    you'll need to kill bill gates for that one pal
    i'm sure he'll get arrested and go to prison for breaking antitrust laws. But he will probaably get out within a few weeks due to his high-paid lawyers. So i need to get close to him and then steal all of his money within those few weeks. Ie make him sign bad deals and then take over his company

    Ooooh, jealous! I wanted to see it when I was in Switzerland, but time and money wouldn't allow it (Zermatt is not the easiest place to get to by train).

    I would like to

    1. Go UP the Eiffel Tower and not just stand at the bottom take photos and go "ooh, ahh"

    2. The Mona Lisa, being over 18 I wasn't allowed in for free and I wasn't going to queue for a ticket. Apparently really small, really dirty quite sad

    3.India, Thailand etc. I want to go East. I love curry and elephants. I believe this is enough.

    4.My family, not the ones I already have but the ones I WILL have. My first baby is going to be adopted and I think that and having one of my own will be possibly the best thing out of all of these.

    5.The Pyramids, Cliche I know...but how in the hell did they do it?

    6.Land's End & John O'Groats. I have said the ends of the earth now the ends of my country

    7.A purple cat (ok running out of ideas)

    8.The ring....

    9. The Hellfire Club..that would be well cool

    and number 10....

    I guess the inside of a volcano would be pretty cool as well

    yeh it is a shame. you don't even get the effect of the enigmatic smile properly cos the lighting isn't that great because its behind glass.

    I've seen the northern lights....they're absolutely wonderful...gobsmackingly beautiful and fascinating to watch.

    Compared to the eiffel tower there's only one I would pay another £1000 to go to see again (and it doesn't look like a pylon)
