Economists created a math model to show that it’s okay to leave the toilet seat up.
The model found the best way to minimize effort is to simply leave the seat in the position you’ve used it.
A guy will have to lift the seat each time he urinates but not when he goes number two…. and the woman will have to lower it each time she urinates but not if the man has pooped before her.
