"Laptop Wi-Fi Said To Nuke Sperm, But Caveats Abound"

"The digital age has left men's nether parts in a squeeze, if you believe the latest science on semen, laptops and wireless connections."

"In a report in the venerable medical journal Fertility and Sterility, Argentinian scientists describe how they got semen samples from 29 healthy men, placed a few drops under a laptop connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi and then hit download.

Four hours later, the semen was, eh, well-done.

A quarter of the sperm were no longer swimming around, for instance, compared to just 14 percent from semen samples stored at the same temperature away from the computer."
