The Atlas of Congenital Anomalies of the External Genitalia. Though the site is selling the atlas, you don't have to buy it to peruse the examples of each anomaly in living, leg-crossing, full-color glory. You know you're not going to make it through the day unless you find out what a hypospadias cripple is. (NSFW; physicians' offices exempt.)

After consideration, I'm glad that being at work is keeping me from clicking on this link.

There are few things in life I would rather be ignorant of...
And this is one of them!

headspace thinks this is rotten.com or something.

"Did you hear about Stacy Brown? He had every chick in town! He had looks, he had class, he'd do anything to get the little lass. And everyone would shout at him as he'd walk the girlies past: 'Everybody got one! Everybody got one! Everybody got one! Everybody got one! Everybody got one! Stacy Brown got TWO!'"

I'm sure it's a hoax, or some kind of cock and ball story.

I'm not sure if i should stop to think about how headspace found this in the first place.

I have never been more thankful for being healthy and having my entire anatomy intact in my entire life after seeing that. No matter what happens to me in my life now, I'll know that it could have been a LOT worse.

quonsar's link is to the same site.
people familiar with the concept "status bar" probably knew that, though.

/me realizes he's been to this site before.

No, wait, come back. I was curious to find more information about hypospadias after reading Jeffrey Eugenides' Middlesex.

I'm 3/4 of the way through Middlesex right now, Emelenjr. Now I know more about Calliope's "crocus" than I needed to.

Nah, quonsar- if I'd thought this were rotten.com, I would have posted a direct link to one of the rather more gory jpgs alone, rather than the page on the site that names each condition and what causes or characterizes it. Consider it a companion thread to the one I made about medical antiques. Or don't. You're cute when you're irascible.

So it turns out Matt changes the RSS feed so the top link is the real link rather than the discussion on MetaFilter. So when I thought to myself, "I don't wanna see that, but I'd like to hear what people think of it" and clicked, lunch became less interesting. And yet more so.

There's a connection here (SFW), but I can't quite figure out what it is.
I really just wanted to share that story, but couldn't justify a FPP.

That was both nasty and a relief to see just how badly fudged up one's happy parts can be.

And I've begun a campaign to rename this condition, Republican's Disease. It would help explain alot, wouldn't it?
