Thrill seeker's bucket list: 50 experiences to try before you die The tastiest snacks always come in see-through wrappers. Always wear a helmet. That way no one can see you cry. Why climb when you can fly? What goes up must come down. Revenge of the hamburger. This business really needs to be streamlined. Pant-soiling never came so cheap. Just another 253 kilometers to go. High tea, anyone? Up here, proposing suddenly doesn't seem so scary. Just think of it as a roller coaster -- keep your arms and legs inside at all times. Note the lack of women. So many naked people, so little beach. Perhaps the best way to see a Disney fantasy. Amazing how much fun you can have with a ball and some bounce. Not so much rock, but a whole lotta roll. Three wheels, half a horsepower, three crazy adventurers. Even if you make it, there's no guarantee your car will. When water goes bad. Vertigo, anyone? Cage of Death (Australia) Zapcat powerboating (UK) Everest skydive (Nepal) World's steepest coaster (Japan) Running of the Bulls (Spain) Office Chair Race (Germany) Dine in the sky (global) 1.

» Best Procrastination Tip Ever Post written by Leo Babauta. Your first thought as you look at this article will be, “I’ll read this later.” But don’t. It’ll take you two minutes. I’ve written the book on ending procrastination, but I’ve since come up with a very simple technique for beating everyone’s favorite nemesis. Try it now: Identify the most important thing you have to do today. Clear away distractions. Sit there, and focus on getting started. Pay attention to your mind, as it starts to have urges to switch to another task. But don’t move. Notice also your mind trying to justify not doing the task. Now just take one small action to get started. Get started, and the rest will flow.

Johnny Holland | It's all about interaction Chile’s Magic Mountain Magic Mountain Lodge in Huilo Huilo, Chile. One look at the Magic Mountain Lodge in Huilo Huilo, Chile, and the first thing that jumps to mind is the Lord of the Rings. This volcano-shaped hotel really looks like something Tolkien would have dreamed up – from the conical walls built out of local wood and stone, to the trees that threaten to engulf the building, and the waterfall that shoots out of the summit and cascades down the sides. And when I read this next tidbit, I figured out what put’s the “magic” in Magic Mountain – the lodge has hot tubs made out of ancient, hollowed-out tree trunks sitting on decks overlooking the forest. And not just any forest either, because the lodge is set in the middle of a 100, 000 hectare nature reserve in the Patagonian Andes. Magic Mountain is actually just one of several accommodations that are located in the reserve – among the others is Baobab, which looks something like an upside-down ice cream cone made out of wood, and equally cool (see below).
