People Share Their Anti-Bucket List Of Things They'll Never Do Before They Die

The concept of a bucket list is a cool way to track miniature or major life goals. Once you've checked something off your bucket list, you feel accomplished. But what about the opposite--things you honestly hope you'll never do, or have accepted has passed you by before your time is up?


u/phlux asked:

Whats on your Anti Bucket List, things you know and accept you'll die not having done?

Here were some of the answers.

Definitely Uncommon

Giphy

Throwing a fragmentation grenade.

I know I could do it, but too often I've thrown things somewhere and accidentally hit something not supposed to hit. I'd have too much fear that I'd just yeet that thing 3m in front of me instead of far away.

realultralord

Army here, it doesn't really hit you how easily you'd be turned to paste until after it explodes. So it feels pretty cool.

A Large Obstacle

Flying a plane. I am colorblind thus I cannot get a pilots license. I personally find it ironic since people with my specific brand of color blindness were roped into the Air Force in WW2 because they could distinguish German camouflage from the skies.

Unlacqua

You could definitely still do this with an instructor in the plane.

CTBioWeapons

This is correct. It's called TIF or Trial Instructional Flight*. They take off and land, you get to fly whilst in the air.

Horizons To Broaden

I wanted a stamp on my passport before I turned 30.

...I hope I have a stamp on my passport before I turn 40.

Go to Thailand they will stamp the f*ck out of your passport.

Moose Are So Large And So Dumb

Ride a moose.

But imagine just how majestic you'd look.

I want to ride a bear, this is actually something I want to do

Probably ten years ago someone in Sweden rode a moose like it was a horse. Saddle and everything. When it reached media they forbid him to proceed with the moose riding, and I believe that it is now forbidden to break in a moose here.

Catch Me I'm Falling

Giphy

Skydiving, not for me, no no, nu-huh.

satakentia

I went once. Once. Tandem, instructor was about a foot shorter than me. They land, you hold your knees up. I took the entire landing on one leg and limped for two weeks.

For anyone curious, you only feel like your falling the first few seconds. About the same as a rollercoaster drop. Relativity. The ground is so far away theres nothing to really visually attune you.

It's Just Not Time

I'll never leave the solar system on a multi-generational colony ship headed for another star. There's just no way, bro.

Brother_Wayne_Kramer

Even just getting into space. Sure, in my lifetime it's probably achievable, but I'm not selling everything for the experience.

shaftautopump

I'm 45. As a kid I was 100% certain there'd be a colony on Mars by now and I'd go. The colony still has time, but I sure ain't going with a family.

I'll never leave earth. But I guess I'll always have No Man's Sky.

It's Only A Thought For Now

Crack. I'm sure it's great. Anything that great is always compared to crack, so I'm sure crack is amazing. The best foods "taste like crack," the best video games are "as addictive as crack."

GhostalMedia

My personal rule is that if I live to 80 or get a terminal disease before then, I'll try hard drugs, but if/until that happens, I'm staying away.

No Big Spiders Ever

I'm an arachnophobe, so both Brazil and Australia are definitely on my f*ckit list.

I'm not scared of being bitten. I have a phobia. I don't want to SEE a spider any larger than a tarantula. If I came across a bird eater or a Huntsman, I'd have a panic attack. I understand it's rare to run in to one, but still, no thanks.

Money Is Exhausting

Giphy

Boy, this list would be huge. But #1 is being crazy rich. You know, soccer players level of richness. Even if I managed to get this amount of money, I feel like living in high society must be so tiring, I don't want to experience this lol.

Freakz0rd

I tell you what, everyone pitch in and give me money and I'll write an extensive paper, and even film a documentary about living in high society so you'll know if it's actually good or not.

spaghettiAstar

I would be fine having a lot of money through hard work, but I have no desire at all to be famous.

If you've ridden in a convertible with the top down, or on a motorcycle with a helmet with no face plate, you've probably gotten a bug caught in your throat at some point. Usually, though, you cough and sputter for a bit and the ordeal is over and done with. Sometimes things don't go so smoothly.

Reddit user LucasTheBrazilianGuy shared his epic tale of mental and physical injury at the hands (feet?) of a mere insect.

Fair warning: this one is fairly graphic, and definitely nightmare fuel for anyone who doesn't like insects (and even if you do).

But my soul is pure....

No matter who we love.... our significant others, or agents, our clients, fans or loved ones... it's never enough! And artists need the validation. That validation will help change the world. We're all trapped in moments but when we're most lucid we can change humanity! We should never fear the things we believe in; especially if it leads to progress.....

Redditor u/spankthewhitewhale wanted to unburden a few feelings by asking.... What comes across as selfish but actually isn't?

Human history is pretty cool. We document ourselves in all kinds of different ways, whether it be through art, or architecture, or stories--museums exist to preserve these artifacts of the human race. One day, we might find things we know well in a museum.

What is the hallmark of your creed? By that, we mean--each and every person has their own set of values and rules to live by. Those things define our choices, and therefore, those things define us.

Fate is fickle, and bad things seem to happen for no discernible reason. Sometimes, though, things just barely avoid going horribly wrong.
