Rolling gives you carpet burns:

Rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin'
Raw hide!

Walking really IS dangerous! I broke my elbow walking! (Wasn't paying attention to what my feet were doing, tripped on a curb, went flying, and snapped my humerus trying to break my fall.)

Never judge a man's ability to walk safely until you've walked a mile in his house. You may discover trip hazards that you didn't know could exist.

Hey, if I enter the comp from out of the US can I pay for postage?

Note from Scott: Sorry, but no. My understanding is that that would open a legal can of worms.

Rolling's too dangerous. You bump into stuff.

I say the perfect 21st Century exercise program is sitting in a recliner and clicking the remote. Perfect training for any desk job, where the only strong muscles you need are in the hand and wrist.

Running from a dog guarantees a bite. Stand your ground and yell loudly.

It works for me and I average 5 miles a day walking. I have also found carrying a few milk bones to throw helps - more than one barker shut up and ran after the milk bone I threw.

Little dogs are easily managed. I find a 9 iron, or better yet, a putter sees them off handily. The 9 iron gets better lift.

Sit on your sofa and tap your foot. That's pretty safe and burns a few calories if you tap vigorously. Nothing safer!

Meyer, obviously you need to find a form of exercise even safer than rolling. I would try rocking, as in a rocking chair. It might be hazardous to your cats; as in they will want to watch their tails, but it should be fine for you.

Walk indoors, like a mall or super Walmart. If you walk around without buying anything or pushing a cart, pretty soon they'll arrest you. That'll get your heart rate up.

What's this about not telling embarrassing stories? Maybe it's a Brit thing, but we love telling each other our most embarrassing stories so we can all have a good laugh.

Actually, it probably is just a Brit thing, when I was in New Zealand and tried it, everybody kept trying to offer me sympathy. This just had the effect of making me feel like I needed sympathy so something bad must have happened. I much prefer laughing about it myself.

That's the main reason that I missed England as NZ is a truly wonderful country.

Or just do what I do and simply befriend every dog ever!

Of course, you're on *they're* side... (they being the cats...hateful allergy-spewing little buggers)

Rolling? As in, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu? You might get a staf infection.

Chicks really dig a guy with a physique optimized by/for rolling.

Crawling is awful. I barely made it from my bar stool to the cab last time.

This one had me on Panel 1... not only Scott's somewhat self-deceptive sense of how 'in shape' he is, but Rick's sarcastic 'agreement' with it FTW.

If you ever want to see the ultimate crawling/rolling performance, go see "The wolf of Wall Street". That scene was the highlight of the movie for me!
