Abel Pharmboy, the intrepid medical blogger behind Terra Sigillata, liveblogged his vasectomy last week. I love the idea of this guy sitting there with his laptop in his lap while the surgeon exposes his balls (yes, he goes there). There's even a moment when he can smell burning flesh during the cauterization. I can't figure out which is more futuristic: Timothy Leary liveblogging his own death, or Pharmboy liveblogging the death of his fertility? Either way, this is a must-read for the posthuman set.
