In this rather amusing video from NYCstreetview, New Yorkers are interrupted from the important daily business of walking around on streets and such and asked what they want to do before they die. The answers range from wild sex to mundane travel to some religious stuff to “I don’t know” (really?) to that fearful please stop talking to me you random person I am pretending you don’t exist look. Most New Yorkers do not want to be asked this question and have their answer uploaded to YouTube, it seems. Nonetheless, mad props to the guy at 4:09. Also, why do so many of us want to skydive?
