Side stand or lift stand

Every time I park my bike in the shed I wonder whether it is better to leave it on the side stand or a lift stand. Which is better? Or should I stop thinking of such mundane things and just park it and head to the beer fridge.

Oops title says "sude stand" instead of "side stand" because the beer fridge is between the shed and the computer!

When they're in the shed mine are always on a lift stand.

I remember seeing a thing about cams once and bike cams can tend to show wear on the high side as the side stand makes the oil collect at the lowest point.
Probably doesn't really make that much difference, especially with modern oils.

The opposite of success isn't failure, it's 'giving up'.
