"Want higher quality sperm? Avoid bacon."
I kid you not - this was in an email I received this morning. And here's the article it linked to, which summarises a study that found that men who eat higher quantities of processed meat have lower sperm counts. And deep in the depths of the article, there's a thing that says cod makes your sperm healthier.
The more you knew..
Because I'm 12 and I know it'll make Happy happy.
Those of you who've been around here a while know that it's a reasonably regular occurrence when talking about tools, to end up in the gutter complete with references to emasculators and ball peen hammers. Now, I don't actually have an emasculator (I do have an elastrator though!), but I have a ball peen hammer. Here it is:
I inherited it from my Mum - if you look closely you can see 'Noreen's Hammer' pokerworked on the handle. This is because my Dad was old-fashioned enough to believe that All Your Tools Are Belong To Me Because Man *gruntgrunt* - well, actually he wasn't like that but he did have a habit of nicking off with Mum's tools and then claiming they were his, so she got into the habit of labelling them. Yes, her name was actually Noreen - Val is a name she took in her 40s for reasons that are kind of embarrassing and involve numerology. Um, yes.. er.. anyway..
This one is smaller than your average peen. It's a little lightweight one for working copper, and I'm finding it perfect for putting authentic-looking dents in my plastic armour pieces that make them look as if they were shaped.. well, with a hammer.
And yes, this post exists almost entirely so that I could use the line "Let me show you my peen."
This morning's pillow talk - learning the difference between prone and supine. Because Dr Wheel has this memory thing he does every morning, and I find it vastly entertaining. Sometimes it's the flags of countries, sometimes it's how to speak Cantonese, sometimes it's the captials of African countries, sometimes it's just incomprehensible equations. And there's vocabulary. Did you know that lubricious and salubrious have meanings that are almost completely opposite to each other? I didn't. In fact I'd never even heard the world lubricious before today.
Anyway, I'd rather be supine than prone. And English is weird.
