Wed Mar 11, 2020 5:25 am

Do you guys have a bucket list you can share, while crossing off the things you already did?

I use B&Q or screwfix specials in the garden and for DIY at home as the handle makes it easy to carry and I don’t care if I damage as it’s cheap https://www.screwfix.com/p/plastic-buil ... 4ltr/64253

For the horses we use ‘tub trugs’ as they are not sharp when/if they break.
http://www.faulks.co.uk/tubtrugs-flexible/

Small for feed, medium wide for large feeds, large for water and very large for soaking hay.

The tractor uses an 8ft wide bucket that’s about 1/2m^3 capacity, mostly used for manure but in the summer often filled with earth for filling rabbit holes.

Two biggest things currently on my bucket list:
The Collings Foundation out of Houston offers flight experiences in A-4's and F-4's. I would love to do the ride in the F-4, though its about a 45 minute experience and it'll set you back about $13,000. My bonus comes out every January and I've gotten close to pulling the trigger, but something has always come up the last couple of years.

Next on the list is a self drive safari trip through Namibia. I should be checking this one off next year.

It's list of things that you want to do before you die. I'd be interested in hearing the OP's, but that's probably too much to ask.

In terms of music, I would love to perform a violin concerto with an orchestra. Not picky about which one (I'd even do one of the "east" Baroque ones), but my favorite one ever written is Paganini 4: I'm nowhere near that level.

Neither. I’m pushing 71 and am only in my fifth year of lessons. So, I don’t have the time left to get good enough. If in fact I learn to play the music of The Great American Songbook I will be very happy. As for Paganini... oh, my...!

I'll risk angering the moderators then: having sex with an Asian woman. I could always pay for it , but it's not the same (also 5+ years with GF make it difficult)

    My favorites are Gershwin, Debussy, and pieces by Nazareth (a Brazilian composer). Not too much of a Chopin fan, although his music is beautiful. To play however, I think it is a bit over-the-top. And yes, I can play most of them reasonably well.
    I am now working on "Rhythm" from Gershwin and "Claire de Lune" from Debussy.

    I don't get it. The feeling is the same whether you have sex with an Asian or a Western woman. The differences are for porn movies.

    Things were so much easier when I was a teenager. You only had one thing on your bucket list (term hadn't been invented yet) and it didn't matter if she was black, white or green. :)

    I think you mean play the piano part of the Rachmaninov 2nd concerto. (If you were playing the whole concerto, you'd have to change seats pretty frequently.)

    To my way of thinking, a "bucket list" should be made up of items that can be attainable with effort. Maybe something that is currently out-of-reach, but with some perseverance can be grasped.

    Climbing Everest, is so far out of my reach, that its appearance on my bucket list would be folly. A list full of that kind of stuff would be a list of failures. But, running a marathon would not be so far-fetched.

    The wife and I have been ticking off items (locations) on our respective bucket lists over the last few years, because we've come to realize that life is short and unpredictable.

    Some of the places checked off:

    The Grand Canyon and its environs.
    Las Vegas
    The Keys & Everglades
    The Air Force Museum
    Natural Bridge, KY
    Washington D.C.
    Kitty Hawk
    Rome

    Some of the places still on the list:
    Washington D.C. again, but this time tours of The White House and The Capitol.
    Japan, Tokyo maybe?
    Barcelona
    Germany, I've been to Frankfurt, but I'd love to see the country-side. Visit a schloss or two.
    The North Rim
    Ireland
    London & Manchester (my daughter wants to see the home of Manchester United)

    Other things on the list:
    Run a marathon
    Visit with each of my 5 best friends from middle and high school. Each lives in a different city. I'll be joining 3 of them in St. Louis for The Stones in June.
    When seconds count...the police are minutes away.

    Oh no, no it isn't ;)

    Mine is simple:

    - More travelling.
    - More reading.
    - More getting outdoors and away from it all.
    - Get an online Master's Degree.

    Do we speak of the coefficient of friction? I once met a guy who had a girl friend nearly 20 years his senior. He explained to me that all vaginas are similar.
    Though I believe vagina sizes grow with body height.
    I would assume that not all women in one country are the same in their behavior.
    Or is this some dominance and submission stuff? But then "50 shades of grey" also sells in the West.
    I'm really not quite sure what we speak about here. Could we be a bit more specific?

    Coefficient what? Its sex, not math :rotfl:

    Women (and I'm assuming men as well) from different parts of the world, all bring their own exoticness and differences to the bedroom.

    In my case it's just a fetish, I don't think there's a scientific explanation. Maybe after a few hours with the shrink I could find one. Regular western white male fantasies. (I do have a more hardcore fetish but that's not something I like to tell in online forums).

    I do have more inocent things in my BL: paradiving is one. I'd love to fly in a very fast jet (backseat, I'm no pilot). As a fan of Top Gear/TGT, riding in a very fast sport car is also a nice idea.

    Fair enough. Have you made efforts to get yourself there? Depending on where you are at, that should not be very difficult. . .

    .


    The hardcore stuff is fine, but you should look into hiring a pro for that. Perhaps is it possible to roll that into an Asian woman experience -no need to answer if you do not like to-? If so, a skilled prostitute is always better than chancing it with some bar floozie or work-friend lady.

    It does matter if she is green. Those sort of interactions on a post mortem woman can lead to disastrous levels of infection.
