Laptops May Overheat Sperm

Attention Computer Geeks: A new study by the international journal Fertility and Sterility reveals that the heat radiating from laptops can effect male fertility. The research study (conducted by Stony Brook University in New York,) found some astonishing information. Apparently when your laptop is on for a prolonged period of time, it begins to overheat. And if its on your lap (as many lap-tops are) than so do your genitals!  After only an hour, 29 subjects with laptops on their knees raised the tempeture in their testicles more that 4 degrees!  Previous research shows that warming the scrotum more than 1.8 degrees can effect sperm count.

So next time you guys place that heated computer on your lap, remember that as good as it may feel, it's also slow-cooking your meat and potatoes - and effecting your sperm count as a result.  Nerds, techies and computer eficinatos - take extra special caution! Your sperm could be at risk! And God knows, we need your DNA to bring more brainy people into this world.  So please, for the love of this nations future, keep the laptops off your laps.
