"You've only got one life, so make the most of it," they say. "Swim in a bioluminescent lake, boil an egg with a mobile phone, or have a new species named after you." With a little practice - carefully explained - you may also be able to achieve multiple orgasm, or, for 35,000, clone your pet cat.

Swim in a bioluminescent lake

I've swam in a bioluminecent ocean. Do you think that counts?

I do have to admit, it was one of the most awesome sights I have ever seen

    To get the full list I believe that you have to buy this weeks edition of The New Scientist.

    That sounds like it belongs on a list of things to do WHILE you die...

    "Being turned into a diamond" sounds interesting. I wonder if they have a discount option 'Being turned into a cubic zirconi", for those that are short of cash :)

    Actually, I've heard of tragic women who need to put that on their to-do list...

    cubic zirconi

    Hmmm. What about a plastic paste-on rhinestone? I think I have a quarter in the bottom of my purse...
