    Never did these of those:

    Never been to the viewing level at the top of the Empire State Building.
    Never cared much for Michael Jackson's tunes.
    Never saw The Beatles in concert.
    Never had dinner at The Brownstone Inn @ Au Train, Michigan.
    Never dunked a basketball.
    Never been to a NASCAR race.

    Don't lose sleep over never seeing the Nutcracker, it's grossly overrated.

    Well, I'm only 23. Hopefully I'll get around to doing most of those things, with probably a couple I still won't ever do.

    I've done 9 things on Bear's combined lists (Cubs, O'Hare, Dells, tuxedo, MJ tunes, Sesame Street, karaoke, oil painting, gun) and 4 things on Maister's (thrown up, ipod, emo, straight-ticket).

    Yep, you're young yet.

    I was kind of scared to look at Maister's list, but it seems I've done seven of them.

    I looked at the ofos list, and I see only two there. Of course, he's done things that none of us have done, I'm sure... Read scrolls in the Library at Alexandria, fought in the Peloponnesian War, presided over a Salem witch trial, survived the black plague, stuff like that.
