The concept of a bucket list is a cool way to track miniature or major life goals. Once you've checked something off your bucket list, you feel accomplished. But what about the opposite--things you honestly hope you'll never do, or have accepted has passed you by before your time is up?


u/phlux asked:

Whats on your Anti Bucket List, things you know and accept you'll die not having done?

Here were some of the answers.

Definitely Uncommon

Giphy

Throwing a fragmentation grenade.

I know I could do it, but too often I've thrown things somewhere and accidentally hit something not supposed to hit. I'd have too much fear that I'd just yeet that thing 3m in front of me instead of far away.

realultralord

Army here, it doesn't really hit you how easily you'd be turned to paste until after it explodes. So it feels pretty cool.

A Large Obstacle

Flying a plane. I am colorblind thus I cannot get a pilots license. I personally find it ironic since people with my specific brand of color blindness were roped into the Air Force in WW2 because they could distinguish German camouflage from the skies.

Unlacqua

You could definitely still do this with an instructor in the plane.

CTBioWeapons

This is correct. It's called TIF or Trial Instructional Flight*. They take off and land, you get to fly whilst in the air.

Horizons To Broaden

I wanted a stamp on my passport before I turned 30.

...I hope I have a stamp on my passport before I turn 40.

Go to Thailand they will stamp the f*ck out of your passport.

Moose Are So Large And So Dumb

Ride a moose.

But imagine just how majestic you'd look.

I want to ride a bear, this is actually something I want to do

Probably ten years ago someone in Sweden rode a moose like it was a horse. Saddle and everything. When it reached media they forbid him to proceed with the moose riding, and I believe that it is now forbidden to break in a moose here.

Catch Me I'm Falling

Giphy

Skydiving, not for me, no no, nu-huh.

satakentia

I went once. Once. Tandem, instructor was about a foot shorter than me. They land, you hold your knees up. I took the entire landing on one leg and limped for two weeks.

For anyone curious, you only feel like your falling the first few seconds. About the same as a rollercoaster drop. Relativity. The ground is so far away theres nothing to really visually attune you.

It's Just Not Time

I'll never leave the solar system on a multi-generational colony ship headed for another star. There's just no way, bro.

Brother_Wayne_Kramer

Even just getting into space. Sure, in my lifetime it's probably achievable, but I'm not selling everything for the experience.

shaftautopump

I'm 45. As a kid I was 100% certain there'd be a colony on Mars by now and I'd go. The colony still has time, but I sure ain't going with a family.

I'll never leave earth. But I guess I'll always have No Man's Sky.

It's Only A Thought For Now

Crack. I'm sure it's great. Anything that great is always compared to crack, so I'm sure crack is amazing. The best foods "taste like crack," the best video games are "as addictive as crack."

GhostalMedia

My personal rule is that if I live to 80 or get a terminal disease before then, I'll try hard drugs, but if/until that happens, I'm staying away.

No Big Spiders Ever

I'm an arachnophobe, so both Brazil and Australia are definitely on my f*ckit list.

I'm not scared of being bitten. I have a phobia. I don't want to SEE a spider any larger than a tarantula. If I came across a bird eater or a Huntsman, I'd have a panic attack. I understand it's rare to run in to one, but still, no thanks.

Money Is Exhausting

Giphy

Boy, this list would be huge. But #1 is being crazy rich. You know, soccer players level of richness. Even if I managed to get this amount of money, I feel like living in high society must be so tiring, I don't want to experience this lol.

Freakz0rd

I tell you what, everyone pitch in and give me money and I'll write an extensive paper, and even film a documentary about living in high society so you'll know if it's actually good or not.

spaghettiAstar

I would be fine having a lot of money through hard work, but I have no desire at all to be famous.

People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
