Too much egg nog, maybe

Speaking of weird dreams, I just took a short nap, just long enough to wake up with the weird notion that my intestines go backward in time. Somehow, I was able to eat and eat and eat and stay thin as a rail—the food would travel back in time as it passed through my alimentary canal and thus couldn't be digested.

I need to quit reading so much weird science fiction (I just finished Geoffrey Landis' Approaching Perimelasma).

Have you read PKD's Counter-clock World?

No; looking at some of the summaries and reviews, it looks really weird and surreal; maybe not the best thing to cut one's Dick teeth on.

The premise looks similar to (but presumably far better developed than) an old Star Trek Cartoon episode titled "The Counter-Clock incident" which manifested a lot of the oddities of a time-reversed world without exploiting or even exploring any of the paradoxes.

This is distressingly reminiscent of an incident in the _Marvel Zombies_ book I gave Bar for Christmas :)

If you could figure out how to make that work in the real world, you would make a fortune!
