>>>Not to be too dramatic, but we couldn't live without our Wi-Fi connections. That could be our downfall, because as it turns out, future generations of young geeks may not be able to live with our Wi-Fi connections. While the proliferation of wireless hot spots is generally regarded as a Very Good Thing overall, a new study suggests that "a laptop connected wirelessly to the Internet on the lap near the testes may result in decreased male fertility." Basically, guys, all that YouTube browsing could be killing off your little soldiers.

A team of Argentine scientists plopped some sperm underneath a Wi-Fi-running laptop for four full hours, Reuters reports. After that time, the Wi-Fi'd sperm showed significantly higher damage and death rates than the sperm in a control sample stored in similar atmospheric conditions – minus the Wi-Fi-rocking laptop, of course. Sperm plopped near a notebook that wasn't connected to a Wi-Fi network weren't damaged, either.

...That's gunna leave a mark :whistle:

Perhaps the lesson here is that we should be careful where we "plop" our sperm.

Beer certainly is a factor but I think Einstein's famous quote re: infinity/human stupidity is at least 80% of the equation...well, the stupidity part anyhoo :whistle:
