What's on your bucket list?

This thread was originally meant to help me find ideas for cool things to buy or do, then I realized that I couldn't find a "bucket list" thread anywhere, so unless I overlooked it..

What's on your bucket list???

I think this is a good idea. Experiences and pursuits of your interests last longer than the lustre of new stuff. In fact, studies on happiness in relation to money show that spending your money on other people, experiences, and on many small things over time makes people happier than large one-time purchases for themselves.

Pick a few Kickstarter projects and fund them. It's a lot of fun to watch some new ideas as they progress.

Thanks for this. I think you're spot on, and hopefully that turns out to be true.

Also, I changed the starting post a bit. Sorry to nullify the quote in your post. :P

I want to:

-bungee jump
-skydive
-fly a plane
-see a great white shark
-see a grizzly bear
-see a blue whale
-hold a huge spider and not descend into hysterics
-take a car around Nürburgring
-perform in a band

The list does goes on but I'll cut it here...What's eye opening is that most of my list is very do-able. I could probably knock out half a dozen of them within a year, even with my other commitments.

I just saw the movie Ted. Banging Mila Kunis is at the top of my list. I would also like to take my kids to Disney world.

Not a fat lot that I've not already done or isn't incredibly impractical, which unfortunately involves most of my travel plans as maintaining a gluten free diet is often really difficult abroad.

I'd vaguely like to learn to fly some day, plane or helicopter don't much mind. Though not so much that I'd do it unless I was wealthy enough to not be concerned by the cost.

Well, I'm hoping I'll get to at least 31, which would still put most of my life ahead of me!
