Ask Dr. Trib

In keeping with my last post, I am greatful to the soon to be Doctor, and Mortician that provided us all with the truth.

No. A dead man cannot get an erection, or maintain it for up to 72 hours. *of course, unless its laying on it's stomach, and the blood settles in the front of the body. Thank you Trib for clarifying.*

So, with that said, onto my next question.

If it is possible to get carpal tunnel syndrome, is it possible to get TARSAL tunnel syndrome? If it can affect your hands, it can surely affect your feet.

My question:

why did George's balls shrink after he came out of the pool in Seinfeld?

Miss Ash said...

Yrautca: They were cold and in trying to keep warm they curled up towards his body for heat.

rawbean said...

I'm sure you COULD get it in your feet...couldn't you? Where's Dr. Trib?

Princess P - Why all the medical questions??

Princess Pessimism said...

Yrautca - What does that have to do with anything?? LOL, besides, Miss Ash has provided you with your answer.

Rawbean - Why not? Im a curious individual

Trib said...

Rawbean's got it. Yes, you can, my dad happens to be a podiatrist so he showed me how to do a release one time.

Ms. Ash is right. George's balls only seemed to shrink due to the contraction of the dartos muscle in the scrotum and the cremaster elevated George's balls up against his body for warmth.

See you guys don't need me to answer any questions. You know the answers already!

Princess Pessimism said...

We're a bunch of smart people here you know Trib...But I think Ask Dr. Trib, is going to be a regular topic on "unhinged"

Lindsey said...

You're in a twisted mood this week. :o)

Princess Pessimism said...

Linny - No i'm not...im inquisitive...

Trib said...

If this is going to be a regular feature, I'm going to have to read up on genital anatomy and the sexual response cycle...

You certainly are smart folks, if you weren't I probably wouldn't hang out with you. I can only take so much of everyone calling each other cock-walruses.

Princess Pessimism said...

Trib - my medical questions are random, and few and far inbetween...dont worry too much. Besides, you dont always have to answer right away...give yourself time to discuss it with your colleauges.
Thanks cock-walrus...oh..uhhh...oops. I mean Trib

Phil said...

Princess- You leave me speechless.

Liz said...

Very impressed you can type so well with your feet :P

yrautca said...

Thanks trib and Ash.

PP, you said we could ask any medical question so I asked. Actually part 2 would have been why did his penis shrink after the pool.

I will offer answers to any investment questions you may have, if need be.

Princess Pessimism said...

Phil - Aww....i dont know if I should take that as a compliment or not...LOL

Liz - LOL!!! Could you imagine? the only thing I can do with my feet, is walk. And I'm not even very good at that...i'm too much of a kiutz

Yrautca - You're absolutely right...you can feel free to ask any medical question you want....i never said you couldnt. I was just wondering the relevance to tarsal tunnel syndrome, but now that I realize there wasnt any, its all good. I thought you were being a smart ass....LOL

I appreciate your availability on investment questions.

Phil said...

Tag, you're it.

Px said...

someone once told me that there's a nerve in a man's upper thigh that's there to contract a man's scrotum/balls up when it's touched, something to do with when we were hunter gatherers and men running through the undergrowth, this nevre would contract his bits to stop them getting caught on things like thorns etc...
said person then tried to find this nerve on me, but failed, still she was cute so i didn't mind letting her try

Sexy Suburbanite said...

No idea. I'm guessing "yes," but I am certainly no doctor.

As for yrautca -- I had never herad of "shrinkage" before that Seinfeld episode but you, being a man, REALLY should have known about it. I mean, it is a real thing.

Princess Pessimism said...

PX - I have not heard of this...MAybe Trib can clarify for us.

S.Subs - I had never heard of that either....until then.

berly02 said...

Ummm . . .I thought it was George's penis shrinking from the pool. Not his balls.

Is the Dr. Trib spot going to be a weekly thing?
Do we need to write in our questions?

Princess Pessimism said...

Berly - Ya...the cold hitting the balls makes them contract against the body to protect sperm or something like that...

And yes...yes yes yes...write in your questions. LOL! We'll put Tribs education to the test! HAHA

yrautca said...

SS, i knew about it. i was only asking why it happened. and it never happens to me. and maybe it does but even with shrinkage its a sight to behold so i never noticed.

Trib said...

Yeah, PX, it's called the cremaster reflex. It's if you run your finger or something up the anterior upper thigh it'll cause your testicles to raise. Getting it to work is a little different story. The nerve is the genitofemoral nerve. The femoral branch comes out lateral to the inguinal ring about in the middle of the thigh. Sounds like she was on the right track. See if she's willing to give it another shot.

Penis shrinkage is just going to be your standard vasoconstriction.

Princess Pessimism said...

TRIB - OH OH...I know that one...vasocongestion...the increase of blood to, and therefore, the swelling of the penis...also happens in women.

But in this case...the reverse? The decrease of blood to the area?? makes it get smaller?

LOOK AT YOU...you're so smart. Send prospective employers here if you need a reference ever!!! LOL

angel, jr. said...

My question is, why would someone want to know about a corpse with an erection?

yrautca said...

so no investment questions? i feel i am not needed. maybe i need too much attention.

anyway, here's an advice: invest in international market and emerging markets - rates of return are in excess of 15% annual. go look at some mutual fund that offers these.

dont be stopud now.

Princess Pessimism said...

Angel - I was something that I wanted to know...

Yrautca - LOL!!! Loser. I will ask you investment advice in approximaltey one year....and maybe you do need a lot of attention...

rawbean said...

what? no architecture questions?

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - I ASKED you one...I put it in your blog...I asked you if you designed your new building remember???

Okay...Well if we're all asking questions, I am hereby offering mine and Miss Ash's counselling services.

Shes better at the legal stuff...probation, parole..just incase those were your concerns. i'm more trained in the direct crisis intervention...restraints, daily life skills, suicide crisis intervention....those sorts of things. Although, she is trained in that as well....

Anyone got a problem???

rawbean said...

BTW - I've been watching MTV Canada ever since you talked about it on your blog - there are some crazy shows - like "Sweet Sixteen" and "Made" and "Your Momma"....crazy!

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - That's a whole month of commitment that youve watched...im sure my brother in law, and his boss, will be thrilled.

Isnt Sweet 16 CRAZY???

rawbean said...

Oh my god! Those sweet 16 girls are soooo bratty! And they are all pissed when their dads don't buy them a car and then the dads give in and surprise them with an even better one than the one they wanted - ugh

Big Ben said...

Could you get a carpel tunnel type sydrome on your penis if you typed with it?

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - TOTALLY...I remember seeing one, who had Louis Vuitton Invitations...WHATEVER!!!

Big Ben - LOL!!!....I imagine thats a possibility.

Trib said...

Oh, blush. But I already have an employer: the US Army. I hear they already have some exotic vacations planned for me.
And vasocongestion is what causes an erection. With congestion think of traffic. It's not just a high traffic flow that would be considered congestion, but when more cars keep coming and the cars that are there aren't leaving. Decreased venous return.
I agree about the sweet 16 girls. I think it's meant to be a cautionary fable or something.
