    47! :eeek:

    Oh, the irony. He only did about half of the hundred things, so it sounds like he got short changed for sure.

    I better, at least, buy the book to make a stab at a few of them. :idea:

    :duh:

    Perhaps he was making a statement. Never put off until tomorrow...

    I actually have read that book, some of the things I can't actually ever see myself doing, some I hope to experience in my lifetime.

    It's sad he had to die before he could do as many of them as possible.

    I thought he did do as many of them as possible before he died. ;)

    I just thought, he could have written a shorter book (50 things to do before you die), and had time to do more things?

    A little tasteless, I know.
