Popular Mechanics Expands Bucket List with 55 Things to Do Before the End of the World

Popular Mechanics Expands Bucket List with 55 Things to do Before the End of the World The concept of a bucket list is an interesting one. The idea is to come up with a bunch of things that you'd like to do before you "kick the bucket." If you're like me, that list is always in motion, with new things being added and subtracted all the time. In my case, I'll probably never finish the list completely, but it will certainly be a lot of fun trying. With that in mind, Popular Mechanics is offering us some new things to include on such a list, posting 55 things to do before the end of the world. The author notes that the world isn't probably going to end all that soon, but these are some things you might want to do "just in case."
Some of the items on the list are big adventures, like catching a marlin from a kayak, hike Antelope Canyon or enter a desert race. Others are more practical, like buy yourself a good set of screwdrivers or build yourself a work bench. Some, are just downright silly, like shave your head or shoot pumpkins with arrows. All of them are experiences to be savored and shared however, bringing a splash of color – and sometimes the entire spectrum – to your life.
We've of course seen similar lists from other outlets in the past, but what separates this one from the others is the diversity of things you'll find on the list. They range from things as serious as donating a kidney to as whimsical as eating at a specific barbecue joint in Tennessee. There are also things on the list that anyone can accomplish too, with most of the items being rather simple and straight forward, even if they might require you to step outside your comfort zone a bit.
Taking a cursory glance at these things to do before the end of the world, I'd say I'm about halfway or so through the list. That's not too bad of course, but it does leave me with some work to do. I'd better get cracking.
