Happiness runs in a circular motion.

Apparently now, so does procreation.

Learned on NPR's Science Friday yesterday that sperm don't wag their tails from side to side to get around. Just looks that way under 2D microscopes. What they really do is spin through the fluid medium they're in, cork-screwing their way to their destination.

Hmmm, wonder if my SOCD (spin obsessive compulsive disorder) could be traced back to a sperm with a lot more spin than usual?
