Toilet Seat Lid Up or Down?

Good Questions

Q: After reading the survey on which way to hang toilet paper, I realized I have a much more pressing issue. I'm from New England but I now live in California. When I was growing up, we always left toilet seat cover down when toilet was not in use, so that seems normal to me. In Los Angeles, however, it seems like everyone leaves the seat cover up when the toilet's not in use (which seems gross to me). Note to anyone who is going to say, "If this is your most pressing issue, you need to get a life!": Yeah, I know.
