In what can only be described as a major medical discovery, saliva contains a painkiller that is stronger than morphine, six times stronger, in fact.

Some people might misguidedly think that there is an abnormality with the testes, or some other explanation for this appearance, such as genetic or even some kind weird disease. But the true reason that one testicle hangs lower than the other is much less exciting. It’s to stop them from banging against one another.
