My advice: Ladies: Look before you leak.

This, of course, from the Larry side of the below equation.
I'm with Larry on this one. I don't recall anything in my owner's manual about putting the seat back down after use of the toilet. I distinctly recall where it said that my warranty was null and void if I failed to lift the seat before using, though!

I mean, isn't this something like a guy zipping his pants up too quickly before his gear is stowed? How many times are you gonna make that mistake? I'd think that once finding one's self wedged into the bowl with the tepid water lapping at one's more sensitive parts would be more than enough. They wipe the thing down with paper afterwards in the dark. One presumably would think that the seat is larger and easier to find under the same conditions.

Men and their remotes

Long ago, in a remote time and a remote place, a gentleman named Adam sat in a reclined position on a large branch of a tall tree surveying his domain and protecting his family, his wife whose name was Adamka, as were all ladies of this ancient time and his only child, Anuth.

Adam was a troglodyte, a cave dweller. His chief worry was the Mershall, known in our time as a saber-toothed tiger. Many Adams performed this same service for their families. All men were Adam – they hadn’t thought up individual names, it didn’t seem important at the time.

Any time any Adam would see a Mershall, he would call loudly from his high perch, Anuth, Adamka – MERSHALL! And Anuth and Adamka would run and hide, Unfortunately for Adam, the Saber-toothed tiger could hear very well and also had the ability to climb trees. Adam, for a saber-toothed tiger, was another name for lunch.

It came to pass that a cosmic ray, generated from some distant star, streaked into our solar system, and passed through a gonad at just the precise moment to cause a particular genetic anomaly which resulted in a child, an Adam in this case, to be conceived with a particular tendency which helped insure himself and his family a Darwinian advantage over other Adams in the area. It seems that this particular Adam did not like to yell all that much. So as he grew into an adult and began a family and climbed into his reclining position in a tree to protect his family, he took with him an exceedingly long stick with which he prodded Adamka and Anuth each time he saw a Mershall. He and his family survived and had many offspring, who each also had many offspring.

Over the course of many generations, his line survived, up until today.

Which, of course, explains why we men today, reclining in our easy chairs, treat our remotes much as Adam treated his long stick, making jabbing motions with it and muttering quietly, Anuth Adamka Mershall.

So, ladies, remember, as we men mutter and wield the remote as if we were prodding someone with a stick, that we are only obeying ancient genetic compulsions designed to protect you and our offspring.

zeehag - got to agree there - the poem reads:

In this land of sun and fun
A gentleman sits for number one!

Zeehag, if you haven't provided a "kneeling board" in your head, you've been remiss. Gentlemen don't sit or stand to pee in the head. They kneel in a kneeling board.

And if the head isn't mounted transversely--all bets are off, most marine heads are mounted to the hull instead of the bulkhead, and that's simply inexcuseable design error.

i learned to place a sacrificial cheap white towel at the base of my pissoir----saves a world of hurt--my garden desin=gn has a pissoir mounted not against a hull or a bulkhead but slightly inboard of the hull....i am sailing with a friend who has a transversely mounted one---the man who taught me how to sail was a tallshipman--merchant marines--graduate of kings point--and was in last tallships sailing class in navy--if sitting was good enough for him, i see nothing wrong with men at sea seated to use pissoir!!!--or peeing overboard.....LOL.....

Had the opposite problem with my mother. She thinks that turning up the thermostat will make the air comming out of the grill warmer.

There are SO MANY things I could say here, but even if I was right I'm still wrong! My wife has been fighting breast cancer since April 2, 2008 and by the GRACE OF GOD beat it. During this time her hair fell out, she stayed sick, MOODY doesn't even begin to describe her. She lost one boob and to add insult to injury the chemo put her into menopause! Now you tell me that I have 5 more years of mood swings? I'm the one who needs the medication! As for the thermostat let's just say the Admiral can put it anywhere she DAMN WELL WANTS! As for the toilet, lets just say seat down, lid down, flushed, or sleep outside. As for the Hot Flashes aka (power surge) Let me describe it the way she does. (15 min of deleted explicatives) You (15 more min of deleted explicatives) and that's FINAL!!! Truth be told everyone has little things that set them off and women in general seem to have more of them. I have found a little kindness goes a long way. Either help the gals out a little bit or pay the consequences. As my grandpa once put it "Maverick the sooner you reallize you are nothing more than an old yellow curr dog full of burrs the sooner you will get along with women."

Having lived through 'mental-pause' I can assure you there is light on the other side. Things really do get better.
