Do you have a list of things you want to do before you die?

I want to bungee jump off the same dam in Switzerland that James Bond did in the movie GoldenEye. It's called the Contra Dam. There's a commercial bungee jumping operation there now.

Wow I wish I had something cool like that on my list of things to do.

I want to go to japan, build a sauna, create a perfect aquascape with my fish hobby, build the pond out back, do some backpacking.

...I kind of want to splurge and get a sleeper cabin on the train some time. Just to do it, you know? I could take off my shoes. Watch Netflix without headphones. Use the bathroom at my leisure, without having to worry about rascals rifling through my bags. Don't know but I'd actually use the shower, but it'd be nice to have the option.

The Empire Builder has sleepers with showers. You can get a cabin for an extra hundred bux or so over the normal Milwaukee-to-Minot rate.

I mean, if I'm already takin the train instead of a plane, like why not treat myself just oncet. It'd be fun. I could pretend I was Cary Grant in 'North by Northwest'.

I mean the polar express is one of my favorite Christmas movies so I'm all for all things relating to train enjoyment. Our trains suck...i have to ride the train when I go into the city and the LIRR.....lets just say if there was ever a place to find mutant DNA, it's there.

I would like to visit Iceland. See the Aurora Borealis, visit the Blue Lagoon. Check out the Golden Circle. All seems pretty cool.

...I want to do more cool guy action movie stuff at some point. At Scout camp I once leapt a fifteen foot gap, and I gave a warrior cry and sliced a watermelon perfectly in half with a sword, and I forged a horseshoe, and I split a playing card at ten paces with a thrown tomahawk, and I sang 'Shaving Cream' to riotous applause, and I scared a bear off by leaping at it and yelling like a mentalcase (you know, people say bears are more scared of us than we are of them, which just lends further credence to my longstanding theory that people often are incorrect). But there's more I want to do. I mean, the equestrian biz is out the window, as is the stupid stuff ('find a unicorn and beat it in a hot dog-eating contest' is probably a zero-sum game at best, and 'mollify cthulhu with a macaroni necklace' is dumb and unrealistic for multiple reasons), but I really want to slide someone comedically down the bar in a bar fight, and do a moonsault on someone, and execute a perfect j-turn, and step on a bad guy's face and then spin on my heel like Chun-Li in the Vega fight, and run across a bayou on crocodiles' snouts like in 'Pitfall' or stupid-ass 'Live and Let Die'.

[EDIT]Feh. First part of my post reads like a drunken hillbilly version of 'Handlebars'.

I need to figure out where Mommy keeps the dynamite....

For real, some of that stuff like the bar slide & such would be awesome to recreate.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

...heck, I'd let someone slide me down the bar. It'd be fun, and funny. Like a Slip'n'Slide, but with the added bonus of spilled drinks and broken glassware and extreme cranial trauma when you slam head-first into the register.

I've been very fortunate and already completed some of my bucket list... seeing the Southern Lights and the Northern Lights, watched a full lunar eclipse and ridden in trains through Europe. Yet to be fulfilled... experience the totality of a solar eclipse, become fluent in 3 other languages and stay in those countries, and cross the Nullabor in the Indian Pacific train. :D
She lives in the clouds and talks to the birds...

Happiest faerie of VGF.

^Do you know German yet?

German is preternaturally easy for English-speakers, inasmuch as German and English are two dogs from the same litter. Don't have to learn a whole new alphabet or anything----------plus, German is supremely efficient with words. Like the French, they're obsessed with keeping their frightening devil language pure, so rather than taking on loan words (as the less goofy peoples of the world do), they cobble a new word together out of old words. That's how the German word for 'tissue' (the Kleenex kind, I mean) came about---------they stuck 'speedy', 'pocket' and 'towel' together like Voltron. 'Tempotaschentuch'. The nouns are all capitalised for ease of use, and pronunciation is....relatively simple. The rules are pretty straightforward.

^"The nouns are all capitalized" sounds like a joke about how German speakers always sound like they're shouting. ;)

Or you could do a joke about the nouns being in line for capital punishment. The serif was called in to testify about the shooting of the deputy, the articles in question were declared indefinite, and thereafter the case became all too accusative. Nearly as tense as the past perfect. You could have had fooled me at some point.
