    I just saw Stallone in Rambo. The guy is seven years older than me and looks better than he did thirty years ago.

    Who knows where I can lay my hands on some HGH?

    Who cares if my head grows to the size of a Bison.

    HGH? I prefer implants myself. Faster results and fewer side effects.

    BEF:

    Don't know about you, but I think Sylvester is starting to look more and more like his mom (Jackie Stallone, the celeb psychic wannabee who "read" rumps <like your palm> in the '90s) -- but with abs, of course, and less and less like Mickey Rourke.

    After reading this in wikipedia about lip enhancement:

    Gore-Tex implants: In medical uses, Gore-Tex is known as EPTFE, or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene and, commercially as Advanta, UltraSoft and SoftForm. The EPTFE is delivered to surgeons in strips that are 1/16 inch (2.4mm) and 3/16 (3.4 mm) diameter tubes.

    . . . I'm wondering if I'm not doing a disservice to the world buying hiking boots of Gore-Tex, when that material could be used doing something more aesthetic, life-altering, and humane, like going into the lips of Jocelyn Wildenstein, aka the Cat Lady (whom I've seen at the airport several times, and as Curly would say, "Nyaaaheeeyaayaah!")

    Frank Zappa quote from the '60s:

    Plastic boots and plastic hat, and you think you know where it is at.


    Zappa derivative for the double Zeros:

    Silicone breasts and Allodermed* lip, and you think you know what is hip.


    *note:
    Alloderm is donor tissue taken from cadavers and then denatured, purified and treated.
    Alloderm is placed into the mucosa, or body, of the lips in small rolls to make them larger.

    Wow - maybe I'll stick with my "100 miles of bad road" weathered mug. But still looking for that hormone induced physique.

    Mickey better watch it on what ever he's up to, or Jackie will be trying to read his face!

    Geez, if you want big man boobies just go winter hiking and drink lots of hot water and tea out
    of a nice nalgene with all that bisphenol-A in it. So glad I can now blame that for my shape rather
    than the pizza parlour and the brewerey - I new it was my nalgene all along, those dirty rotten plastic makers...

    Hey, Narf -- bet you as much as you want that Aubrey doesn't make it past 100 years old.

    Hector:

    What are you talking about? He's 137. My great-grandpa went to grade school with him.

    Yeah, stick with your mugshot; it's gotta be better than Mickey's.

    That BPA is some nasty stuff, it's even leaking into other topic threads....

    Where's the research on whether BPA causes big boobies? I'm still looking for the study that will prove beer slows down the aging process and chocolate can be used as replacement hormones.
