'What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?': 15 answers

Six years ago, stuck in a rut and feeling unprepared for adulthood, four friends made a list of the 100 tasks they wanted to accomplish in their lifetimes, then set out to check the items off the list. Since then, their quest to finish the list has been chronicled by the MTV show 'The Buried Life,' and for every item they checked off, the four have helped another person achieve his or her lifelong dream. For their new book, What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?, they asked for submissions from their fans for what the fans wanted to do during their lifetime. Here are 15 of the answers they received.
