My Bucket list

Everyone's gonna die. . . . that's right, including you. . .

Was at a funeral at the end of '09 and the pastor at the church presiding over the service gave a sermon that I actually listened to. . .he lamented on how guy simply refuse to acknowledge that they are going to die and thus sort out their lives before they go and end up leaving a humongous mess what with wives crawling out of the woodwork and having relatives fighting over mundane patches of infertile land. All this would have been avoided by simply writing a comprehensive will. . .. nothing trumps a lawyer with a document with your signature on it. 

many also go with a million and 1 regrets. . . wishing they had been nicer to that neighbour, gotten the balls to ask that girl out those many decades ago, wishing they didnt blow that cash on a silly coasto trip or investing in that fishy pyramid like scheme. . . and so on . . truth is all these characters are in denial of a very simple truth. . . .we all have limited lives. . .and the sooner we start doing things we like the happier we will be. On this note the following are the things I would like to do before I kick that big 'ol Bucket. . ..who knows maybe tomorrow. . . .

  1. Sail around the world in one huge yacht/ship/dhow/raft anything that can float
  2. Get every single countries stamp on my passport
  3. Go sky diving and fall for like 10 minutes(not sure if that's possible but al sure try)
  4. Overcome each and every phobia I have. . . .this am sure will be hardest but then again I aint getting any other chance. . . 
  5. Go to space even if for minutes or seconds. . 
  6. Get a personal Autograph from my childhood heros Stone cold Steve Austin, Jim Carrey, etc. . . 
  7. push the button to detonate an explosive that causes a phenomenal explosion (whaaat?. . . its my list)
  8. Meet an Alien. . . (I know al need a stick of weed for that one. . . )
  9. Get twentyseventeen kids that will be running all round the house breaking things an being a real pin in the neck. . . 
  10. Spend a year in tibet with the monks. . . .
  11. Appear on the cover of the Times for whatever reason. . . .worlds most prolific criminal would do. . . 
  12. Create a simple yet ingenious invention that will put me in science books for the rest of eternity thomas edison style. . .
  13. Save a life or two
I know I may not even get to half on this list but writing it down is a start. . . . Whats in your list?
