Toilet seat up or down?

These are some of the important questions in life. The Way Women See It If I didn't have you in my life, I would never have to bring the toilet seat down. If I forget to check that it's down, I'll end up sitting in toilet water. Men could pee sitting down, if they wanted to. You are already getting free sex, it's the least you can do. The Way Men See It If I didn't have you in my life, I would (almost) never have to put the toilet seat down. 9 times out of 10 when I go to the toilet it's to urinate.

The Tipping Point

I just finished reading the Tipping Point and started thinking. I realized that a site like Good Reads , is a place for " mavens ", people who love books come there and tell others what books they should read.

It also made me realize that Good Reads needs more work on developing their network. Make it easier to find others that have the same interests as you do. Also from my work on orkut I realize that competition is very powerful. You see that your friends have 300 'friends' and you feel inadequate, and work to build up your list of friends. The same could happen to books, you see someone with 100 books that they have reviewed and you start wondering what's wrong with you. You start buying, and reading more books - and giving opinions about these books.
