    Men: Your Laptop Is Probably Cooking Your Testicles

    Ever wonder just how hot your balls get under your laptop? "Within 10 or 15 minutes their scrotal temperature is already above what we consider safe," says one doctor. Turns out that cooking your testicles is also bad for reproducing.

    In the journal Fertility and Sterility, researchers presented their findings of a study that hooked thermometers up to the balls of 29 men with a laptop on their knees. Dr. Yefim Sheynkin, who led the study, said that even though a man's testicles start heating up after just 10 minutes, "they don't feel it." This is bad for many reasons, but especially if you're trying to have kids. Increases in testicle temperature have been shown to lower a man's sperm count, but doctors are quick to point out that there's no evidence directly linking hot laptops and sperm production. At least not this week.

    "I wouldn't say that if someone starts to use laptops they will become infertile," Dr. Sheynkin told Reuters. But he adds, "the scrotum doesn't have time to cool down" which, besides sounding awful, is also very, very bad for your health. And if you think that stacking some pillows between your sac and your computer might help, think again: "It doesn't matter what pad you use. You can put a pillow beneath your computer and it still won't protect you."

    Basically it's all bad news here. But Dr. Sheynkin has one little bit of advice — use a desk, or if you insist on putting your computer on your lap, make sure you air out your balls from time to time to avoid "scrotal hyperthermia." Will do, Doc.

    Well, let's say it --- which sane man has their laptop actually in their lap for longer than ten minutes a day. In the past four or five months, I can recall using my laptop in my lap twice:

    Once to write an important e-Mail the other day whilst sitting in the bus, which took me about 20 minutes. The other time was in June when I had to check up train times after figuring I'd miss the scheduled one for my weekend out due to a queue getting into town.

    The other times, I do often carry it around with me, and it has been known that I can sometimes take my laptop to an evening out during the week; or if I have to copy stuff across to the PC of the little venue in town, however I usually use it at the table, simply take advantage of its increased portability.

    What remains to be asked though is, how bored must a scientist be to conduct a study like this in the first place? That's something we usually hear with the pre-sentence: "British scientists have discovered..." and know to shrug, shake our heads and laugh.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I never have my labtop in my lap so I'm not worried.

    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.
