Is Gillian's vortex near Gilligan's Island?


More proof, if it were needed, that fools and their money are soon parted...


I refuse to waste good money on a resort with no vortex.

It's simple: Drive a tank, followed by a decent four-course, three-bottle lunch, topped off with a decent professional blow job. It could not be simpler.

That's how to relax.

I wish...


"An amazing energy vortex."

I thought CERN was in Switzerland?

Didn't we already see this in The Road to Wellville?

Especially the “intuitive vibrational exercises” part...

"An amazing energy vortex."

Oh I know what happened to that. It was a space-time continuum anomaly and the Doctor closed it.

Seriously, I used to watch You Are What You Eat because it was on after or before that show where they cleaned up peoples' dirty, filthy homes (my favorite was the Scottish girl who confronted her newly pristine pad with the complaint that now she couldn't find any of her stuff). I did think her nutritional guidelines were pretty sensible for the fried-fat gorging porkers she had to deal with. I didn't realize that she was that far around the treehugging-hippie-crap bend, though. I thought the focus on poo was just a British thing; blame my English-descended grandma, who was a tad obsessed with my and my sister's "BMs" and once tried to get me to take cod liver oil.


"I thought the focus on poo was just a British thing" :D


“I refuse to waste good money on a resort with no vortex.”

Well, quite. But I fear it may be more serious than that. Surely all those “intuitive vibrational exercises” should be focused through the vortex. I mean, without the vortex things may go awry:

“We’ve got an amulet malfunction in room 10. We need uncooked sprouts, stat! And massage oil – lots of it - better make it apple blossom!”


At least she's not selling unlicensed herbal sex aids...

That's flatulence is that like, vortexes and stuff, like farting in the bath.Is that extra? Sprouts always do that to me, never heard it called vibrational exercise before though.


Maybe animal welfare shut off the energy vortex when they determined that it was causing the eagles to swoon.


"an amazing energy vortex."

Gillian McKeith is obviously working for the Daleks.


What about quaint shops in ancient caves? Are there any of those?

Also why do pictures of stones appear so prominently on the front page? Are stones somehow involved in the diet?

"I thought the focus on poo was just a British thing"

Indeed it is. She lifted this from the Bristol Stool Scale (that's right - a British University has actually released a poo classification) :



Why does it seem that rich societies inevitably descend into fads characterized by a wretchedly excessive waste of resources?


Just my opinion, of course, but on 'You Are What You Eat', I always thought she looked really ill. Not as bad as the lard arses she used to hector, but that's setting a pretty low bar. And as for getting "closer to the essence of Your Self ", I just want to flush it away thank you.


Yeah, bgc, thanks for that Wiki image that I just got curious enough to checkout...just after lunch, fortunately. I'm beginning to suspect that Western society is moving in a direction such that, if you're not some kind of freak, you must be some kind of freak. Or that's my feeling, anyway...present company excepted of course.

Good point, exceptionally well put. I think.


Cool. Most rub-'n-tug parlors don't offer a "Certificate of Completion".

Or so I understand.
