Couldn't resist it...

A rub-on gel that might become the first over-the-counter remedy for erectile dysfunction is due to go into clinical trials by the end of this year.

The Sexual Dysfunction Association (I bet they have really fun parties) warned: "Only after a careful evaluation will we be able to say whether this is a great tool or not."

be careful what you wish for - i wrote a little play starring Prostamene and Acyclovir, and since then many poor lost souls, searching for information about frequent nighttime urination, have been mis-googled to my blog.

Speaking of erectile - 'tom I' has just passed his virus onto you while explaining what it did to him.

"Dr. Tits' main research interests lie in various aspects of numerical optimization, optimization-based system design and *robust* control with emphasis on numerical methods..."
