Things You Should Do Before You Turn 50

When you're young you think we have all the time in the world to get things done, but age certainly creeps up fast and soon you’re approaching 50 and a lot of things you wish you did just didn’t happen. Well, a new British survey, which could easily translate here, asked folks what things everyone should do before they turn the big 5-0 and some of the answers may surprise you.

Some of the things on the "50 Tings To Do Before 50 list are pretty expected, like buy a house, get married, have kids, fall in love, etc., but some are a bit wilder. For example, sleeping under the stars made the list, as did go skinny dipping, pick a random fight at the airport, ride an elephant and get a tattoo.

As for how people feel once they turn 50, the survey finds that less than 40% of people have accomplished all their life goals by the milestone birthday. But it’s not like their life is over. In fact, 39% of people believe that life actually begins at 50.
