I still fail to see that this is a problem

LOL - This post went from a drunk girl being burned by a laptop, to men talking about sperm... Scary!!!

Actually, I wanted to update you all on the latest developments in this story. It was actually on the local, Connecticut News Channel 8. They were saying that the burns were caused by the battery. They said she had the power cord plugged into the laptop, which recharges the battery while you use it. Well, they believe it was a bad battery because not only did it burn her, but it set her bed on fire too. (Something I didn't know about when posting this.)

INteresting huh?

I wonder if this thing was rigged with a bomb to kill the father?

lol yeah it's a plus, but even a couple degrees can kill off those millions which in advertantly could make it real hard to actually get them pregnant since sometimes even with 400 hundred million of them going around it still doesn't manage to make it all the way.

For the whole cell-phone cancer arg...I'm not saying I deny the realities of cell-phones, but the cancer panic hasn't had much ground lately. Firstly, cell phones are built a heck of a lot cleaner and better than those brick phones way-back-when. Also, if cell-phones really did seriously increase chances of getting brain cancer, by now there would be millions of people with brain cancer.

It's Fermi's Paradox for cell-phones.
