commented on Never Heard of 'Em
I remember this like it was yesterday.
I was "working" at KGRG (are they still around?) when Mother Love Bone was set up to headline a benefit concert for us. We were playing the small selection of songs we had by them in fairly heavy rotation as a way of promoting the concert.
Less than a week before the concert was supposed to happen Andrew Wood met his fate. The concert was canceled and there was a depression throughout the studio.
The remains of the band would go through a few iterations (anyone remember Mookie Blaylock?) before becoming Pearl Jam.
While good, Pearl Jam was not Mother Love Bone. I would often say how Pearl Jam wasn't the same since Andrew Wood died, but no one would get it.
The Temple of the Dog tribute was an awesome thing to behold after all this.

commented on Another Bicyclist Is Killed, This One at the Corner of the Ave and Campus Parkway
I'm with some of the other commenters on the whole "not enough details" issue.
Where I live, I've seen too many bicyclists acting recklessly (riding on the wrong side of the street, wrong direction on a one-way street, ignoring traffic controls). Myself, I nearly collided with a bicyclist who ran a red light.
Now, mind you, I'd like to see more people using bicycles, and I do what I can to give them a wide berth when I must pass them, but then I see one doing one of the aforementioned bad behaviors and I have to shake my head.
The driver will be traumatized by this, but it won't make it any easier if it turns out to be the bicyclist's fault.

On the orgasm vs. ejaculation front, I can say that I've experienced ejaculation without orgasm enough times to call it an uncommon, yet annoying, event. I've experienced the reverse (orgasm without ejaculation) only twice. This was quickly followed by a second, distinct orgasm with ejaculation.
The ejaculation without orgasm is annoying in that you do get a release but not the pleasure from the event. You then have to wait for what is your usual refractory period before you can begin again. For me, the second and succeeding events in a session are not as pleasing as the first.

I'm shocked no one has suggested a site for this kid to view. Might I suggest domai.com
? While the bulk of the site costs money (and is a far site cheaper than any other), there is a fair amount of content available for free.

As the owner of a curved penis (upward and rotated slightly to my left), I can tell you that I've only heard positive comments from my partners (all women as that's just how I roll). Some have even bragged about it! As such, I have considered it a "super power" as others have indicated you should consider yours.
My first lover may have been the most appreciative (being 16 years older and more experienced than I didn't hurt, either). You could certainly try that approach to help boost your confidence.
