I don't care how exciting it sounds or how cool it looks?

There are just somethings I will never do before my time comes to an end.

Some people's "bucket lists" look like a list of ways to die quicker.

I have no interest in death defying stunts before I perish. What's the point?

I'm trying to survive. So my anti-bucket list is long and proud.

What ever happened to just getting on roller coasters or living a good life?

Why is everybody so extra now?


Redditor Couch_Licker wanted to hear about all the things people are willing to NOT do before leaving this Earth.

They asked:

"What is on your anti-bucket list of things you NEVER want to do in your lifetime?"

Tattoos, sky diving, snake wrangling, safari... no thank you to ALL of the above. Travel. I just want to travel. To fancy places with hotels. You can keep the jungle.

Faithful

"Cheat on my wife." ~ cov3rtOps

Kill On Sight...

"Running into a massive spider in Australia." ~ ghostiesontoasties

"As an Australian, it depends on the spider. The massive ones are usually huntsmen and they're okay. It's the small, colourful ones you want to watch for - at least three are in my area that are Kill On Sight if they ever get inside." ~ Ametalia

"As someone in Australia, I try my hardest and sometimes I fail unfortunately. But I haven't seen the worst and pray I never do." ~ UpOxygen

Too Gross

"Experience a degloving injury. Usually stuck in machinery. It’s why things like lathes warn against loose clothing." ~ Crott117

"When I worked at a vets, unbeknown to a driver, a cat was under the bonnet of their car. Ignition on, screams and a horrified person and messed up cat. Immediate PTS upon arrival. I can do gore but degloving injuries are beyond messed up." ~ IwantedBeatsteak

No Tony!

"Have children." ~ WrestlingWoman

"Came here to say that. When I say 'I don't want to have kids,' people assume I am ambivalent about that matter. No, Tony, I don't want to have them as much as I don't want to cut off my own leg with a butter knife, thank you." ~ CarolynEarle

Sober

"Hard drugs. I do not need meth and heroin in my life." ~ SconiGrower

Well at least others have some good sense as well. The drug avoidance should be a #1 for all.

Bad Air

"Hot air balloons. Never." ~ K-Kraft

No Pushing

"Giving a non C-section birth." ~ cellsnek

I've been told many times by women who have experienced both that no sane woman would choose to have a baby by c-section. However, if you need one, that's another story and that's why the procedure exists in the first place." ~ notthesedays

Deep Below

"Go into an underwater cave. Miss me with that crap!" ~ 4Me2knowDammit

"The most dangerous water way in UK. Literally a fast wide river that turns 90 degrees so it's a few feet wide and 150 deep. Scary. The word is the survival rate for any animal who goes in is zero." ~ bakerboyuk

Falling!!

"See skydiving was something I have always wanted to do. However, today I found my self scrolling through about 10 videos of parachutes failing and now it is one of my greatest fears." ~ rocjustbus1984

"I stayed on a farm in Texas for a while that was right next to a skydiving place. It was funny to hear the people screaming on their way down. Until the day I heard screaming that sounded very different than the usual, and I looked up to see a guy tangled in the lines of a half-deployed chute."

"I watched long enough to realize it wasn't going to open any more than it already was, and ran inside and blasted music and tried to pretend I hadn't just seen that. There was no skydiving nearby again until after I left, at least several months. I think the guy lived but his back was broken." ~ t_portch

Live Fully

Happy Star Wars Characters GIF by LEGO Giphy

"Have a job that consumes my life and defines my identity. Life's too short for that nonsense." ~ smooth_grooves

I just want to live, without major injury. Why do things to hinder that? Be careful out there.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
