Unca Cecil –
A few things to consider about this old topic, recently given new life on the website:
1. "Three times readers have sent me this question in the space of four months. You people really have to start getting out of the house." If they're curious about public toilet seats, they must have been out of the house. 2. Let's not demonize this half of the gene pool -- we're just as we were made. Some of us splash more than others, and some of us make an effort to clean up, regardless of where we are. 3. What about the seats in women's rest rooms? I assume they're the same shape, for the purpose of saving money, or for "easier access to the plumbing" (for tampons and such). then again, it could be different, just as it is with men's and women's shirts -- one buttons from the left, the other from the right.
Regards and respect for your giant brain,
