There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
Testicles is a less offensive word for "bollocks." They are also referred to as "balls" or "nuts." They can get cancer. They produce a hormone known to cause male humans to make irrational decisions, as well as give them Bigfoot-esque body hair and an unpleasant odor. On the plus side, this same hormone is also an anabolic steroid, so men get free muscle development out of the deal.
They play a reluctant starring role in many videos shown on America's Funniest Home Videos and similar programs.
By way of proving that God (or FSM or IPU) has a sense of humor they turn out to be the single itchiest place on the human body, followed closely by that spot in the middle of the back that you can not reach. Further proof: It is perfectly acceptable to ask your significant other to scratch your back.
