I have this Useless Knowledge section on my iGoogle page. Today's made me think about what some of you might say about it. Interesting information for potential parents and trivia buffs.

Do you love New York? Following a 20-year study, a fertility specialist, Dr. Harry Fisch, reported in 1996 that Big Apple men have higher sperm counts and better semen quality than men of Los Angeles. Experts believe the warm weather and higher pollution in Los Angeles might be the culprit behind the lower quality.

I got to a certain age where they wanted to run a battery of tests on me just as a matter of course - a prostrate exam being one of them but thats another story - anyway the sperm count result was I had 'plenty' they were 'fast' and they swam in the 'same direction' apparently 'erratic' sperms cant find the egg....made me laugh
