Testicles or testes are the pair of male glands that produce sperm fluid; the tiny sperm in the fluid each contain half the 'information' required to produce another being of the same species. The other half is provided by the egg that is produced in the female equivalent glands called ovaries. When sperm is spurted into the female via the penis and has travelled through the cervix into the womb, the thousands of sperm surround the 'waiting' egg and when one sperm is successful in piercing the egg, the egg, which is hundreds of times larger than the sperm, then prevents further sperm from doing so. The egg is then "fertilized" and eventually grows into a new being of the same species.more...
The testicles also produce a hormone called testosterone; this hormone in large doses is what makes a being grow into a male. Thus testicles are what makes a male a male!
Unfortunately for mammals, the testicles have to be on the outside of the body so that they do not get too warm. They are composed of tiny tubes or sperm ducts where the sperm are produced; these tubes are coiled up like very thin coils of spaghetti and are contained within an outer cover attached to the body by a thicker tube (the testicle or sperm chord). This chord has a thin walled swelling at the testicle end called the “Epididymis” and this is protected by being at the back of the testicle. This swelling is very important because it is where the sperm is stored and reaches full maturity after being produced in th...
Nintendo's new handheld system. It features hit games like Animal Crossing DS, Meteos, and Mario Kart DS. The DS will have Wi-Fi internet service by the end of 2005. The internet service will be completley free and will feature games such as Tony Hawk (Working Title), Animal Crossing DS, and Mario Kart DS. The Nintendo DS is a unique system, and unlike the PSP (Which has better graphics, but is still just a shrunk PS2) it has touch screen control and a huge selection of great games. With a Play Yan you can play music and movies on the DS, plus the DS plays GBA games. The Nintendo DS supports many different types of Multiplayer. They are:more...
Wi-Fi Internet Multi-player:
Nintendo DS wireless download and play:
One DS hosts a game and the other people with a DS can join the game, even if they don't have the game itself. Most DS games do this. The wireless range of the Nintendo DS is 100 feet, but can be expanded with a "hotspot" that sends the wireless transmision through a more powerful source that can reach up to around 500 feet.
Nintendo DS Wireless Mulri-card play:
Same as Download and play, only each player must have their own game card inserted into the DS.
The Nintendo DS can withstand amazing damage, two mountain climbers even took their 10 Nintendo DSs to Mount. Everest, and the top of it at that, and none of them broke. They also took computers and other electronics, and most of them broke.
If you want a flashy system with great...
Someone whom is so unbelievably incoherent and incompetent, that you are simply unable to withstand them. This usually occurs with someone you have to work with or be with for a long period of time.

Metallica is a legendary band that helped define the genre of thrash metal (though nowadays their sound can be considered more hard rock or garage than thrash). Their first lineup was James Hetfield (vocals and rhythm guitar), Lars Ulrich (drums), Dave Mustaine (lead guitar), and Ron McGoveney (bass). Ron was replaced with Cliff Burton and Dave was replaced with Kirk Hammett and they released their first album (Kill 'em All) in 1983. The rest of their albums include Ride the Lightning (1984), Master of Puppets (1986), ...And Justice For All (1988), Metallica (aka ''The Black Album'')(1991), Load (1996), Reload (1997), Garage Inc. (1998), S&M (1999), and St. Anger (2003). During their Master of Puppets tour, Cliff Burton died in a tragic bus accident on September 27, 1986. He was replaced with Jason Newsted, and Jason left in the late 90's and was replaced with Robert Trujillo. Metallica has gone through their share of struggles and hardships (Cliff's death, James' alchohol problems, Lars filing a lawsuit against Napster, and conflicts with each other), but they have managed to withstand the test of time and give it their all. Metallica is a great band and those who disagree need to stop making a big deal about it.
Sorry to all the Metallibashers out there, because Metallica's gonna be around for years to come.
The bloody goo that results from a bird/plane collision.
Each day, the Smithsonian Institution's Feather Identification Laboratory receives about a dozen packages from around the country, each containing tissue swabs of snarge for DNA analysis to identify the species of bird. The bird/plane collision data is used to improve aviation safety by having flight plans that are less likely to encounter birds and by engineering more bird-resistant planes. For example, jet engines must now be able to withstand the ingestion of an 8-pound waterfowl without failing (this is tested in the lab by firing a chicken from a cannon at point-blank range).
Hey man, you got some snarge in your teeth.
noun: the warmth generated by a sufficient amount of alcohol consumption. This booze blanket allows one to dress as scantily clad as desired and withstand the marine layer which falls upon the late nights of Isla Vista.
prude: "You're going to freeze your ass off if you go out wearing the dress you borrowed from that hooker!"
skank: "No I won't, not if I finish consuming this alcoholic beverage and get a good booze blanket going!"
