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.
Apparently, keeping some parts below body temperature aids their proper function.
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.....
"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. :)
