Great balls of fire!

Junk science alert.

In a groundbreaking study on fertility, a team of researchers discovers that men who balance hot laptop computers on their laps have warmer balls.

More research needed...

More details of the research findings here

Even without turning the laptop on, the scrotal temperature rose by 2.1 degrees Centigrade when the young men sat with their thighs together to balance the computer on their lap.

When they switched it on the temperature rose -- by 2.8 degrees C on the right side and 2.6 degrees C on the left.

Publishable research certainly seems to have changed since I was at university.
