If your imagination makes connections like the following--

common denominator = Internet
instant access = Internet
go down = Internet

Or

common denominator = Stock market
instant access = Stock market
go down = Stock market

Or

common denominator = Sex
instant access = Sex
go down = Sex

--then you could use a visit to the Imagination Vividification Retreat. At the Retreat you would stay in a reed-thatched hut in the Adirondacks, spear wild boar, follow crystal-clear streams through gypsum caves inhabited by polychromic bats, paint immense canvases using the Pollock/benfrost Tofu Stomp technique, be entertained by the Belly-Dancin' Grandpappys, dine on gidgee skink with witchetty grubs followed by chocolate persimmon flambe...every experience guarranteed to be vivid. No drugs used nor recommended. There's more to the earthly whirl than the Internet, the stock market, and sex--here's one place to find it.

       I'm afraid I don't pass the entrance exam:   

       common denominator = Mathematics
instant access = snack food within reach
go down = Sex
  

       ...but it sounds like fun. Can you put me down for a couple of weeks later this year?

       I don't pass either, but that's down to associating common denominator with Sun readers.

       Rods Tiger: Analysis of your answers indicates you are already more vivid than any of the instructors at the Retreat. Go down and bogey!   

       beauxealt: 2 of 3. Gidgee skinks are actual lizards that live in Oz. They have these fantastic fat tails that look a bit like spiny pinecones.
