I have the last remaining Actifed IN THE WORLD.
(It's the kind they took of the market five years ago because it was
too easy to convert to amphetamines or something).
This is the only stuff that really worked for me when I had hayfever. Also if you took two of them with a glass of wine it gave you a pretty good buzz.

"Success, depress, ambition. Progress, regress, recognition. I was awakened and realised what I saw and felt were all illusion. Forget and abandon the outside world, and instead seek and feel your inner world. Looking at the stars, the darkness in my heart disappears. Forget and abandon the outside world, and instead seek and feel your inner world. Continue the journey, and you will discover the world some day."
That was tracks 5, 6 and 7 from "69 Love Songs" by The Magnetic Fields released in 1999. (Yes, it contains 69 love songs).
More about Stephin Merritt (Wikipedia).
Some background on Reno Dakota (which is sort of a repost, (apologies to any long time readers actually paying attention to my various obsessions..)):
- Reno Dakota is a documentary film-maker (Stephin is gay),
- Nino Rota is a composer who scored some Godfather I & II and some Fellini films, and
- Pantone 292, well, duh.
(Come back later and listen if you are busy right now. Each of these songs is perfect I think).

...I woke up to find someone named Jon had submitted a score of $215. This was not possible. I was certain it was a hacker who had sniffed out my Leaderboard service. I scrambled to my iPhone and loaded the suspicious bridge and ran the Word Test. I watched in disbelief as Jon's solution did something I had never thought was possible. He had figured out a trick that nobody else had. He is not cheating. He is not a hacker. I am completely blown away by the ingeniousness of his design.
