the only Shimano I know is the Shimano in the context of my bicycle gears.
Also legendary is Shimano's fishing tackle :117:

As Joe said, I can play in the lounge perhaps, but I'm handicapped without Larry :D
It's the other way round for most :D

Last week somewhere I watched season 3 of A Series of Unfortunate Events
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4834206/

The most unfortunate event was that it was the last season, the end of a story.
If I'd dwell on that, new beginnings/stories might be disguised as painful endings (as Lao Tse said)

No worries, I don't have sex that often, it's never on my mind (desire-wise), only when conditions meet does it spontaneously happen, well you can sense the "happening" and I always have whiskey in storage for my bad teeth :hatsoff:

between age 26-36 ish I didn't have sex for ten years, nor was I aware of that, now I'm old (42) and for some reason it sometimes happens :103: :P

Yes ofcourse, I also had no desire to photograph/meet a pigeon today, but when it happened it was bliss.

The experience without (mental) desire (or head-sex) feels much deeper then people that have sex with premeditation, in the same way I never pre-meditate my "meditation" sessions. I remember when young and met my first girlfriend, after having sex the first time it was on my mind constantly, that sucks! no "satisfaction" in that even when you "get what you want" Not long after I picked up my first zen book from the second hand store she was working at...it was an eye openener or mind-killer. Also showed me through years of introspection that any desire is void of own being. So the whole "thou shalt" "thou shalt not" was seen as the BS that it is, I wished teachers would be more open about their personal/family lives.

Ah, so you don't ever do anything? Just let the rollercoaster coast?

I've tried this, but it gets tricky when decisions need to be, or habitually seem to be, made. Not that tricky though.

Oh no, once things are "on" I'm a beast (depending on what level of beast mode the girl in question is up for) ;)

Reminds me of a song.

If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner, take my hand, or
If you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I'm your man

"I'm your man" by Leonard Cohen

Never had a request I didn't feel comfortable with yet, but hey I'm Dutch (thus have I heared)

I've tried this, but it gets tricky when decisions need to be, or habitually seem to be, made. Not that tricky though.
Not sure I know what you mean here, sounds like a zombie flick (am I close?)
Anyways enlighten me, hey there's no such thing as privacy, all thoughts are collective, we "all" mistake the inner for the so called outer larry :109:

If I may ask, do you remember what book that was? Just curious. My first book was a college textbook.
