Thought experiment about time

Watching a Bill Nye the Science Guy interview, the second time this morning (man I had no idea how brilliant this guy was when he was on TV) and he does a thought experiment about the average human having only 70,000 days on earth.  “It sux”. he said.  It struck me how few days I had left.  I calculate, with my family history of men, that I have ten years left, if I am lucky – 3,650 days, to do something big.  I am currently compiling a list of “BIG THINGS” to do, in my last three thousand days.  The obvious “BIG THING” would be travel, exploring, and seeing the new things I have never seen.  The not so obvious is conveyance – for lack of a better word.  Conveyance will be my thing, learning and sharing – moving big ideas (or small) from one place to another, from my mind to yours, much like Bill Nye and other heros of mine.  I would like to think I could do it on a scale of my heros, but I am realistic.  I simply hope to make it interesting, and motivate me to continue to learn, share, and travel…much of the 3650 days I have left – IF i get them.
