Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

comment At what age does a toddler stop being a toddler?
Good citation. Not sure why the other answers are being upvoted when they are little more than "here's what I think.."

comment Is “hot saucing” bad parenting?
usually physical punishments are at the end of a series of escalations in lesser forms of punishment -- a stern talking to, removing something the child likes, etc etc. Presumably the reasons were discussed as part of the earlier, lesser punishments.

comment Should we circumcise our son?
If you'd like to present scientific data, fine, but posting explicit videos to make your point is not acceptable behavior. Anything prefaced by "warning: contains blood, nudity, and may be upsetting" simply isn't appropriate here. Let's stick to the science. Thanks!

comment Should we circumcise our son?
@sai it's irreversible like piercing of ears is irreversible.. it's a very minor cosmetic change to the human body for the benefits cited above. There are tons of "unnatural" things we do to our bodies in the name of medical science, so it just depends if you agree with the studies cited above about the benefits or not. IMHO it's really not a big deal either way.

also per aafp.org/online/en/home/clinical/clinicalrecs/guidelines/… "No valid evidence to date, however, supports the notion that being circumcised affects sexual sensation or satisfaction."

comment Should we circumcise our son?
There's a lot of opinion here with precious little scientific data backing it. While I'll be the first to admit that the circumcision data is at best mixed -- meaning neither pro or con are particularly strong -- to say that "Frankly, the belief that circumcision has any material health benefits is just plain wrong" is, ironically, wrong.. per The American Academy of Pediatrics "existing scientific evidence demonstrates potential medical benefits of newborn male circumcision"
