GQ magazine: "50 Things a Man Does Not Have to Do Before He Dies"

I love a bucket list as much as the next person.

But I love a 'don't-do-this' list even better.

Kinda takes the pressure off.

This list is for men. It comes from US GQ magazine. I like it a lot. Read on [what would you add to the list?]:

Normally, this kind of thing should be written by someone who has actually had sex on an airplane. But I have never had sex on an airplane, and I have come to the realization that I'm going to be okay. If I find out I have a rare blood disorder that will kill me in four days, I'm not going to sit around wishing I'd bent some woman over the sink 30,000 feet above Halifax. Well, not for more than like five seconds, anyway. Sex in public places is fun. (Like on trains.) But being expected to have sex on a commercial jetliner at some point in your life kind of takes the fun out of it. You're just coaxing your girlfriend into the lavatory so you don't feel like a loser the next time someone asks you if you're in the Mile High Club. It's one of many stupid things we weakly accept as a metric of manhood. It's uncomfortable enough to even sit on an airplane, let alone grapple with complex anatomical physics near a vacuum-flush toilet.—Devin Friedman.

18. HAVE A KID. 
Kids will change your life. But what if you don't want your life changed? What if you like having the freedom to, say, jet to South Beach for the weekend? Which would be great, of course, but it would mean you'd have to skip that dinner party and pass on the chance to spend the evening with four other parent-age couples as they go on and on and on about nannies, and school districts, and poopie!, and how last night one father slept only two hours (seriously, dude, two hours!) because little Max had the worst ear infection. Is it selfish not to bring another child into the world, care for him, and give him a quality life? Maybe. But there are plenty of charitable things you can do with your time. And I imagine Marc Jacobs will get by without selling one more $200 cashmere toddler sweater.—Reid Bixler
