The foreskin/circumcision debate has gone back and forth over the decades. Some study will come out saying that it's better to have it done, and later on, another will come out saying it's pointless, and back and forth, on and on. I guess it's about time for it to swing back the other way...

Men who have been circumcised may be six times less likely to contract the HIV virus than uncircumcised men, research carried out in India suggests. So, that'll be a few years of it being in vogue until someone says something different.

On a brighter note: 84-year-old Tory peer Baroness Sharples decided that the cyclist who was jumping the red light needed to pay for his law-breaking, so she whalloped him with her handbag as he tried to whiz past. Her only regret, she says, is that she didn't hit him harder. Rock on, ma'am.

My latest research into circumcision shows that if you are not circumcised you will die a horribly bloody death and if you are circumcised you're insane. Research is fun. ;)

I had a friend from Lybia and had it done at like 13 years old, from what he said I am glad I had it done as a baby and don't remember it.

Eh, if I ever get around to it, I'm not going to. I'm going to leave it to the kid.

I am still annoyed at the entire concept of circumcision. I don't think my parents should have been allowed to make that call...
