Technology Round-Up

I’m a big fan of the folks over at Gizmodo due to their highlighting of all the cool new geek toys that I can’t possibly afford on my coffeemonkey salary. But this one? I dunno…Everybody Wants One

Looks kinda snazzy, don’t it? Would you care to know what it is?

It’s a SmartKlamp: the Single-Use, Automatic Circumcision machine.

(this site is NFSW but only in a Learning Channel / Medical Photo kinda way)

And no…it’s not a joke.

To paraphrase the gent who wrote up the Gizmodo article, I’m all for machines, but there ain’t no way I’m sticking my trusty pal in a tube full of knives.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find the idea of a Bris-O-Matic more than a little disturbing.  I mean, whatever happened to the warm, human touch in medicine? Wouldn’t you rather tend to your baby’s member-mutilating means with an actual doctor?

But don’t forget to check out the promotional video!!!

    Well, he’s whacked out on pain killers for one. Second, they promised him ice cream.

    I don’t understand how people are okay with circumcision.  So many other religious practices have been abandoned which are far less harmful, why is genital mutilation not only accepted, but recommended by many doctors?  How did circumcision become a thing for Christians anyway?

    No kidding. I get dirty behind my ears, but do I cut them off? No, I clean them. It seems to me that many just enjoy the “tradition” of mutilating their childrens genitals.

    I think the SmartKlamp is a modern medical miracle!

    Why….back in my day….

    Some dimwit thought that was the only thing the Big G checked when looking for his Chosen People in a crowd of soon to be smited heathens.

    Why bother with all those other laws then?  I mean, why keep your head covered all the time when your other one isn’t?

    Hullo??? They’re called pants, Sir Wiggle.
