In all seriousness, I have one kid. And as a noncustodial parent, you get nothing in the form of tax benefits/perks unless the custodial parents agrees to let you claim the child on your tax return.

It still doesn't outweigh the overall cost of raising the kid, though.

Buffalo Wild Wings, which hired its first CMO as well as a new creative agency last year, launched an aggressive ad campaign this week encouraging college basketball fans to watch NCAA March Madness games in the chain's restaurants.

To that end, the 1,200-unit Buffalo Wild Wings chain is rolling out custom-designed stools at one unit in New York City and another in Los Angeles. The Jewel Stools are "an in-restaurant response to the spike in vasectomy procedures during the NCAA tournament, where thousands of men coordinate their doctor-ordered R&R to coincide with the biggest sports weekend of the year," a company spokesman said.

The center of the barstools features a cooling apparatus for "numbing relief," the company said, along with a chilled cup holder and light-up "Beer me" sign.

Oh well... I got ice packs, video games, and a loving wife to take care of me. That counts for something, right?

Well here I am sitting on the couch feeling a little sorry for myself.

Procedure went ok, but they didn't use enough anaesthetic on the first nut. The cut I didn't feel but when they started tugging it really hurt. Got a double shot to my left but so that was painless.

Paracetamol is helping a little but it still hurts. How much does the ice pack help?

It helps a lot.

It's just this cool, comforting feeling on your achy balls. Make sure you get a jockstrap. The extra support will feel wonderful.

Wearing boxer shorts that are too small, seems to be doing the trick keeping everything still and secure. Will have my wife bring me an ice pack for the sack now, thanks!

All you should be doing for two solid days is laying on the couch. Do you want a snack? Let the wife get it for you. Do you have to take a leak? Use a cane or walking stick to help yourself up and down the hall. Thirsty? Have her bring you something to drink.

After two full days, you can start doing your own thing. The first two days are really crucial for a speedy recovery.

Wearing tight underwear and/or a tight jock strap are key to minimizing pain. Even gentle swaying of the balls was enough for me to feel really uncomfortable.

So slightly different instructions in Sweden vs the US. In sweden they say wait 3 months before testing and raw dogging since that's how long sperm can live. Just about there now so will go get tested soon. Have to find out where though since we just moved to New Zealand.

I don't feel any discomfort anymore. Used to feel it if I had to run a little and the boys slapped around but no more.

I submitted my first sample after six (eight?) weeks and then another sample eight weeks after that. Long story short, it was about three months and one week.

In three days, it will have been one year since I got it done. Zero discomfort, zero pain, zero blood, no weird estrogen levels, etc. It was one of the best decisions of my life.

Yeah. He was saying your lady friend is pregnant because you didn't wait.
