This is a thing my brother and my friend and I do. It began sometime in 2006 but was probably festering in my brother's synapses long before that. It's about this and that, and probably nothing at all. Facedowns are from over 2 dozen countries and at least 10 American states… and counting, of course.

Some of our favorites include wasps, the dmz, precarious sculpture, the vatican, gambia, the naked cowboy, salvation, and a very sad koala.

How do you end up inside the koala enclosure?

(this is awesome, by the way)

re: the koala... it was a really dingy little "wildlife park" for tourists on the way to phillip island. the way it works is you ask nicely, lay down on the ground, and hope to god it doesn't shit like a bird.

apparently you can hold them at some places in queensland, but in victoria we had to make do with a facedown!

This sounds unbelievably kinky.

This is hilarious and random. I heartily approve.

Not much variety, have you considered facing the other way?

This appeals to my sense of wacky.

Finally an answer to the age old question "why do we have faces?"
