Being the natural researcher that I am, I checked into the differences between a vasectomy for the man and a tubal ligation for the woman. What I found out displeased me. A tubal ligation requires general anesthesia instead of local, much longer recovery time, is much more expensive, and somewhat more invasive. A vasectomy requires only local anesthesia, a very short recovery time, is much cheaper, and is somewhat less invasive.
So after completely disregarding this evidence and hiding it from my wife, we decided to settle the debate over who gets surgery with a best of three game of rock, paper, scissors.
Can you get your tubes untied? Can you unsnip your vas deferens?
