Bucket List Items that will likely not be realized

Post by ed »

I would like to deliver a baby. Not watch, been there, done that. I mean actually participate in the delivery.

I would really like to be a Pip

Just one song, once.

I would like to cross the atlantic by ship/boat. Could do it I suppose. I think that it is one of those things that I would have liked to have done. Sorta a past pluperfect event.

There are more, they will come to me.

Don't like the concept of a bucket list. I find it morbid.

Things I will never do in the future ... because they are gone gone gone ... :cry:

Who put post-it notes all over the sides? What were they afraid to forget?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

It's a big park with a zoo and a children's science museum. Definitely worth visiting on days with no sports events.

The zoo is not big by NYC standards, but has a helluva big bird sanctuary in a geodesic dome.

Also a lot of leftovers from the 1964 World's Fair, such as this thing ==> https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7465737 ... 312!8i6656 :coolspecs:

So far, the best thing in this thread is the concept of the "fuck it list".

I will somehow make a point of adding that to my IRL vocabulary. :)
