Surely the temperature increase in a laptop is gradual enough to remove it before it starts to burn sensitive components? ;)
Yes, as it got hotter and hotter you would think he would begin a laptop dance.

Already is. Someone included a link :).

I know my laptop gets hot, but never that hot. OUCH!
My old Apple G3 powerbook is just a nice lapwarmer... maybe he bought the wrong model laptop.
can you get hot enough to get burned through pants and underwear without burning them too? steam heat possibly, but I bet no pants & underwear is how the burn happened...at his age viagra probably played a part too :)
I've always been uncomfortable keeping the laptop on my lap for too long. Somehow consistently heating that area for long periods of time doesn't seem like a good idea, burns or not.

Temporarily lower your sperm count, if nothing else... tight pants will do the same. Apparently, keeping some parts below body temperature aids their proper function.

Agreed. Perhaps that is why they are attached to the bod, rather than safely tucked inside.
Which brings another question... "Ventral" as quoted in the article , is the UNDERSIDE. (Dorsal - is the 'top")
How the @Q!@#$% did a dude burn the UNDERSIDE of his privates with the laptop on his lap? Or were they in zero gravity?
...Inquiring minds need to know.....
hugh............sounds like he fried his hard drive. ;)
Oh no Bradley,
Don't start this again.
|"Ventral" as quoted in the article , is the UNDERSIDE. (Dorsal - is the 'top") |
I've generally heard "dorsal" used to refer to the back/spine side of an animal, while "ventral" refers to the stomach side.
On most animals this equates to dorsal/top ventral/underside, but I think that's just a coincidence when referring to four-legged or swimming animals, where their spine is on top, and their stomach is underneath.
I think the spine/stomach correlation is the intended one, in which case the description makes perfect sense. :)
