speaker cable placement/arrangement

Hi A-goners,

I searched the arhives and couldn't find any answer to my quesiton: what is the best way to place, arrange, organize, etc. speaker cables. Should they be as straight as possible from the amp to the speakers? Should any curves or bends be at right angles or any other preferable configuration? I'll probably be buying 8 or 9 feet runs, but I could get by with 6 feet runs. What's the best way to place them?

Thanks in advance,

I'm here for "my people" as but a humble servant. I've noticed some recent ads in high end mags showing speakers in glamorous spaces near gigantic windows with diaphonous curtains and a sultry female...NO speaker wire at all. I guess if your house is that cool you just put the speakers over there hooked up to nothing so you can look at 'em and not be bothered with sound while gazing out at the pool with the aforementioned ad babe. Obviates the wire issue.
Well, Wolf; if you supply the hot babes, I'll provide the speaker wire! Diaphanous curtains optional.
