At Mick's age (and drug intake), the ol' DNA isn't as stable as it used to be.  Poor Mick Jr.

Leandros A: He wasn't wrong.

/so glad I got the snip


My wife wants me to get snipped. I told her that if I was going to spend money on something I hardly ever get to use, I would get a boat.

He's not wrong. I wish more men would get it done. Could prevent so much of their own hell (child suppprt).

Of course Mick isn't a deadbeat, he's just really farking old.

My wife's libido shot up dramatically when I had it done. Just putting that out there...

And if your wife had her wits about her she'd retort, "I'd let you in the garage more often if I knew your transmission wasn't leaking".

If pregnancy is a real threat and there's no birth control and you don't want any or any more children, why not do it?

I would suggest he sample krokodil, spice, bath salts or flakka.

I got snipped a few years before my first divorce. At first i was upset about it. But then i saw the reaction i got when i started dating again. Some of those ladies wanted to send my ex a bouquet of flowers as a thank you.

It is mostly a mid-life crisis thing. Plus, we still have the pill. I would take a pill if one was readily available for men.

It probably would have been easier after my last kid was born, but when you have to accept all the other crap that comes with getting old it is hard to add to the list of things that you will never do again.

Yep. She can't take any birth control and we were a 100% condoms 100% of the time couple so that was just about the easiest decision I've ever made. (We both knew we didn't want kids. It was not an agonising decision for us, more just a "okay we're committed, schedule it!")

It's the easier choice, I think. A lot of doctors won't tie a woman's tubes if she's within a certain age range, "you'll change your mind", they say. (The hell I will.) And a total hysterectomy is just about unheard of these days in almost every situation that isn't life-threatening. Not to mention what that does to the hormones. You think she was crazy when she was PMSing, menopause is no joke.
 
2018-03-01 12:12:50 PM  
Or maybe have relations with woman closer to your age.

It's an easy choice as long as you know you don't want more/any kids. The only reason for her to get her tubes tied would be if she weren't planning on being in a monogamous relationship. She did ask (out of curiosity, not a formal request) some years ago, before we were together. She was told yes, they would do it (I think around age 32-33) but this is in Europe which is less paternalistic than the US.

She can't do any hormonal method, she can't do the copper IUD (horrid side effects), we have a lot fewer methods overall available in our country anyway. The ring thing was like a torture device for her. All of that before we were ever together. By that point, she knew it was condoms or nothing.

The reason she never went through with the tubal when they said okay was she didn't want to undergo a serious operation whose sole purpose was to ward off other people's sperm. We always called it sperm control instead of birth control lol.

(Also with the ability to bank one's sperm for future IVF, vasectomy should not be such a hard choice for men. And it can be reversed in some cases. Guys, dooooo eeeet.)

I have a really hot Italian stallion who already has three adult children -- and he isn't snipped. It doesn't matter because I no longer ovulate, so we can fark like horny beasts all the damn time we want. And thankfully, we want.

He probably already has, and since he's been doing drugs for the last three hundred years, he can say, with authority, if a drug is bland or not.

I'm sure the women he beds aren't thinking about him when they're doing the deed. More like his wallet. That big bank account makes the ladies real fertile and hot in the pants.

If you've got health insurance it's probably covered.  I think all I paid for mine was a $50 copay and uber rides to and from the hospital.  I'm no marine recreation enthusiast but I think that's cheaper than a boat.

No kids, got my tubes tied at 29 (would have much earlier but couldn't find a doctor who would do it) and then as a cosmic joke, had natural menopause at 32.
It rocked.

Puh-lease.... Them 2 have been friends and coworkers for over 50 years.....   I can't imagine one of them could possibly offend the other... They probably know each other's deepest darkest secrets.

If somebody was going to call me out on my tomfoolery, i'd HOPE it would be a guy like that.

You know what Keith? You were on a heroin bender for what? 10 years? You were so wasted most of the time that it was up to Mick to keep the band together and make sure that the band could record and tour. Those ten years happen to coincide with the Let It Bleed > Sticky Fingers > Exile on Main St. period, you should count your blessings every single day that Mick was there to help make that stuff happen.

My Dad told the story of his vasectomy this way; he went to a Dr. to get snipped and the guy sat across from him and said "Sorry, I don't do vasectomies on men as young as you, it would be a real mistake at your age." (Dad was 30) Then Dad told him "I have six kids already" and the Dr. said "...Wednesday? Is Wednesday good for you?" And Wednesday he got snipped.

The story is that Keith is the one who pushed for the back-to-basic-blues approach, and Mick is the one who pushed for a pop oriented approach. So if you liked Beggars Banquet through Exile on Main Street, that's on Keith. Goats Head Soup through Emotional Rescue was Mick.

My Dad was married via shotgun wedding at 22, had five of us Spawns of Satan by 32 > snip snip snip. Her never regretted it, the idea that all families have to be even close to Duggar-size is just ludicrous. This isn't 1818 when you needed bodies to work the farm for you.

The story I heard is they all simply didn't want to keep doing the blues forever.
I like that they've come full circle, love the blues. Like almost every genre, just to different extents.

The only problem with that statement is that Mick apologized for it. Having kids over 40 is stupid.

If you're not careful, people would wind up falling overboard. An inexperienced hand can result in spilled seamen.

It's bad when the Duggars do it, but Mick gets a pass?  Nope.

It's irresponsible as hell and what kind of parenting can you actually do with that many kids?

Gross.
