Use of wi-fi laptops damages men's fertility? Watch

The transmission power of most wifi adapters is relatively pathetic. Typically less than 20mW.

I frankly find it amazing that people get fussed about downright piddly wifi transmitters when they slap 2W transmitters right next to their (far more valuable and difficult to fix) brain for extended periods of time.

Excessive heat damaging sperm is well known, and indeed why the testes are left dangling out of the body in the first place. Putting a heated slab (laptop) on them is not going to help in that regard, irregardless of what signals it may or may not radiate.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/poli...in-Europe.html I don't read the telegraph, and 1/6th is 'up there'. This is just semantics and as I said in my previous post irrelevant to my primary point.

And I'm for the extinction of all sentient beings, and I guess if we're to be idealistic any form of animated matter which presents the potential to later evolve sentience. Whether people like it or not our extinction, and all of life's extinction, is inevitable. So we might as well end it now rather than drag it on and the incomprehensible suffering. I could go on a big long rant but what's the point when all you're going to do is disregard the entire argument and say I'm ****ing insane? And there is a, 'trend', there's a big movement promoting the extinction of humanity and sentient life.

I guess our idea of 'up there' is purely subjective and I think we'll just have to agree to disagree as there's no conclusion to which to arrive.

Talk about going off topic lol, if you ranted then yes, I would probably call you insane but if you spoke calmly with a level head and not swearing (as if it somehow makes your point more true) then I would listen. I am always open to new ideas. A big movement? I've heard of a load of self-hating people who promote the extinction of humanity but they're the same people on the Guardian and Independent spouting far left conspiracy crap. They generally go on about it but would never be the ones to make the first move and would want to make other people extinct before themselves. I didn't know there was a big movement promoting the extinction of humanity and sentient life. Has it got a name, this movement?

Wi-fi laptops don't damage sperm as much as sperm damages the laptop....

Yeah I guess I guess it's a combination of anger issues and it becoming so natural I don't even notice it. Though I don't think swearing or general presentation invalidates an argument but I guess out of a general concern for the emotions of others etc. I should try to tone it down lol.

YouTube it, it's, 'Antinatalism'(also sometimes called Eflism[life backwards]). They're not really left or right in the sense that they really don't care about politics since they/we don't see any viable, universal solution to the problems and suffering in the world, though as you could probably guess most do have left-wing inclinations when you bring up what's effectively trivial. Though there's varying degrees I suppose, some only opt not to reproduce(with the hopes that others will do the same and we'd gradually die out) while others not only opt out of reproducing but promote both an involuntary(but almost always instantaneous and pain-free), deliberate extinction. It's generally based on the idea that there's more suffering in the world than there is pleasure, and that pleasure in relation to suffering is trivial anyway(does the beauty of art really compensate for the horror of war, does an orgasm counteract the fact someone at this very moment is probably being experimented on in ways one wouldn't even want to imagine etc. etc.? No). That and that life is an addiction etc. etc. if you want to know more details I'll happily PM you.

You're probably talking about people from the voluntary human extinction movement or child free, the former have some pathological fascination with preserving the Earth in some completely arbitrary state, and the latter are just misanthropic who have no real regard for ending human suffering(and which I personally can't stand and in my opinion, when they associate themselves with antinatalism, drag down the credibility of said movements).

Well either you're lazy (repeat: it was at 1pm) or you're in bed because you need to keep warm. Entirely relevant. Again I say: I was not bragging and thus not needing to repeat myself. Me stating I was married was extra yes but it does in no way mean I am bragging or make any assumptions as to your home.

Unless of course, you are ill, in which case you should have been resting, not on the internet chatting. Either way I have nothing to apologise for and no reason to 'get over myself'.
I accidentally repped you. Consider it compensation for your wife, you braggart.

It's scary how few people actually got the sarcasm.
Sarcasm doesn't really work on the internet.

The level of stupidity/hypocricy of a sentence should be of some indication.

You'd think so, but you see that kind of stuff being posted here seriously enough.

You're too kind. I think it's you who needs to get over yourself.

You wouldn't feel long-term mutation from radiowaves.

The closest you would get would be swelling and radiation burns but noone is suggesting anything short of having a picnic at Sellafield can do that.
It's more likely growth or the way that you are sitting.
I'm sorry but I cannot agree with this. The only times I have ever had really bad pain in my testicles has been when I've been on my laptop for ages. It never happens when I'm not on my laptop, and it never happens when I'm just on it for like half an hour, its only ever happened when I've been on its for long periods of time. So I refuse to believe its a coincidence.

I have always thought this was the case. I never have my laptop on my lap, normally on my desk or on my bed next to me, but when I use it for long periods of time (like 3 hours plus) my testicles really start to hurt. This doesn't happen very often, since I'm rarely on my laptop for that long at once, but it is a bit worrying. How much do we really know about what effects wi-fi could be having on us? Are we going to see a generation of men whose fertility has been damaged by use of wi-fi laptops as they were growing up? :eek:

Seems a daft study - why didnt they get the test guys to use the laptop in different postions, looking at porn then shoot off into a cup - instead of getting them to fill a cup then leaving it next to a running laptop.
Are these proper scientists

Well most wireless technologies are linked to cancer, and many more problems, but it's rarely an issue.


If you think putting a desk in between you helps, ask yourself how wireless can travel through walls, etc. It's impossible to say without some definite research!
tbh everything is linked to cancer

It may well be the case that you only experience testicular pain when on a laptop, but that doesn't mean that its due to WiFi radiation. There are any number of extraneous variables that could be causing this and to say that it is a radiation burn/swelling is just medically wrong.
