Skylights: Poor installation is obviously a concern, but let's just say they're put in right. I've heard people say that they can really heat up a room if not shaded (in summer). I've also always pictured having them above the bed, but I've heard that in winter that can create a steady downdraft of cold air. Any experience?
My parents have a skylight in their loft. It was installed over 25 years ago (when they added the loft), and they've never had a problem with it leaking. It does have a shade, which is kept closed during the day in the summer. Opening it up at night really draws out the hot air, which is nice.
I sleep up in the loft when I visit (and the bed up there is right under the skylight)--I've never noticed any cold air downdrafts in the winter.
As far as vasectomies...I'm not super qualified to comment, but I do have a former co-worker who got snipped. He had an icepack on his groin for a day or two in the office, but managed to successfully hide the whole procedure from his wife, so it couldn't have been too traumatic.
