Stealf (124) (@stealf) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

Fuck driving the speed limit, everything else is good though.

PRAKASH (236) (@lesterxp) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

@leahroehl, 80. Always inquire who is this that does all that?To whom do these thoughts and actions occur? :)

lax from botswana (0) (@lorenzo2012) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

jumping of a bridge is crazy!!!!!, i rather be alive than die

Clare (88) (@mowgli1) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

this is probably a no-brainer…
81. meditate

PRAKASH (236) (@lesterxp) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

@mowgli1, what is meditation?

Anonymous (2,833) (@) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

@lorenzo2012, jumped off a bridge 1 week ago. Screamed so loud my throat hurt for a day!

This was great. Some seemed pretty fucking specific, though.


Alicia Lee (146) (@aliwine) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

I think even without reading this I would have done almost everything on this list before dying- no bridge jumping for me though. I am fair too afraid of heights, instead I will replace with with having slid down a waterfall. Which lead to getting cuts all over my butt.

@aliwine, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1hRziJOWZ8

Skip to 4:40 – It was exhilirating.

Not to crazy, but done this a few times too:

Sometimes you just gotta jump. :)

Kevin (188) (@bigred) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

Wow, fucking love the list!

Kevin (188) (@bigred) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

@aliwine, thats what makes it soo funnn thoughhh!
i hate hights. But loveeee scaring the shit out of myself with ’em! :P

Alicia Lee (146) (@aliwine) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

@ijesuschrist, I would have done much more than scream my voice hoarse in that situation! All the power to you man!

@bigred, Bum cuts aren’t fun


Ehh some of these suck…

Salman (0) (@salman) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

Crazy list but I loved it :-)

Anonymous (2,654) (@) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

That sucked.

41. Unfriend a family member that gives you more stress than love. Seriously? That’s gonna make you feel alive? Being a fucking pussy? Most of this shit is not even interesting enough. Although a few things made my guts tingle. Just a few.

yoinkie (1,498)C (@yoinkie) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

Some of these were cool but for the most part, this list sucked really bad. “make 6 figures in a year”, “start your dream business” “buid a fail proof business”, “become an overnight success” yada yada. Really? Like we arent trying to do that, we would rather sit at dead end jobs but now since this list told me to do so, I better get on it.

“Spend your birthday alone” “spend holidays alone”. Why? Those loner ones dont even make any sense.

And also a lot of these could make you end up dead or hurt. Sorry for the honest opinion, but this list was made by a slightly insane person who doesnt have a good understanding of the real world.

Taylor (1) (@soulsearcher) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

I want to do every one of these things. even growing the damn beard in China.

Michael (30) (@mikey) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

I love this list! Fucking great job.

SumtinProphetic (4,925) (@sumtinprophetic) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

Some of these are so bogus… perhaps the title of the list should be “79 ways to do exactly what I did as I became alive”

Joey (0) (@coldfire) 9 years, 2 months ago ago

I liked the “Kill the internet” One !! Really! it made me less alive since the internet entred my life from everywhere (Home, school, iPhone, 3G iPad .. etc)
