Already had that but I probably would like to have sex again.
Oh and sex in a public place. :-)
Well I guess there's more things left to try out but that's more for some 'other' forum.

Well I would say "finish a game" but if I really wanted it, I would do it. That's more something for a fairy that grants me 3 wishes where I could go ahead and say "Give me the skills to finish a game", "Give me the motivation to finish a game", "Give me the money to finish a game".

Oh and yeah outerspace. Kinda depending on how humanity gets when I still live. I'll never have the 40 million dollars to buy a space trip, but once it gets down to let's say $1000 I'd do it.

1) A son and a Daughter (or maybe more than one of each)
2) Own a piece of land big enough to ride a horse on (Note: I don't actually want the horse, just the land)
3) Set foot on all 7 continents (or at least the 6 non-frozen ones)
4) Sex in outer space. (200000 mile high club?)
5) Still be alive when Betelgeuse explodes. (Most beautiful night sky in earth's history (and almost all of earths prehistory too!))

Although seriously, I probably have a better chance of conceiving #1 while doing #4 than I have of living to see #5 :)

Myturnokgo!

1) Finish my comic book
2) Be of service to the world
3) Marriage and kids (optional: the kids being conceived within the Earth's core, amidst a rhinoceros stampede, or front row center during Stravinsky's Rite of Spring)
4) Understand QED
5) Meet aliens

Also, I wanna die as an old man in an extremely violent way. "Grandpa died of cancer" is a wasted opportunity for a good story. I prefer: "Grampa was bludgeoned off a space elevator, from which he fell and landed on a helicopter ... which was flying over a sea of sharks."

QED, Quod erat demonstrandum. Literally means "which was to be demonstrated". The phrase is written in its abbreviated form at the end of a mathematical proof or philosophical argument to signify that the last statement deduced was the one to be demonstrated; the abbreviation thus signals the completion of the proof.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams, contains a famous instance of QED in the aside on the Babel fish: "I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing." "But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED." "Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that" and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic."

As far as meeting aliens go, there is a statistical probability that most alien life forms will be unicellular organisms. As it has already been demonstrated in lab studies that certain bacteria can survive long periods of vacuum, become airborne and lift themselves out of our exosphere, and survive for potentially thousands of years without water, and intense radiation - it is altogether possible that you've actually come into contact with extraterrestrial life forms, should they exist. Put another way, if our own lifeforms can survive in space, theirs can. QED.

QED = Quantum Electrodynamics :-)
The theory that's currently applied in the standard model of physics.
But thanks!

Re aliens: I've read that meteor impacts have occured frequently enough that panspermia could possibly have happened between Earth and Mars multiple times. Panspermia between solar systems doesn't seem likely though.

I want to meet thinking aliens! I want to ask them about their theories of science... or about other aliens, do they have religions? Do they sense using sight and sound? Do they have music? Did they develop a Newtonian approach to understanding physics before a relativistic one? Is intelligent life typically bipedal? Is land life typically quadrapedal? Is sexual reproduction common? If so, is marriage common? Does all life share the same biochemical system: DNA, RNA and amino acids? What are the environmental criteria for supporting non-bacterial life? Do our societies share common features? Our languages?
Anyways, the galaxy has existed for many billions of years longer than our solar system. This means there has been plenty of time for the alien civilization to progress far beyond our current stage. There's got to be a whole troupe of alien dudes out there who have studied other alien civilizations that can answer these questions. They'd probably be happy to tell me, except they're probably too frustratingly wise to interfere with human history or something.

I edited my post because you guys brought up a good point.

I've always wanted to meet aliens, at least cool ones.

We need a "Extraterrestrial Life" thread. That is a very interesting subject which could easily derail this also very interesting thread.

1) Complete a Ph.D at Harvard, Stanford, Oxford or Cambridge.
2) Conduct the Berlin Phil.
3) Get on to the property ladder and develop a portfolio.
4) Be given a personal chair.
5) Tend an expansive and exotic garden.

Quite mundane, but all personal and important to me.

(PS: Does anyone have any experience of Harvard? I need to start thinking of my application!)

Great, now I check whether Betelgeuse has exploded yet every time I look at the stars...

2. release an album.
3. open a tattioo shop.
4. work as a firefighter. (tattoo/freelance stuff in my off days)
5. get a tattoo from nick baxter

2. space in general
3. make a living from music
4. publish the novel (as in, get it in real bookstores)
5. i dunno. fall in movie-perfect love? hahaa. thats downright impossible.
