Tastybigmac, I am glad to see that you have regurgitated this old thread that helped so many troubled souls in the past.

Your predicament is one that we all go through unless you to choose to follow the adage 'Live fast, die young, leave a pretty corpse'.

The three things you need to avoid are...

having children
mid-aged spread
hair loss

Of course genetics plays a role in some of this stuff, but fortunately we live in an age where science can come to our rescue. Just look at what Advanced Hair (yeah, yeah) has done for Warney.

As for climbing like shit... well instead of training I prefer to focus on illusion. My trick is to make sure I am seen around the crag, talking it up, taking an interest in what's going on... anything that doesn't involve climbing basically.

And on those rare occasions I do touch rock, it is usually under the guise of teaching some young nymphette the ropes, or checking easy routes for the new guidebook. Providing no one sees me fail dismally on a route, then my upper limit is whatever I want people to believe.

Good luck and hopefully you will get to experience the hedonstic, playboy lifestyle that I still enjoy into my old age.

Although women climbers have the odds stacked in their favour, there do seem to be a high percentage of dud guys.

Personally, I am not complaining because it gives guys like me more of a chance.

But my advice is go for young blood. Forget the ageing whingers (they are a lost cause) and take advantage of some young whipper-snappers out at the Pines. And whatever you do, avoid aid climbers.

Dear Simey,

I am a fit young utility with skills on both sides of my body but missed the draft this year. As I'm kicking my heels for another year and have decided to redpoint Punks Addiction (amongst others) at Arapiles in my time off can you advise me on my chances with the Nati Rams?

I have spent several years training with the best minds in the country and am a leading light in the use of the Eade/Roos run and carry style of football. It is often said I don't break the lines - I create new ones (perhaps a try for the direct start to Serpentine is worth a try too).

While I clearly have plenty to offer I hear the Rams are a top-heavy bunch of shovel heads that still kick torps and play to position. Can I get a game?

Mate, if you can play footy as well as you can talk it, you can start in the centre and then move to full-foward to mark your own ball.

Training is Tuesday and Thursday night starting at 6.15pm at the Nati footy ground (ie Nati paddock).

I'll let our coach (Snake) know that you are coming.

What can I say the man was just born to be incarcerated. Shit tattoo by the way. Almost an update of the great escape for the 80s.

The head of the special forces in the NY film (real name Lee ... something dutch) rocks. He was in "...For a Few Dollars More" with Clint Eastwood and played a bounty hunter. He was ice cold. He iced this guy riding away on a horse by first popping him with a rifle then attaching a stock to his long barrelled pistol and nailing him in the forehead from about 150 metres away.

Didn't Snake get caught for re-using the 'spirit fingers' routine with Quantong last season?
