Good morning Texas!

My Bucket List for 2019:

1. Skydiving
2. Bungee jumping
3. Get my heart rate to reach 200 beats per minute while exercising on my personal treadmill

Welcome to Texas, my youngest son. :)

Your Dad,
Verner Von Richthofen

Sheesh, Dad! Chill! You need to avoid as many unnecessary risks as possible. Stuff comes out of left field plenty without going looking for it. It reminds us of the NS Category Bus Surprisal Index. That will get you to 200 bpm but quick! And, you did not have to do a thing.

Our Bucket List for 2019 is to sleep more. And we are not sure that is really a "Bucket List" item, more of a To Do list item.

What is on your To Do in 2019 List, Texans?

Do you have a death wish Sir?

Verner, I don't think anyone's heart can beat that fast. I think you're gonna give yourself a heart attack if you try to do it. And if you succeed you'll definitely have a heart attack.

More sleep sounds good Big Tex! I'd agree that normally it's not a Bucket List but in Verner's case it might qualify as one.

My To Do in 2019 List

1. Pass all my exams with flying colors.
2. Pass all the subjects I'm taking this year and don't have to repeat any subjects.
3. Find more food and drink recipes to try cooking and making.
4. Draw more fan art of Arya Stark and her direwolf Nymeria, Bran Stark, Jon Snow:- Make more Game of Thrones fanart of my favorite characters. <3

Queen Falcona Stark

Sorry it's a little late, but... we WON THE SUGAR BOWL!!!!!!!! Against a "mighty" SEC team. Georgia's players should have been focusing on the game not posting about how they should be in the CFP.

2019 Bucket List:
1. Wake up alive every morning.
2. Bring my girlfriend here to stay.
3. Find a way to keep most of my employees employed.
4. Attend an urban combat shotgun class.
5. See the year through with no more freedoms lost to Democrats, liberals, socialists, collectivists, communists, etc. (They're all the same when you sit down and analyze them.)

Great Scott! You're quite a daredevil Verner. #1 is extremely dangerous. #2 sounds dangerous too. As for #3, I agree with Falcona. No one's heart can beat that fast and you'll have a heart attack. Are you trying to get yourself killed? If that happens, your sons will become orphans and your wife will become a widow. I'm sure you're aware of that and don't want that to happen, right?

3. Spend more time with my girlfriend.

5. Improve my spoken and written English.
6. Learn a new language.
7. Write original fiction/science fiction stories instead of fanfiction stories.
8. Try to find a publisher for what I write in #7 above.

That was pretty heartbreaking for Chi-Town. That was quite a season for them. And, probably, the last season with Chicago for that poor Punter.

Apparently, buses surprise our citizens quite frequently, but not nearly as frequently as they do those oil tycoons like JR! Your peeps are relatively safe from buses Emmett:
Bus Surprisal Index for Texas Top Three + Emmett

That's it! I'm done lurking in here. I was too shy to introduce myself but now that I need to speak up, I might as well introduce myself.

Hiya everyone!

My name is Leia and Verner is my beloved husband. I've been married to him for 15 years. He's the greatest husband in the whole world and a good but too lenient father to our three sons. Unfortunately, he thinks he's invincible and he's already Super-Fit but still exercises strenously and these 2 things makes me worried and annoyed with him.

Verner is the greatest husband in the whole world because after we got married, he paid the fees for my undergraduate university education. I still remember what he told me. I wrote it down on a piece of paper and stuck it to our fridge years ago: (1) He didn't want to be married to a mere housewife and (2) women can and should be empowered to become successful too. When I became pregnant with our sons while in university and wanted to give up, he encouraged me to continue studying until I graduated. Then I decided I wanted to go to medical school to be a doctor and he paid for my medical studies too. My husband's obsession to become Super-Fit is the reason why I wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to be able to save him if anything happens to him. That said, I'm successful today because of him. That's one of the reasons why I love him so much and can't lose him.

My parents are Star Wars fans and named me after Princess Leia Organa Solo. They've passed the Star Wars fan(aticism) down to me and I spreaded it to my husband and our sons. Verner was only a Trekkie until he married me. I was only a Star Wars fan until I married him. Now we're both Star Wars and Star Trek fans and our sons are Star Wars and Star Trek Fans too.

You'll do none of the items on your list, my lord. You know how much I love you. I need you and I don't want to lose you. Our sons need you too.

Fort Verden wrote:

I forbade you to even attempt it my lord. I'll have my brothers Ben and Luke confiscate your treadmill if you do that.

Good advice Big Tex but my husband thinks he's invincible. :(

Edge Calibur wrote:As for #3, I agree with Falcona. No one's heart can beat that fast and you'll have a heart attack.

