    Should I ever be stupid enough to do something like that, please put me out of my own misery...

    Nah, it's easier than you think.

    We have a heater vent in our apartment, it's the only source of heat - it's about 2 feet square, and it's right between our living room and dining room.

    Now, in the cold months (like last winter, when this happened) it can be VERY cold in the mornings, so I'd sit on the vent as the warm air blew, with Logan in my lap feeding him his morning bottle.

    Problem is, when the warm air stops blowing, the vent itself gets REALLY hot.

    Wear a thin pair of pants, and you can get... a blister on your bum... without feeling yourself burn.

    Now... if my Johnson, on the other hand, were getting awfully warm... I think I might move.

    I wonder if he can sue Dell for $10 million like the gal at McDonalds who spilled her coffee?

    That most certainly would prove the case for tort reform

    I doubt he'd get away with it. I would imagine that Dell has a clause in their warranty about things like this.

    Christ, if you can sue and win for spilling hot coffee on you I'm sure you can sue for a lap top burning your schlong.

    I'm not saying he can't do it, but I doubt he'll get any money for it. Dell would probably dig up one of their thousands of documents stating they are not responsible for his injuries. They did change the name from "laptop" to "notebook" and it's probably because of this.

    I'd like to see him try though. He'd probably end up spedning a lot of money on a lawyer for nothing though.

    He would win.

    That's the justice system.

    But I never thought of that. Laptop is no longer called a lap top. Perhaps this has happened before....Hmmmmmmm

    He would win cause Dell would probably buy him off to avoid more publicity, or they would award him with a hefty compensation.

    But I don't doubt that many penises have been burned before!

    I seem to recall a time when there were both "laptops" and "notebooks" on the market at the same time - they were pretty much the same, but "notebooks" were newer and smaller. I think that was around the time that "luggables" were disappearing.

    Uh, as soon as I started to get warm, I would have moved it. But then, maybe that is the first time he has been warm down there in a long time.

    Hehe, yeah he could have mistaken the "warmth" with something else.
