A) Should I have clothes on??

B) Who's going to notice?? 
Your flatmate. Or are you playing "Here's Jonny!" with her?
Actually, we did decide to stage a 4 person production of Steven King's classic. Our budget is low but we have incredible talent.

Zinc, multi vitamins, probiotics. Tablets for prostate, ED, hot flushes and PMS. And puberty blockers. What am I missing?
Paracetamol.

Chocolate and a cat compress are best for PMS. Cat compress can be substituted with human hugging, but it isn't as effective.
No, those are the tablets I'm taking every day! Saving paracetamol (NOT ibuprofen!) for when I catch it/suicide.

Well the REAL drugs for one. 

What's there to do but spend a vacation from the world in the fashion of Hunter S. Thompson.

I remember watching "Fritz the Cat" at the PPP in Oxford. I say "watched" but I slept through most of it. (FYI falling asleep during animated movies, which I do all the time, is therefore not a sign of age.)

I suppose you never considered the Navy? Where can you learn to fly, play in sports and skin dive, study oceanography?

The brochure said flying and skin diving were mutually exclusive. I couldn't have my cake and eat it too.

The seals seemed extremely interesting though.

Plus there's the whole empire building thing, Chomsky got to me before they did.

Who is the dedicated eater of gone-off food in your family? In ours I'm the lucky one!

Do you think the Chinese will declare a war on us in a couple of weeks or will they decide that we're already done for?

They're much more forward thinking, it's inevitable that the Chines pull a tried and true US colonial war tactic. 

Gift us masks coated with MSG (preferably that in General Tso's chicken), thereby guaranteeing costumers for their US forward operating bases, i.e. cheap chines takeout joints. 

True passive achievement

It's the only logical conclusion.
