Spermbike Revolutionizing Transport of Semen

Posted: November 11, 2011 by Keith Stone in medicine, Seattle, traveling

If you want to want to help out those who need a little assistance having a baby, but are too lazy to go down to the fertility clinic, you’re in luck! The Seattle Sperm Bank has developed a bike that can hold 30 semen samples in a special vacuum container cooled by liquid nitrogen. Also, it looks like a sperm.  Spokesman Gary Olsem claims it helps awareness for the need of sperm donations.

There’s already a Spermbike in Copenhagen but I’d like to see more because what we really need on the roads are more Spermbikes. When I asked our resident Seattle native DP Animal about it, he noted that he was happy that Shawn Kemp was keeping busy during retirement. Something has to pay for his donuts.

Trivia Time: Infectious Disease Edition

Posted: November 9, 2011 by Keith Stone in medicine, trivia

I hope you remember to wash your hands. Diseases kill millions upon millions worldwide, especially in poorer regions of the globe. However thanks to higher standards of hygiene, better education, and vaccination campaigns, certain viruses are declining and some have, in fact, been wiped out from the face of the Earth. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and I’ll give you mono. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

What is the only infectious disease to affect humans that has completely eradicated? (and a hint: it is not Jungle Fever)


Paranormal Activity 4: The Haunted Testicle

Posted: November 9, 2011 by Keith Stone in marbles, medicine

When a 45-year-old dude from Ontario, Canada went to have an ultrasound of his testicle after feeling some pain, the last thing he expected was to see what appears to be a screaming face. But yeah, either that’s a picture of his future son or there’s somebody literally living in his nut. I guess the doctor’s prognosis must’ve involved an exorcist. Can you imagine a priest splashing holy water on this poor guy’s nutsack while screaming, “The power of Christ compels you?” Or maybe it’s like blue balls, except face balls. At least Queen James won’t have this problem because he doesn’t have any. I know, I know. Low blow.
