Decent, marginally, responses so far.  Keep it clean though, or off to Grok This it goes.

I'm being nice, having a full belly from Claim Jumper's family size lasagne.  For once, store bought lasagne that isn't all watery or overly wet!  I'll have to keep that in mind for when I'm craving lasagne again.  I won't even attempt to answer the age old question of why food from a frozen entree never looks like the picture on the box.  While studying Dietetics back in the early 90's, I learned of a thriving trade: culinary cosmotology, or how to make 'food' look good in pictures, even if it's un-eatable, such as photo shots of ice-cream, which is almost entirely composed of pure lard....doesn't melt that quickly under hot lights yessee.

I don't think they're marginal, Ali... toilet humor (heh-heh), but not marginal.

So - ladies, what you're saying is that we (the men) should have the presence of mind (something you rarely credit us with in the first place) to drop the seat in the middle of the night when done, yet you (the women) suggest this only so you don't have to drop it (once more, far from hardest from the energy expenditure point of view) prior to usage?

hmmm... do I hear the ever-feared thud-thud of UNFAIR EXPECTATIONS bouncing off the darkened bathroom walls???

I have a suggestion , on the subject of comodal seat preparation...
Perhaps the ladies should leave the seat up after usage, and gentlemen leave it down?

Wouldn't that be a fair compromise?

No, I think we should continue to do it the same way we have since Mr. Crapper invented the darn thing. I'll leave it up and she can leave it down.

There are more important things to argue about, like where did SHE leave MY tv remote

Which brings up another question ...
Why do men (possibly some women do this too)insist on flipping throught the channels at the speed of sound until your eyes are crossed? Then they turn to you and announce..."There's nothing on tonight."

Which makes me even more steamed because what he should have said, "There isn't anything on tonight." Phew!!

The Barenaked Ladies asked this before and I'll ask it again.

"Why do they have pre-wrapped sausages but they don't have pre-wrapped bacon?"

Guess it doesn't matter. I've been a vegetarian for over a year now!

Ahh, the remote...

we got Tivo about 5 months ago and life will never be the same again!

prior to T-evil (as my SO designates it) i rarely watched television. but with the ability to browse through the Dish guide (yes, she complains it's at "light speed" heh) and flag all my favorite and, truthfully, not-so-favorite-but-still-possibly-interesting shows for recording, be it 4 in the morning or while i'm at work... well, sometimes i think i spend more time browsing through the options than i do actually watching the shows...

oh and they do have pre-wrapped bacon... though be careful what kind you buy - some of it's rather nasty...

Just what is pre-wrapped bacon?
We up here in the cold country maybe call it something else?

Bacon that has already been cured and cooked and awaits only a gentle touch of warmth from mankind's most excellent (at least from a guy's point of view) invention - the microwave!

2. Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?
