    having watched the film 'The Bucket List' with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson last night I've found myself making my own list (for anyone not familiar with the film/concept a bucket list is a list of things to do before you 'kick the bucket'). So far I've come up with:

    1. Go on Safari
    2. Learn to play the Piano
    3. Learn sign language
    4. Become a father
    5. Build a writing desk (not flatpack)
    6. Own a boat

    I was surprised by how little I could think of, at 26 I thought I'd come up with loads of stuff about owning things or having money and then when I really thought about it I realised I don't actually give a **** about any of that....

    Anyone else gone through a similar exercise? anyone got a bucket list they'd like to share?

    I want a Wikipedia page about me, and I don't mean one I have created, I mean a proper one, that someone else has made like Richard Yoo has.

    Right don't laugh but: (random order though)

    1. Go to space
    2. Own R&D centre and invent wicked cool stuff that will change the world
    3. Speak 5 languages
    4. Own an island, yacht and a jet.
    5. Witness flying cars and colonisation of other planets.

    Shame only point 3 is actually possible but since it's a bucket list :D

    In order of the likelihood and chronological time that these will be completed:

    1. Run a marathon.
    2. Learn to share the Gospel in another language.
    3. Become a black belt.
    4. Learn to play piano - properly.
    5. Raise my sons to become mighty men of valor.
    6. Pay off my house.
    7. Celebrate my 50th wedding anniversary.
    8. Travel to space.
    9. Finish strong. :gos

    Josiahb, based on your byline, I think you need to add "analyze spam" to your bucket list (unless you've already finished that)

    1) jump in the water in a flimsy aluminium cage with a great white lurking about
    2) Go on safari with my family
    3) Go to New Zealand (again)
    4) become a guitar virtuoso (or even just play really well)
    5) Walk the Great Wall of China for a charity
    6) run a marathon

    in no particular order, just off the top of my head:)
