10 best reasons to put the toilet seat down, in no particular order:
1. Your DW is like Lucy from the Peanuts cartoon as she closes her fist, one finger at a time, while counting.
2. Your daughters are the same as DW
3. It makes you seem like a thoughtful guy (in reality, you're afraid of the Lucy scenario)
4. You don't want to hear about it for a month.
5. You truly are thoughtful
6. Your DW is the main cook and you want your meals edible
7. Your DW is the laundry expert of the house, and you don't want starch in your shorts, or Tabasco Sauce
8. She sleeps with you, and if you leave the lid up, that's all she'll do with you, is sleep.
9. She takes great pleasure in announcing your inability to put the lid down to all of her female friends, and you know that they will plot something to get even.
10. She's not above hiding your rifle, or bow, or boat keys, or motorcycle keys, etc.
So give me all of the reasons you put the lid down. Men of DC, give it up.
