From my blog: http://jorriss.com/dottext/jorriss/archive/2004/06/04/253.aspx



So I was reading this Reuters article on Yahoo! Finance on Overheated PSs mean hot business for cooling firms when I saw this.

"British medical journal The Lancet in 2002 reported the case of a man who used a notebook computer on his lap for about an hour -- and developed blisters on his scrotum." 

At what point did this guy figure out that something was wrong down there? You've got your notebook on your lap for over an hour and you didn't notice that your crotch was just a tad bit warm. Or didn't notice that burning flesh smell. This guy deserves a Darwin Award Honorable Mention.

Do we need to start putting warning labels on notebooks? WARNING: Using this product could harm your reproductive system!
