Impossible List

Better than a Bucket List. 

This is my Impossible List. I got the idea from Joel Runyon who created the world’s first Impossible List and defined the difference between it and a regular ‘ole bucket list. Put simply the Impossible List is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other, help others as well as yourself, and implore you to take action. I also followed the examples of Steve Kamb and Thomas Frank. This is mine, which is always changing.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
