Not that it is a goal, but my wife is probably 2 promotions away from me being a house hubby. We’ve long established that she is the bread winner and I’m the domestic. I’m fine with that.

Jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

Back in my adrenaline junkie days after road racing and bungee jumping skydiving was obviously next. I talked to two jump schools and was ready. Then... 1st school, student got caught in a tree just missing power lines. 2nd school, student's chute caught got in the tail wheel and had to land the student dragging in the grass. Both local headlines.

I took that as a sign. indecision

That's not hard to do.

If my math is right, that's 1.3 seconds of sustained fire . . . for $200.  Totally worth it.

1. Drive a top fuel car (highly unlikely but doable with mucho bucks)

2. Go to the moon - and return (the definition of no way but at least I could get a part of my ashes in earth orbit)

Getting a ride in a P-51 isn't hard either.  The Collings Foundation (https://www.collingsfoundation.org) has a 2-seater that they take on tours around the US and you can get a ride in it for about $500.  They have a B-17 and B-24 on the tour too.

Fly jets again. Do a V6 conversion on a second-gen MR2. Own a 951 or a 1st-gen RX-7. Take a HPDE course. Figure out WTF is making that clunking noise in the rear VMaxx Classic shocks on the Miata.

Fly a B-17.

I'll use this as an excuse to tell about meeting a WWII vet that had been a B17 pilot. It was 2006; he had been discharged in 1946 after 37 missions. He went through three airplanes, but told me he, "never lost a man!"

He told me about going out to the Asheville, NC airport to look at a B17 that was touring the country the year before. He was standing next to the cockpit, talking to the pilot as they were wrapping up their day, when the pilot said to him, "Okay, climb in." 

He replied that he had too many hours in one of them to pay $50 for a ride. The pilot replied that they needed to warm up the engines anyhow, put him in the copilot's seat, and off they went. 

The pilot took off, and at a thousand feet he pulled his hands and feet off the controls, and said, "Well, there you go!" and wouldn't take them back.

After protesting how crazy that was after 60 years, he realized that the pilot meant it and took over. He said that the moment he took control of the plane, it all came back to him in an instant. He could have done anything with the plane. 

My wish: to meet this man again. Unfortunately, it was 12 years ago, I don't remember his name, I don't live there anymore, and I don't know if he's still alive. Not going to happen. 

I'll always remember him, though.

I'm fairly close. Turns out the key is being so screwed that simple E36 M3 doesnt even matter. I have 250$ to my name right now, I live in florida, and none of my cars have working ac, as the blower motor in the nissan let the magic smoke out this morning. 

 

berkeley it. I played video games. I went to the store and got some dinner stuff. I'll fix the nissan tomorrow. I have a plan, and its gonna work. No need to sweat it

Learn aerobatics.

Those that can't  fly want to fly. Those of us who fly, want to do it upside-down.

You can learn aerobatics in a simulator. You didn't say fly aerobatics in a real plane cheeky

Do what my navigator did, keep an eye out for a used rally car with one foot in the grave being sold for cheap, fix up some of the really important stuff to help it survive, then borrow safety equipment from all your friends and limp it through a few events. It helps if you get sponsorship from a sex shop laugh
