Bucket List

Postby TheBlackCat » 03.03.13 1:19pm

I was wondering if anyone else has a bucket list. I didn't have a formal one, but I do have a bunch of things I wanted to do. I actually already did many of them, ones I have done have a star. In no particular order:

* Visit the pyramids in Egypt
* Go in King Tut's tomb
* Visit Machu Pichu
* Visit the Great Wall
* Visit Alaska
* Visit the Grand Canyon
See the Terracotta Warriors
* See living stromatolites
Go to the Galapagos Islands
* Go to the Amazon rainforest
* Go on an African safari
Go to Ayers rock
SCUBA dive in the great barrier reef
* Watch a wild predator hunt (it ended up being lions)
* Fly an airplane
* See and use a supercomputer
See Antarctica (even from a distance)
* Walk on a glacier

Wild animals to see:
* Manatees
Kangaroos
Wombats
* Bats
Koalas
Flying foxes
* Dolphins
* Whales
* Rhinos
Giant tortoises
Marine iguanas
Andean condor (I have basically zero chance of seeing more than one)
* Cheetahs
* Lions
* Hyraxes
* Mantis shrimp (in an aquarium but good enough)
* Electric eel (aquarium again, that was close enough)
Echidnas and/or platypuses

Wow. The amount of things you've already done on that list are incredible, considering how awesome they are. Congratulations, and I really do envy you. Especially about Egypt. I've only ever been out of the country once, and it was when I was 3.

I don't really have a Bucket List. I suppose I have two things, really:

Travel the world and see places like the Pyramids of Giza, the ones in South America (of various cultures), Great Wall of China, Western Europe...

Have a family.

That's really about it.

I am not sure this is typical, but I would consider a bucket list to include things that are not part of the "normal" life cycle (go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, retire, etc.).

I just have a dream to be able to see the Earth from space. But unfortunately that will probably never happen. *sigh*
I'd like to visit Japan, as well.

I had considered putting "go to space" as an item on my brief list, but then realized, why bother? It would probably not happen.

Isn't the point of a bucket list to list things you really and truly want to do before you die? I never really had a functioning family growing up, I want to make sure I create a good one.

At a red light, ask someone to roll down their window. Whilst i am in a punch buggy, punch the person in the other car. XD
