What's Your Story?

Do you have a true, bad date story? Can we have it please? Then your story can join the ranks of such literary pearls as:

Here is my odd date story:

A co-worker from Washington Mutual wanted me to meet someone that she felt I was perfect for. She raved about him being so intelligent, handsome, charming, & a really good catch.

We ended up talking on the phone & exchanging photos. He was definitely attractive from his photos. He seemed to have a good sense of humor, he liked to shop, & he said he could cook. We talked for a week before we set a time to meet.

I don't normally go to anyone's house the first time meeting them, but for whatever reason I felt at ease. He made a nice dinner & we talked a lot more. I guess I made him feel at ease too--he really opened up to me. He shared with me that he was bi-sexual. I have gay & bi-sexual friends, but I am heterosexual, so this wasn't going to work out as anything more than friends.

We talked openly & I explained to him how I felt about dating him. He respected my stance on things, because he stated that he would always be into men also.
Here is my bad date story:

I should have known better, but I went against my better judgment & went out with a well-known radio personality. He never seemed arrogant & seemed like a nice guy.

When we met up, he gave me a hug & we exchanged pleasantries. We get through dinner, shared a pretty good conversation. We to see a movie afterwards. I don't know what possessed him once the movie theatre got dark to try to put my hand on his penis, but I was pissed to say the least.

I got up, told him I was leaving, & left. He called several times, but I never answered. I ended up running into him again a year later, he acted as if none of that ever happened (of course) & was trying to be friendly, I just walked away.

The worst date ever...

I moved to a small town, a friend & her husband decided to fix me up with a friend of the husband.

We opted to play pool & then go dancing. The guy they set me up with was very friendly towards me, he was cute, so initially I didn't mind.

He started to drink & I could tell he was getting inbriated, by his slurred speech. After we finished playing pool, it was pretty obvious he was in no shape to go dancing.

I wasn't sure if he had a drinking problem or what, but that was definitely bad judgment to get that drunk. He & I both drove separate cars to meet up with my friends. Me & my girlfriend & her husband were discussing the guy they set me up with, while was laying in his back seat singing.

I said I'd drop him off at home, I should have let them drop him off. I figured it should be easy enough he'd drunk, just drop him off curb side & let him stumble to make his way into his place. He is all hands when I pull into his parking area. He proceeds to try to kiss me with his tongue out. ARGH! I mush his face away & tell him I'm going to help him get out of the car.

He proceeds to try to kiss me again & licks my cheek. YUCK! I get out, open his door to get him out. He tries to pull me in, I snatch my arm away & he comes falling out. I ended up leaving him on his stairs & driving away like I was leaving the scene of a bank robbery.

All other parts of the braking system—arms, cable, and levers—must be rigid and precisely positioned to transfer the relatively light force exerted by hands on brake leversto the high power needed in the brakes for effective braking.
In themountain bike wheelmaking, Campagnolo has finally presented not just one but two electronic groups,
Record EPS (Electronic Power Shift) and Super Record ysbike01 EPS, both with identical functionality but slight differences in weight and bearing performance just like the mechanical analogues.
While consumers are only just now seeingalloy road wheelsetshe production version of Campagnolo's new electronic group,
the company actually first began its first development work in 1992 – back when eight-speed drivetrains and integrated brake/shift levers were still considered state-of-the-art and about a year before Mavic's first ill-fated commercial attempt.
Campagnolo's first working prototype wascarbon wheellike everything else in those days – an eight-speed system and the company's developers tucked the electronics and battery inside a gutted water bottle.
The necessary derailleur motors and actuators were quickly deemed too heavy and bulky to be practical, though, and the idea was relegated to indefinite development status.
While the company was convinced a motorized transmissioncarbon wheelsrepresented the next logical step in terms of performance, it nonetheless also felt no pressure to bring a system to market on a specific timeline.
The section of the brakes, called the brake pad or brake shoe,that comes into contact with the moving rim is usually made of rubber or leather to maximize the friction needed to stop.
