Reference to this story was in my local paper this morning. You know me, always trying to find the silver lining in every day, I thought you guys might like to know that having had surgery can have benefits more than "nobody has to sleep in the wet spot". LOL

Steve, you know me and my Every Day is A Bonus philosophy. I just thought it was great that I was able to knock it out so early in the morning. One more thing to be thankful for I guess.

Sonny,

"A mysterious syndrome in which men come down with a flu-like illness after an orgasm may be caused by an allergy to semen, Dutch scientists said Monday.
Men with the condition, known as post orgasmic illness syndrome (POIS) and documented in medical journals since 2002, get flu-like symptoms such as feverishness, runny nose, extreme fatigue and burning eyes immediately after they ejaculate. Symptoms can last for up to week.

I thought those side effects were the result of PBP - Post Binge Partying. Other effects include waking up in an unknown bed in a foreign city with a brand new tattoo of a tongue on one's belly.

(I hate it when that happens.)
