The one thing you would like to do before you Die?

Just One!

I ask myself this question every year. And for me Travel comes first in my mind.

For me - The Ultimate African Photo Safari. I figure this trip would cost around $25K.

I have not done it yet, because I don't wanna die yet

What is your ultimate one thing that you want to do before you die?

I want to die peacefully in my sleep like grandpa; Not yelling and screaming like the passangers on his bus.

I'm a sucker for "gallows humor", and whether that actually happened or not, was a pretty damn funny comment

Re: The one thing you would like to do before you

Well then you'll love these!

1. Death is God's way of telling you not to be such a wise guy.
2. I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
3. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.
4. Always go to other people's funerals; otherwise, they won't come to yours.
5. Over half the world's population die.
...At no specific time.
6. I have decided to live forever, or die in the attempt.
7. Death to all fanatics!
8. Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time.
9. What happens if you get scared half to death, twice?
10. Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which a person can die.
11. Don't upset me.. I'm running out of places to hide the bodies.
12. I'm not afraid to die. I just don't want to be there when it happens.
13. Death is a part of life. It's just a lot less scary and painful than the rest of it.
14. I can't live with death; he's always leaving the toilet seat up.
15. Give me immortality or give me death.
16. If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that a hostage situation?
17. It's not how you die that matters. It's who you take with you.
18. Don't run, you'll just die tired.
19. Why won't you die?!?!
20. Guns don't kill people; death kills people. It's a proven medical fact.
21. He's not dead; he's electroencephalographically challenged.
22. It's too early in the morning for suicide.
23. Death, taxes and depression: three things you can always depend on.
24. Death is hereditary.
25. It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living. (Terry Pratchett)
26. The more you complain, the longer God makes you live.
27. You should always show up at your funeral.
28. If I die, I'm taking you with me!... oh, -you're- dying? Forget I said anything.

Re: The one thing you would like to do before you

My dad has a golf partner like that. His big complaint is ANY noise while he's hitting the ball.

Good line for ya...last week he's getting ready to putt and stops and says "what was that noise?!?". My dad says there wasnt a single sound, so he told him "Must have been an anchovy farting in alaska...".

He quit whining. Temporarily. I'll have to pass along the $1 a whine suggestion.

Come to think of it, maybe the anchovy was on safari in africa.

Sorry CT, had to tie that back to your thread somehow to shorten up the hijack.

From an Irish song:

"I hope I die before it's my turn to buy another round"
