lottery clotheshorse



As I was awaiting the Mega Millions lottery drawing, where I was planning/hoping to win the $123 million jackpot, a thought occurred to me: what would I do with all that money? The answer? Anything I wanted to do! Then, I realized something. If I won $123 million I would not change my current wardrobe. Not needing to get dressed up or wear a suit, I normally wear jeans and a t-shirt. If I won the lottery and became a multi-millionaire, I would still wear the same clothes, and the same style.

I wear $14 jeans from Walmart, $20 shoes from Walmart, and $7 t-shirts, from a local convenience store, amazon, or a cheap local department store. On my head, I wear a cheap baseball-style hat, which I buy on amazon or at CVS. When the weather is cold, I wear a leather jacket (see my photo upper right), which I also bought at CVS, years ago, for under $30. And I wear a watch, a $22 watch, which I originally bought at Target and, years later, purchased an exact replica replacement on amazon.

I look good in clothes, even cheap clothes, but I am not a clotheshorse. If/when I win a ton of money in the lottery I would not change my look, I would not become a clotheshorse. Even though I would well be able to afford $400 jeans and $400 t-shirts I wouldn't do it, I have no need to be "uber fashionable". And, no, I would not buy a $10,000 Rolex either. At this stage of life, I don't want to dress "fancy", I just want to be comfortable. And $123 million would make me comfortable. Very comfortable.




pizza birds



As I was walking around outside, I noticed a bird, a small sparrow, picking at a large piece of pizza crust on the ground. The bird was enjoying the meal. He seemed to be enjoying the taste of the pizza crust. He was actively picking at it. As I walked near, the bird flew away, even though I told him to stay and enjoy his pizza crust meal. A few minutes later I returned again and the bird was back, snacking away on the pizza crust on the ground. Once again, as I neared, the bird flew away. I was sad. Sad that I, a human, had interrupted the bird's feeding. I hoped the bird would return, and finish his meal.

That pizza crust - that litter - could have fed a lot of non-humans that live near my residence, non-humans such as birds, squirrels, coyotes, raccoons, skunks, bees, butterflies, snakes, deer, and maybe even a mountain lion. No, I don't know which animals like to eat pizza and which do not. I know that sparrow did!

Pizza crust litter on the ground. Human litter. Human litter being recycled, by non-humans. The thought occurred to me that, sometimes, litter might be good for the environment. It might be a good (or bad) addition to the food chain. It depends on the litter. Does that mean that the next time I eat a pizza, I will toss some crust on the ground? No. Maybe.




Los Angeles To Ban Take-Out Food



Let's ban take-out food

From MyNewsLA

Those take-out food containers of polystyrene — often called Styrofoam — would be banned in Los Angeles under a motion introduced Friday by two City Council members.

In addition to take-out containers, the material is used for numerous other manufacturing purposes, including medical devices, red drink cups for beer pong, packing materials and even surfboards.

City Councilman, Paul Koretz, introduced the motion with Councilman Bob Blumenfield. “Because polystyrene doesn’t biodegrade, it can absorb toxins found in the ocean, which poses a danger to marine species that mistake foam for food,” Koretz said. “The fish and wildlife are the barometer of the health of our larger environment. I’m gravely concerned that the food chain will continue to grow ever more toxic if we don’t exchange our bad habits for better ones.”

“Now more than ever, we in Los Angeles and in California must stand up and fight to protect our environment and ensure that future generations enjoy clean mountains and beaches,” Blumenfield said.

“Polystyrene is dangerous, toxic and is an unnecessary product. It is our duty to protect our environment regardless of what is happening in Washington, D.C. With people like Scott Pruitt running the EPA, reversing decades of environmental progress, it is up to us to make sure that California’s beauty is protected.”



Hey, you city council clowns, leave my take-out food alone! If Styrofoam is banned, how will people be able to take away food they buy? For instance, I get take-out Chinese food weekly and it comes in a Styrofoam container. Weekly, I get a big delicious take-out tuna sandwich (and a side of potato salad) at my local deli, and it comes in a Styrofoam container.

If the Los Angeles City Council bans Styrofoam, how will I (and millions of others) take away take-out food? In many cases, there IS no alternative for these Styrofoam containers!!! And the out-of-touch f-ing city council clowns think it's an "unnecessary product"??? Obviously, these clowns don't get take-out.

