Weenie Roast

Men of the Modern World - Beware! All those hours spent dutifully downloading porn, battling the mythic underworld and shopping for a new couch on Craigslist may, in fact, singe your willie to the (debatable) detriment of the species.

Turns out, balancing your smoking hot laptop on the family jewels may not be the best thing for one's 'nads. Cooked sperm, anyone?

Apparently, the heat from the machine causes an increase in 'scrotal temperature' - which is a great name for a band, btw - and boils the little buggers until a tapping an egg is the last thing on their highly-focused lil' minds. If that doesn't scare you, how about having your penis aflame? Medical journals are full of crazy stuff like this.

I can already see the right wing PSA campaign on this one: "Save a Child - Use a Table!"

Cool..I would totally date a guy that uses a laptop over a guy that uses a desk top for this reason alone!

It could be the male birth control that everyone's been waiting for!

Good find, CB :-)

Common sense - of which it is generally agreed I have very little - told me a long time ago that leaving a smoldering-hot computer on the 'nads for any period of time couldn't possibly lead to anything good.

LOL! I love, love, love that last line! Cool! Someone funny to read!

Of course, this excess heat transfers back to the laptop and causing more heat. There is a "fry your motherboard" pun somewhere. I can't find it!
