Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Timely question, as we saw the movie today, and loved it. A local movie theater here has a senior special of 2.65 per ticket, even for first run movies.
As to my bucket, since ER was on the top of the list, I can now scratch that one off. I have a similar list to Jack Nicholson, but don't have the private jet to get there. And I have to wonder how they got permission to ride that motorcycle on the great wall. his assistance is worth his salary and then some.
I also agree with the final sentiments for Jack, "it was illegal" - the ultimate list topper.

Mens ability to see the future is limited by their horizons of today!

And sometimes they'll even have a few recent releases (I checked out Pirates of the Caribbean @ World's End a few weeks ago, not long after it came out on DVD)...
Hey good tip. I'll look into it.

I saw the Bucket List yesterday and really enjoyed it. My twelve year old son did not. I think the theme and ideas were just a bit beyond a twelve year old. I think this movie will strike a chord with a lot of ER types.

Retire date sometime in 2017
