    Perhaps surprising things you've never done

    painted a house exterior

    watched an episode of South Park

    purchased a car less than seven years old
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    The most foolish thing one can do this fall is to vote for Clinton or Trump. Wake up, get out of the matrix, and send a message to the political establishment that you won't play their game.

    Didn't we plow this field once before in another thread? My list. I've never smoked. I've never been over seas. I've never danced with the devil in the pale moon light.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    *** Disclaimer... the UP is not all that awesome. Well, unless you are into small historic towns with ridiculously friendly citizens, undisturbed wilderness, 84 majestic waterfalls, unbelievable coast lines on 3 of the 5 great lakes, white sandy beaches, massive stone cliffs, the best skiing in the Midwest, and a suspension bridge that rivals many of the engineering marvels the US has to offer.

    You know, that kind of junk... Oh heck with it, here is a video to further prove that it's not worth checking out.
