51. Visited Ireland
53. In a restaurant, sat at a stranger’s table and had a meal with them (if college dining halls count)
58. Sung karaoke
80. Gotten a tattoo (if temporaries count)
87. Eaten shark
94. Spoken more than one language fluently (for certain values of "fluently")
110. Broken someone’s heart (for certain values of "broken someone's heart")
130. Gone back to school (assuming they mean after high school)
133. Eaten fried green tomatoes
135. Selected one "important" author who you missed in school, and read
149. Caused a car accident (if scratches in a parking lot count)

I think some of them, whilst not particularly 'desirable' - like the Bucket List - are more a 'well rounded individual' kinda things, 'into every garden a little rain must fall'.

Some of the list was very American-centric, and some of them, well I don't think anyone should or would aspire to, and aren't the sort of thing that happens to everyone eventually - like the losing 100 lbs. And some of us will never have the talent to write our own computer language.

But overall I think it's a pretty good list,

If orangutans can write a programming language, how hard can it be?

Yeah, it's pretty localized. What would be added for other countries?

No, but I hope someday to be nominated. No, I was walking through a state forest after a fire, lugging an Indian pump and hitting hot-spots.
Feb. 7th, 2008 07:46 am (UTC)
Oooh. You do fire patrol? I tip my hat to you.

I agree on the hope. I made the decision long ago: even if I don't ever get nominated, I consider it my duty to live a life worthy of the nomination.

Have the best
