        Someone went on Gaiam (yoga workouts) Facebook page to complain that their yoga mat is made of chemicals.

          Pity you didn't tell them that they themselves are made of chemicals.

            Everything is a chemical.

                Disagree. Parents make all sorts of decisions for their kids, medically and otherwise, that have long lasting if not permanent effects. If my kid ends up being a boy, he's getting circumcised. He won't remember a thing and he'll be at less risk for UTIs and STDs down the road.

                  I'm a little suspect on the UTI risk justification. Ear tubes are a similarly routine procedure and similarly reduce the risk of infections, but we don't have those put in before infections actually develop into a problem. I suspect the main difference is little more than the lack of historical baggage.

                    Far more importantly, without that snip he'll be getting far fewer blow jobs. Girls aren't fans of peeling the banana.

                      Eurotrash girls aren't fans of Americans who've given the pip the snip. They think it's weird and, in some circles, I think there's a latent anti-Semitism to their preference.

                      The preference all depends upon from which land you hail. With modern hygiene there's no real greater risk for UTIs in the boy, so long as he's taught, like any child taking shop, to properly clean his tool. As to STDs, I can't speak to that, but it should be covered with a jimmy hat.

It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir
