When you're young you think we have all the time in the world to get things done, but age certainly creeps up fast and soon you’re approaching 50 and a lot of things you wish you did just didn’t happen. Well, a new British survey, which could easily translate here, asked folks what things everyone should do before they turn the big 5-0 and some of the answers may surprise you.
Some of the things on the "50 Things To Do Before 50" list are pretty expected, like buy a house, get married, have kids, fall in love, etc., but some are a bit wilder. For example, sleeping under the stars made the list, as did go skinny dipping, pick a random fight at the airport, ride an elephant and get a tattoo.
As for how people feel once they turn 50, the survey finds that less than 40% of people have accomplished all their life goals by the milestone birthday. But it’s not like their life is over. In fact, 39% of people believe that life actually begins at 50.