Verner's heart can beat extremely fast during strenuous exercises. He's a Super-Fit Endurance Athlete and because he's been running since his uncle signed him up for his first marathon run when he was 11 years old, I'd even call him an Elite. Unfortunately, there are downsides to him being a Super-Fit Elite Endurance Athlete. (1) He can't get any fitter. (2) He has acquired Athletic Heart Syndrome, also known as Athlete's Heart. His heart is enlarged and he has a very low resting heart rate. When he's asleep his heart rate is only 40 bpm and when he's awake and relaxed, it's 56 bpm. Last November, he finally agreed to have an Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator implanted in his chest to pace and increase his sleeping and resting heart rate to 60 bpm. Now I'm reassured that my beloved husband won't die in his sleep and I don't need to wake up in the middle of the night to check that he's still alive. He thinks he's invincible but this is one of the reasons why he's not invincible and why I'm worried and annoyed with him. :(

To Do in 2019 List

Hey I'm a student too. I'll just borrow 1 and 2 from Emmett and Falcona. Good luck to all students in this region!

1. Pass all my exams with flying colors.
2. Pass all the subjects I'm taking this year and don't have to repeat any subjects.
3. Win medals in swimming competitions.
4. Earn my black belt in Wushu.
5. Earn my black belt in Taekwondo.
6. Help my mom and dad a lot more.

Edge Calibur wrote:BTW, why do you call Verner your lord?

Three reasons:

1. Verner is the greatest husband in the whole world and I love him very much. That's why I call him my lord. :)

2. Verner is severely allergic to peanuts and all seafood and our three sons inherited his allergies. Therefore we had to host our family gatherings to avoid severe allergic reactions that required Epi-Pen injections and trips to the hospital. We host several annual family gatherings for our family: Christmas, New Year, Halloween and randomly throughout the year whenever we feel like hosting a family gathering. During these family gatherings we made cosplay mandatory and live action roleplay optional. Verner has been cosplaying as Thranduil for the last few years. I always cosplay as Vaylin, a Sith Lady and so I call my husband my lord because I can't call him my king. I'm not an elf therefore he's not my king. :P

3. A few years ago, we bought my Dad the game "Star Wars: The Old Republic" as a Christmas present. When he was done with it we tried it out too. My parents are Star Wars fan(atic)s. My Dad liked the character Valkorion so much, he started cosplaying as Valkorion in our family gatherings. As a result, my Mom cosplayed as Valkorion's wife Senya Tirall, my two older brothers Ben and Luke cosplayed as Valkorion's sons Arcann and Thexan and I cosplayed as Valkorion's daughter Vaylin. Poor Verner, that makes him the Outlander but that means he gets to keep his own name. And I think the Outlander became the Eternal Emperor so that's one more reason to call him my lord. :)

I have always called it a “Bucket List” but you are correct, it is more of a To Do list. I have scrapped my “Bucket List”.

Cajun Winterfell wrote: Do you have a death wish Sir?

NO!

Cajun Winterfell wrote: Verner, I don't think anyone's heart can beat that fast.

My heart rate frequently reached 180 bpm while I am exercising. 200 bpm is merely 20 bpm more than that. I believe my heart can probably beat that fast. However, I will no longer attempt to achieve a heart rate of 200 bpm.

No, I am not a daredevil:

Here's hoping Clemson holds on....

As an Aggie fan, I guess I'm pullin for Bama (SEC!) But I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Clemson win.
Also, if we're doing lists for 2019, looks like most of mine have been posted, but I've got writing more, being better informed about issues, increasing my vocabulary, following a better sleep schedule, and exercising more, among others. It's a long list, but I'm trying to just hit 3 things a day from it.
Anyhow, getting around to why I came here, how is Texas doing? Just wanted to check in, and also say howdy from Spiritus!

To Do in 2019 List

1. Learn Java programming
2. Learn C++ programming
3. Create a few games

Looking at the 2019 Schedule, Bama has a date in a rousing Kyle Field against what will probably be a hyped up Aggies squad in October. Write it down now, I'm taking the Aggies over Bama in that one ( Gig em Aggies would be proud!)

That’s it Verner! I’ll definitely have my brothers Ben and Luke confiscate your treadmill now. We’ll still go on our daily 1 mile run as a family every morning. You can remain fit and healthy and burn your excess energy and fat with the 1 mile run but you must no longer try to get high by running on the treadmill for a long time every day!

Fort Verden wrote: My heart belongs to you

I love you and that heart of yours that keeps you alive. So if your heart truly belongs to me, I’d like to see whether it can be fixed. You must agree to try what we’ve been discussing. You’ll stop all high intensity endurance exercises for at least 6 months. Your Athlete’s Heart might be able to fix itself during that time. Do this for me. Please? I love you.
