200 things to do

Once in a while there is some extremely stupid thing that goes around many blogs on the web. This time it is a list of 200 things to do. You put this list in your blog and you mark the things you did with bold. Then you get surprised how many things you’ve actually did already. Anyway, the examples are here, here, here, here, and here.
