Do you leave the case open or snap it shut?

Whenever I watch a movie I leave the keepcase open until I'm done then I put the disc back in and close it. I just see no reason to have to open the case twice. Anyone else?

I like to close the case then place it in the orignal shrinkwrap then drive it over to the store where I purchased it and place it on the shelf until I am done watching the movie.

If I bought it online I just put it in the shrink wrap and then put it in the envelope it arrived in and place it in my mailbox.

I like to open the case, remove the disk, dip the case in liquid nitrogen, smash it with a hammer, and spend the duration of whatever is playing trying to put it together.

In the amount of time it took you to start, type, and then edit this thread, you could have opened and closed 30 keepcases. I question your time management skills...

I throw the case away when I take the dvd out. Later I'll toss it onto a spindle. I am way too indecisive to deal with these critical decisions so I think outside the box.

I snap the case shut.

Not only that, but I put an AOL cd in it while I'm the DVD so the prongs don't expand while the DVD is out of it. And I always return the DVD case to shelf in its spot so it doesn't get dusty and the other cases don't tip over.

Then I wash my hands exactly nine times, flick the light switch on and off six times, and walk around my chair in a counterclockwise circle three times before i sit down in it. And I then enjoy the movie.

I put the case in the dishwasher and take the oppurtunity to clean it while I'm watching a movie. Everybody says I have the cleanest cases in town!

I like to smell my cases when they aren't in use. It turns me on.

Sometimes open. Sometimes closed. I'm such a flip-flopper.

The sad thing is, I'm actually going to think about this now the next time I watch a movie.

It depends on the feng shui of the room I'm in.

I like to close the case....

...and I hold it in my hands the whole time so I can keep reminding myself of the movie on screen.

No, there's nobody else. Open it twice? Can't you open it in the same motion you use to pick it up? It takes no extra energy or actions.

You realize that if you leave it open, 2 hours worth of dust will accumulate inside the case, right?! That's why I close mine.
