You wouldn’t know it from the chipper tone of Combat! blog, but I got a vasectomy yesterday. In my life and peregrinations I have smelled many smells, but I will not soon forget the smell of my own burning vas deferens. Nor will I soon forget this pain in my nuts, which I can ease only with Advil or by imagining a child’s birthday party. There is no Combat! blog today, because I have voluntarily sterilized myself. Think of it as an investment in Combat! blogs of the future. While I search in vain for any glimmer of regret, how about you read this fascinating piece by Ben al-Fowlkes about a woman-versus-man bareknuckle fight that happened in 2007? You can watch the video, too, if you dare. I’d like to point out that Ben is a father, probably as a result of having intercourse with his wife. If only he had planned ahead. If only I had frozen peas.
