Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.
I’m not going to try to get a better job so I can afford to start a family, I’m just lying flat.

A dedicated and skilled guitarist and songwriter best known for his role in the British classic rock band Queen. Despite being slightly overshadowed by singer Freddie Mercury, May has contributed largely to the Queen catologue and, being overall the most well-versed guitarist out of the four Queen members, was invaluable to the group. He penned many of Queen's finer tracks, including "White Queen," "Brighton Rock," "The Prophet's Song," "Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)," and of course the world-famous "We Will Rock You." His trademark as a guitarist is the large amount of overdubs he often employs in his work, such as the solo to "Killer Queen".

May also has an intense interest in astrophysics; in fact, he was earning his PhD in the early days of Queen, but dropped out of college to work on music full-time. Then, in 2007, he picked up where he left off and officially attained his PhD. He has also co-written a book on the history of the universe.

Brian May (or, rather, the 1970's version of May) is often lusted after--or, put more innocently, "crushed on"--by female Queen fans who sometimes identify themselves as "Mayniacs." Not that the author of this definition has anything in common with those people, of course...*nervous laughter*
Brian May's excellence as a guitarist and songwriter is apparent on tracks such as "Brighton Rock" and "The Prophet's Song."

Guitarist for one of the greatest bands of all time, Queen. He wrote more songs than any member of the band other than Freddy. He is quite possibly the greatest guitarist ever to grace this earth with his blissfully lascivious guitar playing.
Briam May was a cornerstone of the best band in the world during the 70's.
