If you are unfamiliar with Omegle, it is a chat room that picks someone at random, who you are then able to chat with. Normally, there are between 29,000 to 42,000 actively using the site at one time. In “The Buried Life” style, I have already asked over three dozen strangers on the street the #1 item they want to cross off their bucket lists, as well as my readers, so I thought it might be fun to do the same on Omegle.
Of course, my question was met with a lot of “This user has disconnected” — I think it is a lot easier to reject someone over the Internet than face to face — as well as mocking or crude responses. Yet I also noticed a lot of patterns among the more serious responses. It always amazes me how we humans often seek similar elements in our lives. But I’ll let you guys come up with your own conclusions. Without further ado, here is a random sample of responses when 30 people on Omegle were asked, “What is the #1 item you want to cross off your bucket list?”:
1). To travel around the world! With my backpack and my camera.
2). Hmm, just to live life and not care what anyone thinks!
3). Humm, I don’t know. You tell me.
4). To shave my head maybe. I’m a girl. [How come?] Hair sucks to be honest.
5). To drive a stock car.
6). There’s so many things.
7). There’s not just one thing.
7). Dafaq is a bucket list?
8). To meat the girl I have bin looking for. [I normally edit for grammar, but I just had to maintain the spelling for this one!]
9). What would you like my answer to be? Sex? Drugs? Marriage? Porno?
10). Honestly, as weird as it sounds, I want a really successful relationship with a beautiful, smart woman.
11). Umm, I would probably go in the forest somewhere in solitude.
13). Probably skydiving.
14). To travel the world. Lol.
15). To be fearless and not care about being the people pleaser that I am.
16). To go to 15 countries. Minimum. [Awesome. Any in particular?] Trip to England, France, and Belgium is booked. Still want to go to Spain and Cuba.
17). Umm, jump out of a moving car.
20). Uh, possibly travelling around the world or something like that.
21). To go to Rio.
24). I have so many. I’d like to get to know the snow. Go to London. And Australia. And Ireland. [Oh, have you never seen snow before?] Sadly no.
25). To have a threesome. [Lol.] Lol.
26). To scuba dive in the clear blue ocean.
27). Okay, well if you’re a girl then I have an answer, but it’s pretty awkward if you’re a guy. [Haha, I swear I’m a girl :]] Alright, well then hands down it will be to fall in love.
28). To get rich, lol.
29). Being with the love of my life. This was before she cheated on me. [Oh gosh, I’m so sorry, that’s awful.] You have no idea.
30). What is a bucket list?
Hope you all enjoyed the list! What do you guys think? And what is the #1 item you want to cross off your bucket list?
