I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Twitter is awesome. I’ve got friends there to keep me company in just about every time zone in the world, hear breaking news and I get ideas of stuff to write about.
Like right now. I was followed on Twitter recently by someone who runs a Tumblr called “Nerd Bucket List.” I took a minute to go check it out and sure enough, it’s exactly what it sounds like. The blogger is trying to get people to make up their own nerd bucket lists. If you are unfamiliar with what a “bucket list” is, I guess you missed the Rob Reiner comedy starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman wherein “two terminally ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die.” Cheery huh?
I’ve hopefully got a long life ahead of me and can think of tons of crazy nerd stuff I’d still like to do. So now, without further ado, I present to you a portion of my Nerd Bucket List in this week's Hey, That's My Cape! at Newsarama.
