Well I cant think of as many things as Q_Zhang but a few are:

See as much of the world as possible.
Sail in as many top regattas around the world as I can.
And eventually stay still long enough to get married and have kids!

Maybe you just have to find a partner you can run to church with

Great topic.

I'm not sure I would put together a list though. I have found, for me, that having goals is just a means to disappointment. I have much more enjoyed not having an set plan or goals, and letting things happen as they may.

I do, Q_Zhang, have some questions on your list, though.

Quoting Q_Zhang

Light a match with .22 rifle

I assume this must be possible. How does one do this?

Quoting Q_Zhang

Ordering liquid nitrogen to make the "world's smoothest ice-cream"

Again, what are the details behind making smooth ice-cream using liquid nitrogen.

Quoting Q_Zhang

Invent my own encryption code

Fantastic! Not a goal that I think most people would think of, but I know some people I work with you will think that's the coolest thing ever.

Quoting Q_Zhang

Become familiar with the works of 10 of the greatest writers of all time

And, who are the 10 greatest writers of all time?

Everyone has their own way of doing things. If it works for you, go with it! Don't take this personally, but I'm not going to answer any of your questions. Philosophically, for me, it's all about the journey. The goal is just a road sign and not very important. Finding the road is apart of what I feel enriches my life about the journey. I know how some of the 90 things are done, and I've done some of them, but most I don't know how.

I was actually given a book on this topic for my 27th birthday in April... I don't remember the name of the author unfortunately but I'll check it up for you! He's British (the author), and the book is simply a list with 101 things to do before you die. It's great, for each thing to do there is a form to fill out with details...
