    1) Climb a big f*cking mountain.

    2) Off-road endurance race. Ideally the Baja 1000

    3) Fly a small plane under a bridge.

    4) Buy a G5 Powerbook and chat on Macrumors.

    I'm guessing that you know German (being in Austria)? Harking back to high school, flügtag means "fly day" Seems fitting for the activities of the day. Unless you are referring to the umlaut, in which case I haven't a clue.

    it's probably called flugtag for the same reason americans say leiderhosen, and not "leatherpants." it just sounds better in the original.

    unless, as stoid suggested, you're questioning the umlaut -- is it incorrect? if so, it was probably added by marketing to make it seem wacky and fun. because umlauts (as all americans are taught in elementary school, in an educational filmstrip starring john wayne) = nutty foreigners.

    but yeah, i can confirm that, flug normally has no umlaut.

    -Low orbit sky diving. You wanna talk an adrenalin rush? Imagine jumping off at 2 miles up. :D

    -I want to see the Earth from orbit before I die. That is my ultimate goal. One glimpse. Not a dang picture. The real deal.

    Help build a Habitat for Humanity house (time's the issue at the moment)
    Build my own house!
    Grow up to be Boo Radley.
    Travel.

    And, in the "as long as I'm dreaming, I want a pony" category:

    I want more time. Spending all my life working for a living bites. So many things I would rather do, and none of them that would support me in ANY lifestyle, much less the one to which I'm accustomed. :mad:

    -Meet a member of the opposite sex that isn't annoying (harder than it seems).
    -Upgrade this damned computer.
    -Get the new engine/trans for my car.
    -Pass my film class with a B so I don't have to repeat it.

    I know they aren't huge achievements but I was never one for a ton of excitement and danger. When you guy reenter the atmosphere, I'll be in my back yard with a tall cool glass of lemonade giving you guys thumbs up!

    Things I plan on this year.

    perform my comedy set at open mike night.
    get my brand new whip - either a g35 coupe or BMW Z4 roadster
    pick up chicks with the aforementioned whip.
    quit my job and get my travel on - Hawaii, NY, maybe Europe.
    jump out of a plane from 10000 feet and not get killed.

    And down the road.

    run for political office and become the next Bill Clinton.
