(That’s the English English ‘pants’ not the US English version…)

How could I possibly not click through to the following story with a title like this:

Self-Cleaning Underwear Goes Weeks Without Washing

I would imagine that combining the words ‘nanoparticles’ and ‘underwear’ in the same sentence may scare a lot of people – but I could be wrong. I especially like the bit in the story about how the underwear was tested on soldiers and it ‘helped to clear up some skin complaints’… There are so many jokes that could be inserted here, but I like my job and want to keep it.

The original article can be found in The Telegraph.
