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?
Here were some of the answers.
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.
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.
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 FallingGiphy
Skydiving, not for me, no no, nu-huh.
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.
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."
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 ExhaustingGiphy
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.
I would be fine having a lot of money through hard work, but I have no desire at all to be famous.
