One man one goal one mission
One heart one soul just one solution
One flash of light yeah one God one vision

There is someone on my FL who often (and by often I mean the majority of his content) posts lists of things he didn't do, or hasn't accomplished.

I can often be accused of not being compassionate, but in my defense, I'm far more open to "walking that mile" in another's shoes than most. My old boss at work keeps it fresh in my head that I haven't re-started my re-write of the first chapter of The Hobbit since I lost it, and I still have my Charlie the Unicorn soundtrack half completed I need to finish - but these are things I've *actually* already started, so I don't think they should count.

Dear readers, I give you the "Top Ten" list of things I have not done:

  1. Discover buried treasure

  2. Climb Mount Everest

  3. Get elected President

  4. Meet the Dalai Lama

  5. Win the lottery

  6. Fly to the moon

  7. Make gold records

  8. Author the 'Great American Novel'

  9. Build a time machine

  10. Bed a supermodel


What haven't you done?

I should read your journal at the end of the day. It puts me to sleep.

I know exactly what you mean. Not as funny when the shoe is on the other foot is it?

How I feel for your unlived life! Truly, I do. I too have so many things that I haven't yet accomplished. Let me explain ... no, there is too much. Let me sum up:
  1. Have sex with Teh Marco.

  2. Have sex with Emile Hirsch.

  3. Have sex with Justin Long.

  4. Have sex with 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously.

  5. Make valuable contributions to superstring theory, while having sex with 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously.

  6. Star in an adult movie having sex with 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously.

  7. Climb K2, while having sex with 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously.

  8. Have a species of trilobite named after me, while having sex with 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously.

  9. Become Supreme Evil Empress of Earth, while having sex with 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously.

  10. Hang out with Jack Vance. (Out of respect to The Master, I wouldn't have sex with 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously until afterwards.)

Re: Great list and good idea.

The things I haven't accomplished seem so mundane compared to some of things you haven't accomplished!

Re: Great list and good idea.

I think the only one I’ll likely pull off is shopping in Istanbul. I’ve never been great at skateboarding.

When I was in the Navy I went to a class for maintaining Satellite transceivers. One of my instructors there was a woman about 3 years older then I was and had run with the bulls. The indented scar was huge.

Re: Great list and good idea.

I've shopped the gold souq's of Bahrain but missed Turkey completely. "No thank you" to the bulls. I get enough adrenaline when a server goes goes down in the middle of the night.

Re: Great list and good idea.

For some reason Navy officers like to push their ships to the limits. There were a couple of time when I could almost walk on the walls. The ship would list so bad.

Not really a problem except when taking shower (The stall walls were stainless steel cold) or trying to sleep.

My turn for an icon question is that Kristen Stewart? I’m not sure.

Re: Great list and good idea.

Yikes. I would be soooo sea sick. That makes up my mind...if I had to join the armed forces it would be the Air Force!

And yes...it is the lovely Kristen Stewart :)

I have not...

1) ... met my own expectations.

2) ... yet gone into space.

3) ... mined the asteroid Icarus for resources.

4) ... yet become immortal (natural aging only, rare event death and suicide are still allowed.)

5) ... yet become as smart as I need to be.

6) ... become as widely recognized as Einstein.

7) ... yet made Alter Aeon 'successful'.

8) ... reproduced or made copies of myself.

9) ... yet uploaded myself into more robust hardware.

10) ... yet become a social adept.

*pffffffffft*

Far, far too critical an analysis. I take personal exception to Nos. 5,7 & 10.