The stupid crazy L.A. City Council clowns, in their overly-zealous environmental frenzy to ban Styrofoam, are interfering with MY food chain. Leave my take-out food alone!




Wishy washy



From the BBC

How to wash your hands - according to the experts

"Washing your hands properly should take about as long as singing Happy Birthday twice (about 20 seconds)

Wet hands and apply enough soap to cover the whole surface of the hand

Rub palms together with fingers interlaced

Rub each palm over the back of the other hand with interlaced fingers

Rub between fingers on each hand

Rub backs of fingers (interlocked)

Rub around each thumb

Rub both palms with finger tips and then rinse with warm or cold water

Dry your hands well, ideally with a disposable towel

Use a disposable towel to turn off the tap"



After many many years of washing my hands now I find out I was doing it wrong! I always simply wet my hands, soaped them up, rubbed my hands together for a bit, and rinsed them off. Then dried them. I had no idea washing your hands was so complicated and had so many steps. I may have to take a class: Hand Washing 101.




White bread is good



Newsflash! White bread is as nutritious as wheat bread.

From Independent.co.uk

Processed white bread is often shunned by health experts due to its low nutritional value. Sales of 'unhealthy' processed white bread have plummeted by 75 per cent since 1974.

"Researchers at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science monitored the gut bacteria and levels of fat, cholesterol, glucose and essential minerals such as calcium and iron in 20 healthy people. Half the participants were given a higher-than-average amount of fresh whole-wheat sourdough bread to consume for a week, and the others were given the same portion of processed, packaged white bread.

“The initial finding, and this was very much contrary to our expectation, was that there were no clinically significant differences between the effects of these two types of bread on any of the parameters that we measured,” said the study’s senior author Professor Eran Segal"



For decades we've been told that white bread is not nutritious, is not as good for you as wheat bread or other bread. And now they find out it's not true? That means, for decades, I've been depriving myself of tasty sandwiches - on tasty white bread - for nothing. Depriving myself, thanks to all the stupid health experts, who were wrong - again. Now, excuse me, I'm going to go to the supermarket, buy some bread, and make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich ... on WHITE bread.




Eek, a mouse!



I was attacked in my house by a mouse. I was attacked by a Logitech computer mouse.

Here's what happened

My wireless Logitech mouse stopped working. Suddenly, it was dead. I figured it was the battery. I turned the mouse over and proceeded to replace the battery.


Ouch! I got cut. The mouse bit me! I went to take off the battery cover and somewhere, around the battery compartment, was a sharp area, a dangerous area. It cut me! It hurt. My finger started to bleed. I washed the cut with soap and water and put triple antibiotic ointment on the cut.

Soon, my finger started to noticeably swell up, And it still hurt. I became worried that it was becoming infected.


This was a huge problem as I cannot tolerate taking antibiotics; they upset my stomach horribly. The last time I had to take an antibiotic, I tried 3 different ones. I could not tolerate any of them and my stomach was messed up - for 2 months.

I looked at my injured finger. I became upset. I became upset at the mouse. And the company who made it. How dare a company make a mouse that injures you, that cuts you, when you try to change the battery!?

Logitech dominates the market. It is difficult to find any other mouse maker than fits the hand so well. And now my Logitech mouse bit the hand that feeds it. I have used a Logitech mouse for decades, replacing them when they wore out. No problems. Now, their latest mouse, the M325, bit me.

I was not only concerned about my own injury, I was also concerned that other people might be injured in the same way. I decided to contact Logitech and tell them about their defective product and my resulting injury. They emailed back and asked what I would like them to do about it. I responded,

"1. I would like Logitech to fix the design of their mouse; to not have sharp areas in and around the battery compartment.

2. I would also like monetary compensation for my cut finger. I am an author (22 books) and a blogger and the cut finger makes it painful to type and/or use the mouse. It has not yet healed and may also be infected. I think $500 is reasonable compensation for my pain and suffering."

They responded and said they would call me. They asked for my phone number and the best time to call me. I gave it to them. It took them 12 days to contact me. My Logitech mouse injury issue is not resolved.

At this point I am not happy with Logitech, their mouse that caused me harm, and their lackadaisical response to my injury. As a result, I hereby vow to never again buy another Logitech mouse. And, no, I am no longer using the mouse that bit me; I packed it away, as evidence, and bought a new mouse, a different brand.

