St. Petersburg artist Petr Pavlensky nailed his dangly bits to the cobblestones of Moscow's Red Square. He said his actions were a "metaphor for apathy, political indifference, and fatalism." [Moscow Times]
I'll leave the interpretation of his artistic statement to others. What I'm curious about is the actual mechanics of what he did. How do you drive a nail directly into cobblestone? It's not like driving a nail into wood. You can't just sit there with a hammer and bang away at it. I think you might be able to do it if you had an air-compressor-powered nail gun. Or if you pre-drilled a hole in the cobblestones. But what was it?
A 66 year old Colombian man thought that to better impress his lady friend he would take some extra Viagra. Unfortunately that did not work out too well for him. After several days with a hard on he went for medical attention. Doctors decided that since the man's penis was inflamed, fractured, and had gangrene the best course of action would be amputation. The lesson here seems to be that you CAN get too much of a good thing folks.
Joshua Shoemake is trying to raise money in order to fund his dream of cooling men's private parts. If he raises $20,000 by April 4 he's in business, but he's still got a long way to go.
Which is to say, he's got a kickstarter campaign to fund his idea of manufacturing "Snowballs: Cooling Underwear for Conceiving Men." Apparently, if a guy is trying to get a girl pregnant, his fertility increases if his dangly bits are slightly chilled.
Wasn't there an episode of Cheers where Sam wore frozen underwear to boost his fertility?
The take-home from the article is that a) pubic hair grooming injuries are on the rise, mostly because more people are watching porn, inspiring them to want to look like porn stars down there, so they start grooming, sometimes with bad consequences; and b) razors were responsible for most of the injuries. The authors recommend using clippers instead.
