That's got to be the world's hugest fuel metering needle. I'm guessing the NOx mixture was too rich and the manifold probably landed a quarter mile away.

It's a bad decision, and an unreliable form of birth control (from what I've heard from women at work).

Most men know what an IUD is FOR. They don't know what it looks like, because honestly, it's irrelevant to their lives.

Funny story : I had a friend that was a lesbian until she was 25, when she realized she was actually bi. Hence, for a girl that age, she was quite innocent regarding all things birth-control.
When she got into a stable realationship, she decided to get an IUD. Before going to her ob-gyn, she had to get the device at her pharmacy, and it came in a box that was as long as her forearm. She almost got a panic attack until she realize the actual device was actually much shorter.

My high school health class was amazingly progressive for its time and would probably have opened the school up to a thousand lawsuits these days. One of the teaching aids was a mobile made of all the IUDs then on the market. Even the scary Dalkon Shield.

Knew what it was the second I saw the image. My wife went to have hers removed only to told that it had become embedded. The surgical removal was $3,000 and she got to keep the device as a souvenir. I think we have it taped to a page in a nonsensical notebook covering our adventures in life together. Worth it for the baby girl I got out of the deal.

Wife did like that her periods and cramping were next to nil while this hook thing was inside her. However, she'd never suggest anyone get it because of her embedded wall experience.

The devices used to be shiat. But the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation poured money into research years ago and turned them into the most reliable form of birth control. I guess the pill might be more reliable, but the IUD is "set it and forget it."

An IUD.  Not as sexy as the Millennium Dalkon, though.

I recognized it in an instant. Not because I'm smart or woke to women's issues, but because the first time I saw one I was amazed that such a simple device could be effective. Was suspicious it would work. I mean, what if she's a gymnast, bounces around on a trampoline, sleeps on her side, elevates her legs with a medical condition? Wouldn't the fluid flow around it?

The article laughs at men's understanding, but I've always been impressed that while men know little about women's anatomy, women know more about men's physiology than men know about themselves.

My understanding is that the differences (when the pill is taken on schedule - religiously, if you'll pardon the former-Catholic humor), fall well within statistical error. A draw, in other words. 

That said, if you're at all like me and are occasionally not 100% reliable about medication of any kind, the IUD becomes the far better choice.

Half your job is helping impair normal bodily processes from infection and tumor growth to acid reflux and schizophrenic breaks. Bet you're one of the dipshiats who tears up women's contraceptive scrips and ooks "Religious Freedumb!"