Need a new mouse? Gonna buy a Logitech? Proceed at your own risk.




stupid movies



For the past few years I have noticed that Hollywood has been making only a few good movies - and lots of stupid ones. I blame millennials. Really? Yes. Prior to younger generations taking over the writing, directing and producing films we used to see good movies, with good character development, interesting plots and watchable scenes. No longer.

From Thrillist.com here are the plots of some of the major movie releases in the first few months of 2017.

Tramps
a lanky Russian kid (Tanner) who ditches his fast-food register job for a one-off thieving gig, with his driver, an aloof strip club waitress looking for the cash to restart her life.

Kedi
A cat movie. Infiltrating the free-roaming feline population of Istanbul, Kedi squats down to see the world from the eyes of mama cats, young fur balls, and fuzzy loners.

Raw
A sheltered vegetarian, Justine, embarking on her first year of French veterinarian school. Justine's frosh year takes a morbid turn when her upperclassman sister forces her to consume meat for the first time, unleashing an insatiable hunger.

The Lost City of Z
Turn-of-the-20th-century military man who embarks to South America to map Bolivia and cleanse his family name of scandal.

Get Out
A black guy harboring the appropriate amount of skepticism over meeting the upper-crust white parents of his girlfriend Rose. As the weekend hours pass, he stumbles into a racially charged conspiracy. Littered with one-liners and laced with tension.

Free Fire
illegal-gun-deal-by-the-docks between a group of IRA fighters, a skeezy arms dealer, and two American representatives for the respective parties, explodes into a firefight when one lower-rung goon accuses another of assaulting his sister at a bar the night prior.



Stupid movies? Did I make my point? There are few movies I have seen in the past 5-10 years that are any good. Or worth watching. I wonder why. No, I don't. Film makers are making stupid movies, way too many stupid movies. I blame millennial film makers. Apparently, they don't know what a good movie is. As a result, I have basically stopped watching or renting movies altogether, thereby reducing at least one area of disappointment.




one leg at a time



There is an old saying,"He puts his pants on one leg at a time". It means that a person who may be bigger than life, or more privileged, is still a human being just like the rest of us, just like you and me. He puts his pants on one leg at a time. The saying is wrong. I thought about it and realized that the saying "He's just like us, he puts his pants on one leg at a time" may be completely untrue.

Here's why. If you sit down, you can put your pants on TWO legs at a time. How? If you are limber, you can sit down, put your pants on the floor, open the legs straight up, and put both legs into your pants, then stand up, putting your pants on BOTH legs at the same time. Or do it while lying on your back. Or, if you're not limber but are rich (or are in a nursing home) you can have someone assist you; they can hold open your pants on the floor, let you step into them and THEN pull them up, putting your pants on two legs at a time.

So, the age-old saying, "He puts his pants on one leg at a time", making everyone the same or equal, may be incorrect, and not true. "He's NOT like us, he puts his pants on BOTH legs at a time".


As for me, I will continue to be just like you, just like everyone else, and put my pants on one leg at a time.




Stop the autoplay!



Everywhere we go online, we have to suffer from videos that start playing on their own. It's called autoplay. And it sucks! This especially happens on news media sites. ALL of them! Suddenly, on whatever site you're on, a video starts playing - all by itself - and annoys the sh-t out of you. Or scares the sh-t out of you. Or, if it's early morning or late at night, wakes someone up who is sleeping in the room.

Autoplay videos. It's f-ing forced advertising. We are FORCED to watch a video. It starts by itself? WTF? We don't get to CHOOSE to watch a video, we are FORCED to start watching a video, a video that annoyingly and suddenly starts playing automatically.

Here's a message to advertisers and media everywhere: Whenever a video starts autoplaying I ALWAYS immediately leave the site. Goodbye! And f you!


NO MORE AUTOPLAY VIDEOS!



Bentley SUV



I was driving out of a local upscale supermarket parking area when I saw this car driving in. I knew the car was something unique and special but it was a little too far away for me to see what kind of car it was. As it got closer I saw what it was. Holy Moly, it was a Bentley. A Bentley SUV! A big, beautiful black Bentley SUV. I didn't even know Bentley made an SUV!

