Data Loggers In Your Underwear



You know those guys who can't seem to keep still, they're always getting up and twitching and tapping and stretching? (Think Steve Buscemi.) Yeah, those guys. Apparently fidgeting is a good way to burn calories; a study by the Mayo Clinic claims that the difference between being obese or lean may be due to how much a person is apt to stand, pace, wriggle and shift about over the course of a day.
Each participant in the study wore special, high-tech underwear, rigged with sensors and data loggers originally designed to monitor jet fighter motion. The underwear could track most body movements.
Special, high-tech underwear? With sensors originally designed for jet fighters? Is that really something you want near your junk?

Yes, nothing like the smooth tingle of electricity flowing through your balls as they monitor every leg tap and butt clench. Did they mention the 50 volt shock everytime you fart?
