Sperm count is apparently falling, I have a friend who has just returned from Colombia where he has been collecting semen samples from local indigenous tribe men with little contact to the "modern" world.

 

 We think tree work has challenges..

Good point, there are similarities with your mate's challenges and tree work. I guess you just need to roll your sleeves up and hold on tighter.

I was just stalking your friends list on facebook. Is this the friend you mentioned?

You've got to wonder how that conversation went. I mean you don't just walk into a village full of people who have probably never met a white man and ask them if they'd mind cracking one out into a jar for you?

There was no mention of a jar in the post. Or that he was in Columbia for work.

 

Just saying.

Pretty much. Travel into the jungle by canoe, meet some village elders and hand out some cash for anyone willing to donate.

Some shamen insisted they to go on drug induced spirit journeys first. But I don't think the university RAMS covered that aspect.

They also had issues getting it back to the UK as a pilot refused to carry biological samples.

Good job he didn't talk to any smugglers. I think they swallow the contraband and retrieve it later.