As the vehicle approached, I looked to see who was driving. A movie star? A billionaire? It had to be one of those, or both. It was being driven by a 30 or 40-something blond lady. With a young 11 or 12-year-old boy sitting in the passenger seat. She must have picked the kid up from school. Or was taking him to soccer practice. As the vehicle drew nearer, I looked more closely at the driver. I did not recognize her. But she had to be "somebody". Somebody rich. Why do I say that? Because this Bentley SUV has a price starting at $300,000. Yes, I looked it up. $300,000 is the starting price. With all the extras you'd want to have on the vehicle, who knows how much it would cost? It would probably cost more than a big house in many places in America. WOW!

Los Angeles is the car capital of the world. And the TV, movie and music capital of the world. That being the case, it's not uncommon to see Cadillacs, Lincolns, Range Rovers, Rolls Royces, Maseratis and the occasional Ferrari or Lotus. And lots and lots of of SUV's. But I had never before seen a Bentley SUV.

The Bentley SUV. Without a doubt, the most luxurious soccer mom vehicle on the planet!




porn versus real women



"Excessive pornography viewing is likely to contribute to a risk of sexual dysfunction in men, but not women, according to new research. A panel discussion and presentation held on Friday at the 112th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association highlights results from surveys conducted on men and women about pornography viewing habits and the long-term effects on sexual health and intimate behavior.

The researchers, led by Dr. Matthew Christman, a staff urologist and program director for pediatric urology at the Naval Medical Center of San Diego, report that while pornography trivially affects women’s sex lives, an excessive habit can be ruinous to men’s psychosexual health. Essentially, many men who are really into internet porn have the potential to become disinterested in sex with a real-life partner. The researchers suggest that the more time men spend on sites such as PornHub, the less able they’ll be to connect with a partner in the bedroom. This can result in severe damage to sexual and romantic relationships and make intimacy challenging, at best.

Roughly 20 percent of men reported using porn three to five times weekly. Nearly 4 percent of men reported they preferred masturbating to pornography over having sexual intercourse with a partner. The researchers also recognized a correlation between men who used pornography frequently and those who reported lack of sexual desire and intercourse satisfaction, as well as erectile dysfunction."



I think they may have it backwards. Many men have erectile dysfunction. They tend to avoid real life sex - because they don't want to fail at it! They don't want to be unable to achieve an erection in the real life presence of the woman they want to have sex with. Non performance is embarrassing, humiliating and depressing for men. So, a lot of men turn to online porn,and masturbation instead. They avoid real life sex. Because, for whatever reason, they don't want to fail at it.

If the guy viewing porn and masturbating fails to become erect or ejaculate, nobody knows and nobody cares except him. Porn presents less performance risk. Less embarrassment. Less humiliation. In other words, men with sexual dysfunction issues may be avoiding real women, and real sex, and turning to porn instead. Maybe it's not the porn causing the intimacy issue, maybe it's the intimacy issues that causes the porn viewing.

Yes, there is Viagra and other ED drugs. Yes, men with ED ought to use them and use them safely. Yes, and if ED drugs aren't already, they should be cheaper. And covered by insurance.




misleading pizza



So, I was in my local supermarket and was in the mood for pizza for dinner. I went to the frozen food pizza section and finally chose a small DiGiorno. The picture on the package made it look tasty. Plus, the TV ads "it's not delivery, it's DiGiorno" made me decide to try that brand. I put the small frozen pizza in my shopping cart. On the way to the checkout I noticed the nutritional label on the front of the box. I had assumed that this small pizza was not too caloric, not too fatty, not too sugary. I looked at the nutritional info. 9.2 ounces. Small. Not too many calories, not too much fat content. Not too bad. Not bad at all. 340 calories, 7 grams of fat and 6 grams of sugar. I could eat that. Then I noticed, in small letters above the nutrient listing, the serving size. Per 1/2 pizza. WHAT? The serving size was half the pizza. Half a small pizza? Who eats half a small pizza? No one. EVERYONE with an appetite eats the whole 9.2 oz pizza. That meant, if I ate the whole thing (and I planned to) I would be eating DOUBLE the listed nutritional content. That would be 680 calories. 14 grams of fat. 12 grams of sugar. For someone watching their weight and watching their caloric, fat and sugar intake, THAT'S not so healthy!


