Victor Ng programs Python for money, but he'd be programming Python anyway if he was a bum.

Sometimes people mess up translations.

Maybe it’s the gutteral sounds of German.

Medline incorrectly got the lower bound of chronic pain post vasectomy as 0.5% when it should be 3%.  Here’s the correction I’ve filed with Pubmed and the original full text (in German).

PubMed link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21845426

PMID:  21845426
TITLE: Ischemic testicular necrosis following vasectomy: rare and typical complications of an outpatient procedure
PUBLISHER: Urologe A
TEXT: Late complications are chronic pain (0.5-18%), pain during sex (2.9%), hydrocele (0-4%) as well as spermatocele (1.6%)
CORRECTION: Late complications are chronic pain (3-18%), pain during sex (2.9-5%), hydrocele (0-4%) as well as spermatocele (1.6%)
NOTE:  The data in question is in Table 2 on the fourth page. I’ve attached the article for your reference.
