Since the last post I’ve been quietly working on a real good version of the bridge builder game for flash. Take a look at the result after the ‘Continue Reading’ link and tell me what you think, (or if you spotted a bug) in the comments.
Last week I watched this very interesting lecture from Randy Pausch about achieving your childhood dreams and those of others. After watching the lecture (which you should if you haven’t done so yet) I thought to myself what would I love to have done in my life… So I made myself a list:
- Fly a MiG-25 to space
What would be better than being in space or flying a jet? Doing both at the same time! There are multiple companies willing to bring you that delight with the Mikoyan-Gurevich 25, which packs 100.1 kN to thrust you right to the edge of space (~25.000 m up). All you have to do now is fork over $31,995. [link]
- (Accidentally) Drive a Caterpillar 797B over a car
The Caterpillar 797B is the biggest truck in the world. Hauling around 623,700 kg with 3550 horsepower is fun. And since a rally with these trucks will unlikely ever happen I’ll settle with driving over a car (accidentally). Check out the video here.
- Be 007
Everybody dreams of being 007! Driving your top of the line Aston Martin to the most luxurious and beautiful locations while saving the world from another villain with lots of tricked out gadgetry.
- Be a Mythbuster for a day
The mythbusters have the best job in the whole world. Finding out all the cool stuf in the name of science. But since they are not to eager to hire anymore people on their team which I completely understand… it ought to be fun for just one day. (Please? )
- Set foot on Mars
Don’t we miss those days of explorers pioneering new land? What about being the first person to set foot on Mars!
- Laugh to death
Obviously this should be the very last thing to do on our list… But is there anyone who could think of a better way to die?
- Do a monster truck rally/destruction derby with some friends
Pretty self explanatory…
- Drag a top fuel dragster
I bet most of your friends won’t top the experience of a nitromethane powered 8000 horsepower rocket that will blast you to 450 km/h in just 200 meters.
- Have some fun with a mini gun
Again this video probably says enough: [link]
