Why You Should Never Charge Your Phone At The Airport
“Those USB power charging stations at the airport can be hacked so that they steal data from phones using it to charge. In a tech theft called “juice jacking,” cybercriminals can reportedly use the USB plugs to download your data and install malware without you knowing.”
Old news but worth a reminder or a pass along.
Fertility paradox in male beauty quest
“Taking steroids to get a buff physique or anti-baldness pills to keep a full head of hair can damage fertility.
It has been named the Mossman-Pacey paradox after the scientists who first described it…They are trying to look really big, to look like the pinnacles of evolution. “But they are making themselves very unfit in an evolutionary sense, because without exception they had no sperm in their ejaculation at all.”…The researchers say there is a similar theme in men using medication to prevent male pattern baldness. The drug finasteride changes the way testosterone is metabolised in the body and can limit hair loss, but side effects can include erectile dysfunction and a hit to fertility.”
Never understood dudes taking ‘roids. Ditto with the hair pills. Be a man and own it. I knew my hair was thinning. Then I saw a pic of me from the rear and saw my bald spot getting bad. I said “hell no” and used clippers to shave my head the next day. I use this now: Wahl Professional 5-Star Balding Clipper
