It was a boy!

One story all over the media yesterday was the shocking news that a 425-million-year-old fossil crustacean found in England had a penis. It's the oldest penis ever found in the fossil record. This is because the soft tissued genetalia do not usually fossilize. Of course we are speaking of pre-Viagra epochs here. The first uncomfortable thought I had when I heard this news was what if this happened to me? I just hope they don't find my remains in 400 million years.