The lettering for the serving size listed on the box was small. Camouflaged in the pizza picture. Easy to miss. You would also be distracted by the yummy picture of the pizza and, if you looked at the nutrition ingredients you might never notice the 1/2 pizza serving size. As far as I'm concerned, the packaging is misleading! 1/2 pizza indeed! Who eats half a small single serving frozen pizza? Nobody! Is DiGiorno trying to hide the obesity factor in their pizza? Do they want you to think you're eating healthy? What do you think?

Will I EVER buy another one of these small frozen DiGiorno pizzas? What do you think?

UPDATE: I microwaved the pizza. Then I ate it. How was it? The cheese was fairly tasteless. Bland. The crust and dough tasted like the box it came in. Was it edible? Yes. Did I eat the whole thing anyway? Yes. Was it good? No. Was it as good as delivery pizza? Not even close. Do I know good pizza? Yes, I used to live in New York City.

DiGiorno pizza is owned by Nestle.




I won the lottery!



For my birthday I played the California lottery. And won!

I played Mega Millions. The jackpot was $20 million. For my birthday I bought 5 "quick picks", for a total of $5, and one of them was a winner!

I won!

How much did I win? I won $1. I got the Mega number. ONLY the Mega number. I won $1.

So, for my birthday I won the lottery. I won $1. I spent $5 on tickets. Oh, wait a minute, that means I lost $4! Birthdays suck.




gluten-free heart attack



which may be soon

According to National Health Services, UK

"Gluten-free diet can do more harm than good for people without coeliac disease," The Independent reports, as a new study found that the "trendy gluten-free diets loved by Gwyneth Paltrow and Russell Crowe may increase the risk of heart disease".

Recently there has been increasing interest in the possible health benefits of avoiding gluten among people who do not have coeliac disease, though the long term evidence about its effects in this group is currently limited. Despite this, the gluten-free food market is reported to have made $3.5bn worth of global sales in 2016.

The current study followed more than 100,000 people from 1986 to 2012, assessing their diets and whether they had heart attacks during that time. These people did not have heart disease at the start of the study, and importantly did not have coeliac disease.

Overall, it found that once other risk factors were taken into account, people's consumption of gluten was not related to their risk of heart attack.

However, further analyses suggested that lower consumption of gluten specifically from whole grains (wheat, barley and rye) was associated with increased heart attack risk compared to higher consumption from these sources.



OMG. So trendy non-celiac gluten-free people can look forward to the illusion of eating "healthy" gluten-free foods, and having a heart attack as a result? Eat gluten-free and die? Be diet-trendy and die? And that makes sense how?




human electronic device



the future?

I am just waiting for human cell phone implants. Yes, science fiction often becomes science fact. Like Dick Tracy's radio wristwatch of the 1940's, we now have the cell phone. Soon, people will have electronic devices implanted in their bodies. And in their brains. You want to be connected? You will be, 24/7. Human electronic devices. I predict that someday all babies/young children will be implanted with electronics. Someday, everything in life will be "electronic". Everything in a person's life will be controlled via their electronic implants. Driving a vehicle is already becoming undesirable and "old school". As a result of the ever present electronic device, thinking will be a thing of the past, TV sets will become obsolete (oh, wait, they already are), schooling will be unnecessary, as all knowledge will be available in the blink of an eye (literally). Verbal communication will disappear and human vocal chords will become extinct. Human face-to-face interaction and socialization will cease to exist. Friends and mates will be replaced by lifelike robots who will cater to our every whim (hmm, now THAT sounds like a good idea!)

Welcome to the future. The future is now. The future will not be for humans, it will be for machines. It will be for electronic devices, implants and robots. It's a good thing I probably won't live to see it.




The problem everyone wants to have



I need to gain weight. I need to gain 3-5 pounds. That's a problem lots of people would love to have.

Here's what happened

I felt a little underweight so I weighed myself. I was right. I was 3-4 pounds under my usual normal and happily chosen weight. Hmm. So I ate some junk food for a couple of days. I didn't eat enough of it because I didn't really gain the 3-4 pounds I wanted to gain. I resumed my normal "healthy" food regimen. Two weeks later I weighed myself agin. I had lost another 2 pounds! What was happening? Was I sick? Was I dying? I had been eating healthy food almost every day. Why was I losing weight? I did not want to lose weight. I was starting to look too thin. Too thin? There's no such thing! As they say, "You can't be too rich or too thin." Yes, you can be too thin. You might be sick. Or dying.

