I am going to accomplish the following tasks in the year 2008:
Set a new land-speed record.
Genetically engineer a new breed of dog.
Destroy reality TV.
Become the dictator of a Latin American country.
Eat a whole cow (not necessary the same cow, but every edible cow part; and not necessarily in one sitting).
Defeat Matt Lauer in an arm-wresting match.
Write an opera.
Listen to an opera (not the one I write).
Domesticate a tapir.
Live an entire week impersonating Robert Mitchum.
Travel to every nation with the letter "Z" in its name.
Buy a Roomba.
Annotate Finnegan's Wake.
Discover a yet undiscovered method of skinning a cat.
I will let you know at the end of the year which of these I did not do.
