My 'Impossible List'

I was catching up on some reading and stumbled across This Page. I really like the idea of the impossible list as it provides a list of ideal milestones in life. I’m putting it up here not to promote it but just to make it public. If it’s all hidden away in my mind I will either forget it or ignore it. I also want to keep a record of these things happening so I will try associate them with a post if/when they happen. Joel Runyon, the guy who started the idea, had some pretty cool ones on his list which I may have ‘borrowed’ for my list, you should definitely check out his website.
