Comment: Rumor has it that raising the temperature of the testicles is an
effective form of birth control for males. My roommate gave me this tidbit
of information, and is currently sitting in his room with a rice-sock in
his pants. I have not found much information on this solution, and what I
have found doesn't seem to be from very reputable sources. I did a search
for "testicular heating" on google. Is there any reputable literature on
testicular heating and is testicular heating actually a viable form of
birth control?

This is the site that seems to be the original source of this information.

Comment: An uban legend of Wolf humans, lancothropes, or AKA Warewolves.
Sure many say this is false but are there actually creatures like that? Or
where there in the past? I am verry interested in Wolves and Wolf Humans,
so send to me ASAP if you can.

uban legend? Do you maybe mean U-bahn legend, a legend told in german subways? But then, I would not be worried about lancothropes, as they would be rather lank and not enough of a trouble. You could almost say they are SoftWarewolves, you just find them now making illegal copies of computer programs.

Indeed it is. It's called the "Boiled Egg System". You simply have to heat them up to 450F or higher for ten minutes and you wont have to worry about getting a woman pregnant.

I actually heard this one from my high school anatomy teacher. He said that it was used in ancient China, where men would sit with their testes submerged in a pot of hot water a few minutes before doing the deed. Not sure how effective that would be, though.

According to a few journal articles I read, all you have to do is get the right job, or become a paraplegic. I found journal articles that found higher incidences of infertility in :
Bakers
Professional drivers
Ceramic oven operators
Welders
Men who take a lot of hot (not warm) baths
Men who sit for hours a day with a laptop in the right place
Paraplegics

But taking a bath right before, uh, "doing the deed," ain't gonna work. The deal with temperature is consistent exposure to high temperature reduces both quantity & quality of sperm. Since spermatogenesis takes time, well, they guy's roommate had better stop at the drugstore on his way.

OR, the roommate can follow the method used by this guy--he contrived a pair of underpants that kept his testicles pushed into his abdomen all day. Male Contraception Using Testicular Heating

Remember the TV show "Coach" with Craig T. Nelson? When he and Shelley Fabares finally got married, they wanted to have a baby, but Coach didn't have good "swimmers." The doctor said to him, "As a football player, I bet you spent a lot of time in the hot tub." (For relaxing muscles, I think he meant.) Coach said yes, and the doctor said, "Think about your three minute egg when you drop that into boiling water..." and made his point.

IT'S NOT THE RED BULL! IT'S THE FACT THAT HER PARENTS KEEP YELLING AT HER! SHE HAS NO SELF-ESTEEM ANYMORE!

See how you're causing the problem?

Conversely, if she's losing her appetite because of a substance, Red Bull probably isn't the stimulant in question.

Oh, about Red Bull. Well, it's a very sweet carbonated drink. 4 cans should be enough to make your daughter fat. If not, encourage further drinking.

Which year? Is someone going to come along and take back the year I was 25? That was a pretty good year, and I don't want to lose it.
