You can't buy Bex in Australia anymore. As a result I am completely at a loss at what to do when I need a Bex and a good lie down. As a result I haven't laid down since 1982 when my supply ran out. Fortunately my good friends, Pigdog and Spider, have discovered that they still make it in Vietnam and have promised to bring me some whenever they go overseas. If it wasn't unpatriotic, I would say that it's even better than the original. (Still haven't managed to lay down, however. But that's okay, I just take more Vietnamese Bex.)

How To Avoid Age Related Decrease in Physical Ability
The trick to growing old without experiencing a progressive loss of physical ability is to, when young, make a point of being really lazy and unhealthy. And then as you get older, gradually eat better, exercise more, and freebase clearasil less, and if you time it right your improving physical condition will offset your age related health deterioration. Of course, your total life expectancy will be less than if you'd been healthy from day one, and apparently people can find it difficult to break unhealthy habits once they start them, but if you do it right at least you won't be going backwards. At least not until near the end. Which might come soon depending on how successful you were at being lazy and unhealthy early on.

Target Shooting With Simulated Guns for Fun and Profit and Above All Else, Safety.
I recently read about the vast amount of ammunition that is used by target shooters in the United States and elsewhere. So I started wondering, why isn't the sport of target shooting practiced with simulated guns? In our modern age of lasers and moving parts and refined metal and stuff, we are quite capable of building devices that act like firearms but which don't actually spit out a piece of metal at high velocity. They can even be made to go bang and emit the smell of burnt smokless powder. And we are quite capable of using a TV screen or other device to display a target showing where the bullet would have gone if the device had actually been a gun. Various types of simulated guns currently exist. Militaries have been mucking around with them for quite a while in the hope of cutting down on training costs and improving safety. To get the ball rolling, I think the next Olympics should have simulated weapon target shooting.
Of course those who are attracted to target shooting because of the role guns play in dominance fantasies in our society will probably think this idea will spoil their jollies.
Joy to the World, the Lord is Seminal. (2013 update)
Joy to the world, the world's still here,
The Mayans could not kill us,
And so with relief we all cheer,
Although the thought did thrill us.
Joy to the dirt, for some clouds rained,
Just not in the U.S.,
More rain it would be nice also Greenland retaining ice,
But you can't have everything I guess.
Joy to world for Germany saved us,
They reduced the price of PV,
All we need to do is install all across the world,
If Campbell Newman lets us.
Joy to the world because I am rich,
I've got lots of money,
And I will keep it all and not give it to the poor,
Because I look tall if you're standing in a ditch.
