There's gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight.

Or one could just go the tighty-whiteys route.

Although nor verified by the Reproductive Management Center of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums in St. Louis, Mo., here is one oft referred to method that *Does Not* work.

Verified Does Not Work Mmethod: Standing at the bus stop in Jr. High waiting for the warmth of the bus doors to open and the heater hitting you in the face, temperature hovering around 17 below with a wind chill of minus 30 'freezing your nuts off'.

FYNO method *Does Not* work. Also, FYNO is not a viable method of male contraception. Spread the word.

"This procedure—injection followed by magnetic targeting—was performed daily for one to four days."

This is the part where you see me scurrying off like The Little Rascals.

Well, my boys are out there, and they're LOVING it, and that's not gonna change, so how cool is that.

Flicks my Bic.

Heat Of The Moment

Sure, heating up your testicles with nanoparticles as a birth control tool. What could possibly go wrong? Well, you could start by paying attention to mad scientists.

Why can't they just let a man be?

Birth control the easier way: just splash on more Old Spice.

I always found a woman having a NY/NJ accent worked well.

There seem to me all sorts of serious complications that could occur. If the particles are filtered in the kidneys, that could lead to glomerular kidney disease. If they're too small to be filtered, they might pass through the blood/brain barrier and cause havoc with the brain's electrical impulses. They might also accumulate in the joints and cause arthritis.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is becoming a widespread diagnostic tool. If someone with ferrous metal particles in their testes undergoes MRI, the result would be boil-in-the-bag meatballs.
