*Denotes completed item. So it looks like I need to get busy.

I saw this on a Web site and it looked interesting. I did change the asteriks to show which ones I've done. I also found some more suggestions for the list. They include:

-Have a posterity as numerous as the seed of Abraham
-Turn an enemy into a friend*
-Turn a friend into an enemy*
-Write a best-selling book
-Confront a bigger man until he backs down*
-Violate each of the 10 commandments. In order
-Visit Red Square and moon Lenin's Tomb
-By God, as unrealistic as it is, you still have to add Go Into Space
-See a game at Yankee Stadium, Fenway, Wrigley, Dodger Stadium, Lambeau, Soldier Field, Texas Stadium, Cameron Indoor Arena, and Pac Bell (yes it's new and named after a corporation but already a classic ballpark)
-Eat at a southern Waffle House at 3 in the morning on a weekend*
-Walk the Appalachian Trail
-Drink Purple Jesus at Disneyland(-world)
-Ride horseback in rural Mongolia
-Pee on a National Monument
-Dance at my daughters' weddings
-Be subpoenaed, period.*
-See Antarctica
-Spend a year with Zevon's "Lawyers, guns, and money" as your credo
-Go down rapids, without a boat
-Speak to an audience of over a thousand people
-Spray paint your own car
-See a solar eclipse* (author's note: through the shoe box aluminum foil contraption)
-Make your father proud (author's note: hopefully someday)
-Conduct business on the phone while naked*

Let me know if you can think of anymore and which ones you've done. But as for me, I've got a long ways to go...
