To join the Lying Down Club, you must be photographed horizontal. Arms straight and flat against your sides, body rigid, and face down. Like you are a human ironing board. Then upload your photo to Facebook and add it to the Lying Down Game's photos. That's it. This simplest of concepts became one of the biggest hits on Facebook this year. It's a whole new kind of fun invented by the internet just for you.

Go to this site and ask it a question. Do you want to know what the general consensus is on Barack Obama's administration? What people think about Jaffa Cakes? Whether X Factor is still any good? This site will tell you. It searches Google, Yahoo or Bing.com (or all three) and summarises the positive and negative answers it finds, then shows you a simple chart. Use it to win bets and prove your points in school essays.
