WE HAD NO IDEA
In a recent article on shopping and yaks you wrote, "For a guy, reading the manual is tantamount to admitting that, manhoodwise, you are in the hamster category."
I used to do research with hamsters years ago. A male hamster that weighs about 100 grams has testes that together weigh about 2 grams when he's in his reproductive state. For a 200 pound guy that would be like hauling around 4 1-pound packages of hamburger between your legs.
Then, conveniently, when winter comes on and it gets cold and the daylight gets very short, reproduction is not an option and the hamster's testes shrink down to merely human proportions.
Food for thought.