Because I was eating a bit lightly and very healthily, I thought maybe I wasn't eating enough calories. I wrote down everything I usually eat on any given day. Then, I looked up the caloric content of each food. It turned out that I was eating 1,515 calories per day. I looked that up to see what it meant. What it said was that, at 1,515 calories a day, and light exercise, I would lose one pound a week. That's exactly what happened! I then looked how many calories a person of my gender, height, weight and age should be eating. I looked it up using the same SuperTracker calculator that the U.S. federal government's Department of Agriculture used. It said I should be eating 2,324 calories a day. 800 more calories! I should be eating 50% MORE calories per day! I was shocked! I thought my nutrition was proper. I thought I was eating "healthy". Turns out that eating healthy and lightly made me lose weight I didn't want to lose.

What to do? I now had a problem that everyone would like to have: I wanted to GAIN weight.

How to gain some pounds? Hmm. I did not want to eat a lot of junk food everyday. Or high fat foods. Or high sugar foods. I would gain weight but I might also shortly get clogged arteries and diabetes. Should I eat some junk food? Hell, yes. Tomorrow, I am going to have a double cheeseburger for dinner. And fries. The day after that I am going to have a ton of Chinese food. And, a day or two after that, I am going to have a foot long meatball sandwich, with Swiss cheese. But then I will stop eating like that consistently, to avoid clogged arteries, diabetes, obesity, and death. So far, I have gained 2 pounds. That's good but what to add to my diet on an ongoing basis that is reasonably healthy yet contains many calories? Here's what I found. I can't chew nuts et al (I have dentures). Peanut butter has saturated fat and not enough calories. Upon doing a lot of research, I decided on chocolate. Dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has lots of calories, is good for your heart and is VERY tasty. Yummy! And I'm also going to add a banana or two per day to my morning cereal. And, despite raising my cholesterol and sugar levels, maybe I'll add "bad" food 1-2 times a week. "Bad" food like meatball sandwiches, pizza, and, yes, more cheeseburgers. And fries.

And, hopefully, I will gain a few more pounds. And, hopefully, that will solve the problem, the problem that everyone would like to have.




porn spam for me



For the past few months I have been getting a lot of sex dating spam. Before that I wasn't getting much of it. Now, I am. I've been getting up to 50 porn dating spams a day. Today, I got 60. No, I didn't open any or look at any of the email porn pics. I do not click on any links and delete all my spams ASAP -- as they might contain viruses!

I don't know why I am getting porn/sex dating spam. I did not sign up for any porn sites or adult dating sites lately. And I certainly don't want to visit any of the porn or adult hookup sites offered in my porn spam.

The porn spam I get is both the same and different, depending on the subject line. Today I got porn and adult dating spam offering Lonely Wife Hookup, Latin Women Date Team, Naked Women Selfies, Hookup Cougars, Lonely Russian Girls, Online Viagra, and a Sex Dating Club. And, according to one subject line, I have a letter waiting from a Horny Beauty! Another subject line was: "Stay naughty with a frisky beauty".

Do I want any of this stuff? No. Do I open any of this stuff? No.

A message to spammers: "Don't bother to send me spam (especially porn/sex dating spam). Don't waste your time and money. I'm not signing up for anything you send me. I don't even bother to open your spam emails, I just immediately delete them."

UPDATE
I guess the spammers weren't listening. Today, several weeks later, I got 95 porn spams.




Toilet roll - over or under - solved



Should the roll of toilet paper on the holder be under or over? Let's put the age-old debate to rest once and for all.

It goes o-v-e-r.

Why should the toilet paper unroll outwardly, over the holder? Because guys pee standing up. When a male is peeing standing up he may need to blow his nose, or wipe his penis and, if the toilet roll unwinds under, males can't reach it. If it unrolls over, males can reach it and use it - while standing up.

As women pee sitting down, they can easily tear off the toilet paper from either under or over, it makes little difference. To us guys, it makes a BIG difference. If we have to reach the roll and it's under, we may have to bend down to reach it, and could pee on ourselves, our clothes, or drip on a surface area not in the bowl.

So, ladies, until all males start peeing sitting down, PLEASE, if you use a roller, put the toilet paper on the roller so it unrolls outwards ... i.e. OVER. Unless, of course, if no man ever uses your bathroom, then it doesn't matter.

And, no, the "over" toilet roll solution is not an assertion of male dominance. It's an assertion of convenience, common sense, and cleanliness.
