Ultimate Bucket List

  1. Have one billion babies.
  2. Travel 5 billion light years in every direction starting from Earth. But if you have seen one galaxy, you've seen 'em all.
  3. Become a cheetah, an elephant, and a snake in my reincarnations ... oops, that will require me to die first. But anyway.
  4. Touch the sun and burn my fingers ... oops, it's HOT!

  7. Live to be one billion years old.
