    1. To engage in one endeavor without compromise, affectation or hypocrisy.
    2. To have the courage and fortitude and to Love someone more than myself and have the good furtune to have it reciprocated.
    3. To leave the world better than I found it. To make a difference.

    I'm hoping that your still young. Besides living from the back of my car in NYC, I've lived in Boston for 18 years, NY state for 2, MI for a long time and now Seattle. The rest of them are actually not the hardest to get done.

    A solar eclipse does sound good tho. Up until this year, seeing the Red Sox win the World Series was very high on my list of life experiences (#1 prolly). Now I need to reorganize :D

    1. I'd like to celebrate Christmas in Bethlehem without fear of suicide bombers, terrorists, or other fundamentalist groups trying to kill me for my religious beliefs.

    2. I want to traverse the United States the way Lewis and Clark did in the nineteenth century.

    3. I want to be able to participate as an athlete and win a medal in a Summer Olympic Games.

    They don't sting, lost the ability over the years trapped in brackish water on a tiny island. There is a national geographic episode on it. There are millions in this small lake and they follow the sun across the lake, living on the bacteria in their stomachs that produce goods from the sunshine. pretty cool though, it goes against the grain at first. Got video of us to prove we did it.

    Swimming with sharks... It is one of those things that I have been wanting to do for a long time. It is like climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge. I did that last year with my Wife and Brother (a birthday I will never forget) and it was excellent, i would do it again. I was almost talked into swimming with the sharks last year at Sea World on the Gold Coast, but I said no, but now I will do it.

    Done ;). Actually, I have seen two.

    What I want to do... My own - and only mine - company.
    Save enough $$$ to spend my last 10 years without working.
    Learn more languages and travel to their countries.

    Hey, Only 3 things is not much... I'm young enough to think about doing more. :)

    My three things:
    -Get married
    -Spend six months in Europe
    -Conduct the Boston "Pops" Orchestra

    In that order. =) Why go to Europe with nobody special to go with?

    July 11th, 1991, yes, that was wonderful since I saw the dog going to sleep for a couple of minutes, the animals in a farm behaving like if it was night... Nice experience, the second one was 99, I guess, but didn't enjoy that one since it was not my best day and was in a place where you can just look around and see dark, just like that, I did like the 91 eclipse...

    Edit: I traveled back to our time, 19991 >>> 1991 ;)

    1. Ride on the space shuttle and orbit in space for a while.
    2. Ride in an insanely powerful aircraft such as an F-15.
    3. Learn to drive a race car.

    I figure I can at least do #3 in my life. I have some other wishes, but I'd get banned from the board if I described them. ;)

    Interesting choices!

    I would definitely recommend London, considering I live there. Always find it amusing when americans say 'Europe' as a place. It has such a range of cultures, nationalities and flavours it is impossible to pin down as one place. Go everywhere you can, it is a wonderful continent.

    As for your second, I'd recommend getting laid – you can always use public transport or get a taxi.

    Well, so long as you don't want to actually win. I don't think they can fit enough cylinders in a motor for Ford to win Bathurst at the moment :p.
