    Default To those who have laptops...

    What kind of desk/table do you use for it? I'm looking to get rid of my old, bulky computer desk for something a little more space-efficient. I only really need space for the laptop itself and a could small items (router & cable modem).

    My laptop connects to my router wirelessly, so I basically put my laptop wherever it is convenient, but when I need a stable, longer-term place, I just use an old dining room table half folded down in a corner.

    Aren't... you... supposed.... to... put... a... laptop...

    On your lap?
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Ikea makes a hinged table that folds down to hang flat on your wall. The great thing about them is that they don't take too much space when they are up and you can mount them at a hieght that is most comfortable for typing on your key board. I also recommend figuring out how to angle your laptop so that the body and the keyboard are pitched forward slightly. Also, try to use a mouse as much as possible. These last two points are to avoid hand and wrist problems that come from using laptops.

    Sure. If you love having a low sperm count, this is the method for you.

    You're assuming that Jay actually HAS a sperm count.
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    Since I'm the "accountant that can't count", maybe I should hire one of those sperm-thingies to do the counting for me.

    I fail to see how having a laptop on your lap will lower your sperm count. The heat? By that logic, I should never take a bath again.

    While I was trying to be funny, I was also serious about the connection.

    I'm pretty sure he was being serious but making a joke type of reference.

    I am actually curious about that. It doesn't really make that much sense, but to be on the safe side, I wont be using my laptop on my lap again.

    It makes perfect sense, if you think about it. Your balls are on the outside of your body for a reason, and that's because sperm will die at your body temp. So if you have something hotter than the level at which sperm can live right on your lap, the heat will start to kill them off.

    Now it won't kill them off at an extrememly fast rate, but it will to some extent. That's why they tell trying fathers not to wear whitey-tighties, because it makes them closer to your body and raises the temp.

    Not to menton, laptops tend to get pretty warm when you use them hours at a time, which I do for my projects.
