The Un-Resolution List 2013
Things I will never do, because I do not want to:
1. Swim in or travel to the Amazon.
There are too many lifeforms that can get into and up a human being. Armchair travel suffices and I leave the experience to travel writers and National Geographic journalists.
2. Eat Fugu.
Puffer fish are droll; the fish that turns into a balloon when stressed and paralyzes you if you did not get the hint.
3. Go bungee jumping.
It is not like flying. It is a high speed spine adjustment.
4. Eat anything endangered.
That is how most species became endangered to begin with.
5. Go unexplored cave spelunking.
Toxic guano fumes, spores and methane gas. Also, I watched "The Descent". Creepy white things without eyes are creepy, despite natural selection and the wonders of evolution.
6. Take a wilderness survival course.
I do not believe in reenacting the past without costumes until I have to.
7. Always write a list of 10.
Who came up with that rule?
