laptops cooking your testicles, even more on dumpster diving

there was an article recently from reuters.com last month on
cooking your testicles with your laptop

maybe will stick with a desk top instead of a laptop

use a laptop all day long in my practice
take it with me when am seeing patients
usually have it on my lap most of the time when typing
office notes and doing prescriptions

my wife she when she reads this will probably request
that use only the desk top at work

apparently putting the laptop in your lap (in a study
that was done recently) increased the scrotal temperature by
2.5 degrees celsius
this is enough to potentially affect  sperm production
in past studies a rise of temperature of 1 degree celsius
was shown to affect sperm production

(hey maybe this is the new form of birth control that
women having been hoping for for years   birth control by dell
maybe could use your flex medical card to buy your next laptop)

even when the legs were spread apart the testicles still
warmed up but took twice as long

can see that now men sitting working on their laptop with
their legs spread apart to protect their package

not a pretty sight

am getting more and more comments on the dumpster diving
surely this many people arent doing it
well will admit have taken stuff out of a dumpster before

according to a relative and reader of this blog
apparently there is a form of dumpster diving called
curbside recycling -its treasure hunting the night before
the trash trucks come

according to the relative there  is an etiquette to follow

if the item is a high dollar item you have to ask the neighbor
the item has to be on the opposite side of the sidewalk
(ie on the curb not in their yard) not on their porch or
in their garage

when the relative is through using the item then he places
it on the curbside for recycling or donates it to a local charity

listed recycled items in the past  are a hedge trimmer,
a motor cycle, and a grill
all were repaired and used and then recycled

alway wondered why he always had a truck

this is ultimate recycling
this is ultimate green living

  1. Hey, do yo know why the comments don't post for everyone to see? maybe you could ask your webmaster :)

  2. We often donate to the Salvation Alley. It's amazing what is one person's trash is another person's treasure. Anecdotal evidence indicates that with bed bugs making a comeback, people are more careful about discerning what is treasure.
    Thanks for the blog. Really enjoy it.

  3. cooking testicles?! Love it! You have a lovely sense of humor.
