Ilona sent this link to a bunch of girls and me. I got a pretty good reaction to my response, so I'm reprinting it here.

Dear Ilona,

If I had a buck for every time someone told me some habit of mine had a negative impact on fertility, I'd have enough money to settle all of those paternity lawsuits that people would never file against me.

Dear other girls,

It seems that this only affects men. Now I know how I fit into this equation, but I wonder why Ilona sent this to the rest of you? Are you men too? On the chance that you're not:

Dear other girls,

I'm immune to this because I don't even have a phone. Looking for a date? Call me!

Dear everyone,

"Hungarian researchers?" Take it from me: never trust a Hungarian.

"Securities may be Ilona's best friend, but Alan Greenspan is mine."

Pick a different trade.
