100 Things To Do And Then You Can Die


Dave Freeman, the co-author of "100 Things to Do Before You Die," a travel guide that recounts odd adventures died after hitting his head in a fall at his home. He was 47.

The book's recommendations ranged from the obvious - attending the Academy Awards and running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain - to the more obscure - taking a voodoo pilgrimage in Haiti, "land diving" on the Island of Vanuatu, which Freeman once called "the original bungee jumping" ,chasing the dragon and having midget sex.

On Sept. 11, 2001, Freeman watched the second plane hit the World Trade Center from his apartment just blocks away. He moved back to Southern California to be closer to his family and to feel more safe.

He was currently working on the book "100 safety tips for around the home" he had not reached falling and hitting your head yet. It will be released as a tribute but renamed "83 safety tips for around the home."

Hate to lol at a guy's death, but what an ironic way to go

That's a reminder to be more attentive to your bucket list.
