Still More Bucket List Ideas

Living to Do List
"Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all."- Helen Keller
I had this bumper sticker in my room when I was younger and couldn't imagine how I would make it true for myself. I felt stuck and scared to try new things; since then, I've tried quite a few things that were on my own personal "Bucket List", but there are quite a few items still on the list. 
I believe that not every goal has to be large- sometimes having smaller goals is ok, too- here's a list of things that I haven't done that I hope to do someday.
1. I want to attend an NBA basketball game. I am not picky- it doesn't have to be a playoff game, but it should be a team I like playing against the LA Lakers and kicking their asses. Unlike Jack Nicholson and company, I hate the Lakers.
2. I've never participated in a fun-run and have always wanted to. I heard about a run in Milwaukee that involves stopping every kilometer for a beer, which would be nice, but that's probably not necessary- I'd settle for a beer at the halfway point. 
3. I don't have a very good understanding of Physics at all- before I die, I would really like to understand a little bit more about both Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and why there are Eleven Dimensions in String Theory.
4.  I want to learn how to Photoshop my body and face enough to make me look thinner and younger so that I will have a nicer Facebook profile.  Facebook, after all, is the center of my life. 
5.  I've never been in a Book Club, a Movie Club, or a Wine Club and think that joining any of them would greatly enhance the quality of my life, as long as I could choose the books, movies, and types of wine without greatly offending the other members of the not-yet-existing clubs.  
6. According to the latest study, I need to exercise an hour a day five times a week to maintain my weight for my age. I'd like to settle for exercising half that much by forgoing candy on a semi-regular basis. 
7. My culinary skills are still somewhat lacking- I need to learn ten more kick-ass recipes for the summer.
8.  I definitely want to eat more foods from around the world. So far, I've tried Ethiopian, French, Italian, Thai, Korean, Indian, and some weird Pork BBQ in Malaysia that I'm not quite certain I enjoyed.
