WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE?

Thousands of people were asked that question in various places all over the world (see the Project here), and in this piece, I attempt to collect together a good number of them - taking care to not echo most duplicates, but again, preserve an idea of what dreams most people had. Definitely, there could be bias in the chocies I made (I can't say I was objectively random), but I tried to be fair to all sorts of perspectives - including the ones that admitted to being clueless!

Okay, personally, were I to answer this question, my answer would already be somewhere on line...

What about you? Which of these responses resonates the most with you? Do you think it worth to ask this question, and try answering it?
