seeing open lids makes me think about that, which I don't like to do. If that one toilet lid were not so loud, I would totally adopt a closed lid policy on that bathroom as well.

It depends. If I am in a men's restroom, I put the seat up so the filthy inconsiderate cretinous morons that piss all over everywhere won't piss on the seat for the next person to sit on. If I am in a gender-shared bathroom, seat remains down afterward, maybe even close the lid, if the lid was down before. Will always close the lid on composting or bucket toilets.

Or superglue.

Seat down, lid down. Habit as I had a cat that loved to get in the toilet. She was a bit unhinged, that kitty.

Not a myth! There's a reason why your toothbrush tests positive for fecal matter, er I mean why someone's toothbrush tests positive, I'm certainly not sneaking into your bathroom and messing with your toothbrush, I don't even know why you would mention that!?
(ok partially a myth, it depends on the type of toilet and how it flushes, however I've actually tested this with UV dye and high power flush toilets... toilet mist rave!)

Seat down and lid up because, even though I am a real man, I am also a real married man and Mrs. A. likes it that way (apparently she can't be bothered to check the status of the toilet seat before she sits down she and complains vociferously if she happens to sit all the way down into the toilet water. Go figure!). I have tried to tell her that she is just damn lucky to be living in a first world country where the toilets have water in them. She is not impressed.

Most of the time, I put the lid down. Otherwise, what's it there for? It just seems like the default state.

The people who owned the house before us left their soft closing toilet seats and now I'm totally used to them. We went over to one of the girl's houses recently and they have the heavy seats like lisarea's... holy shit does that make some noise slamming down :egad:

Anyway, lid closed you heathens.

Omg yes! I've gotten used to a plastic seat lid, so I go home to my Mom's with heavy porcelain lids and the soft cover slips off out of my hand and the thing goes boom, it's like "shit, I hope that didn't wake the neighbors 300 feet away! Well I guess 4am is good enough time as any to get up!"

Ever since I saw a sign in the toilet that said

"I am tired of cleaning up your spills, so gentlemen sit down to pee too!"

At a friends house, I figured that made total sense, so ever since then I sit down to pee when there are reasonable facilities for doing so.

I enjoy a Sitzpinkel every now and again. In particular, if I woke up to pee and I plan on going back to sleep, it means I don't have to stand OR turn the lights on.

Maybe it is just a quirk in my plumbing or maybe it is a function of being overweight but if I pee while I am sitting it seems that it never quite empties my bladder. If I pee while I am taking a dump I usually finish it off with a final stand up piss.
