    Recently a friend of mine went to hospital because he crocked his knee. He has recovered now, plaster off but he had a infection on the leg which he had a op on which had developed. At the time however, the "doctors" said it could be a brain tumour/cancer as he suffered from headaches, not eating, reaction to light, etc. In this state of mind that he was going to die in a few months, he was going on and on about stuff he hadn't done in his life...

    What do you want to do before you die?

    Things i came up with:
    *Jam with someone famous
    *Rob a bank
    *Have the biggest gig ever in my area

    Discuss :D

    (my friends infection was actually very minor and after 24hrs he was fine :eyebrow: good ole doctors 'ey!)

    I would have to go with Purplesaurus Rex Kool-Aid. I guess I want to relive my youth. If I could find _that_, I would die happily.

    Raise my kids to be good people.


    a much less important but still fun list:

    2) build the biggest trebuchet ever.
    3) open a museum of goggles.
    4) drive a submarine.
    5) lead a pack of dogs on some crazy adventure.
    6) learn Japanese. I made it through two semesters at Umass, (I was cooking at Tepan tables, seemed like a good idea) but I've forgotten almost everything.

  19. Snort?!

    The only thing I can think of is "make fun of Syd Barret"
     
  20. Wow, a lot of people said that if they were about to die, the last things they would want to do would be drugs and sex. I think that is the most pathetic thing I've ever heard :( .

    I really like the idea about driving a Ferrari into a giant marshmallow at 140 mph though. Now that's something you just can't do everyday!
