How Many of “The 75 Things Every Man Should Do” Will Get Done?

As I get older I will admit to spending far too much time thinking about the things I have not done.

So I had more than a passing interest when I came across and old article in Esquire magazine titled The 75 Things Every Man Should Do.  Time will not allow for all of the things on the list which the author suggests we should try and accomplish in our lifetime but guys here are some of them:

  • Play rugby.
  • Repair an appliance.
  • Fly the red-eye from Vegas.
  • Fast for three days drinking only water.
  • Drive by yourself from coast to coast.
  • Leave yourself a letter in a library book and look for it 20 years later.
  • Watch a bad movie so many times that when you stumble across it by accident you can recite lines before they are spoken.
  • Scuba dive.
  • Live in a hotel suite for a week.
  • Milk a cow and then drink it.
  • Throw a real party.
  • Shoplift….then return what you stole.
  • Cook the same thing over and over until you are known for it.  (Does ordering take out from the Sandcastle Diner count)?
  • Take care of someone else’s 3-year old for a full day.
  • Sing in public.
  • Play golf at Carnoustie.
