Diamonds are a sperm's best friend



Nope, not a girl's best friend, but a sperm's best friend, according to new research:

"It turns out that when your standard polystyrene petri dish gets wet, its surface softens into a toxic goo that might be damaging cells. Coat a quartz petri dish with a nanolayer of diamond, however, and you've created a cellular safe haven."

 Because IVF isn't expensive enough, let's coat the petri dish in diamonds!  Hey, if it gets me a child, I'll figure out a way to pay @ this point.
