In Reuters today:

It felt a bit like tempting fate but American advertising executive Dave Freeman who in 1999, co-authored a classic non-fiction title with Neil Teplica called 100 Things to Do Before You Die, has died suddenly at the age of 47.

Freeman passed away after hitting his head in a fall in his Californian home. His family said that he had only managed to complete about half of the list of his to-do recommended journeys to the 'coolest places on earth'. Reuters reports today, that his accidental death has sparked aggressive bucket wish lists online especially amongst bloggers. A bucket list means completing a number of things you may have always wanted to indulge in, while still alive. Freeman's concept had also hit the big screen this year in the film called The Bucket List, when Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman had played 2 terminally ill men fulfilling a wish-list.

The writers' idea had also sparked off popular movie, food, music and books wish-lists. For the rest of the story, read HERE.
