Bucket List - Cliff Jumping
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/cliff_jump

Before doing a cliff jump, keep in mind that pressure can be a huge issue and take care of your ears by using a few drops of olive oil or silicone.    It is said that most of the professional cliff divers (in fact, 98% ) dive feet first, mainly because diving head first is very dangerous.

Cliff divers stare death in the face before every dive. Each leap is carefully calculated but still poses the threat of serious injury or even death. The danger associated with the sport has even earned it the nickname tombstoning.

The daredevil act dates back to 1770, when King Kahekili, the last king of Maui, leapt from Kaunolu, a 63ft. cliff and entered the water below without causing a splash, the king earned the nickname “birdman.” Later, he made his warriors jump from cliffs to prove their courage and loyalty.

Bucket List - Go Whale Watching
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/whale_watch

Whale watching is the practice of observing whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. Whales are watched most commonly for recreation but the activity can also serve scientific or educational purposes.  Some cultures see whales as divine beings, such as in some places in Ghana and the Vietnamese, who occasionally hold funerals for beached whales.

Humpback whales only eat in summer, feeding off their fat reserves during the winter.  The Blue Whale is the largest known mammal that has ever lived, with a length of up to 105 ft long and weight of 150 tons. That’s the weight equivalent of 150 small cars!

Bucket List - See the Aurora Borealis
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/see_the_aurora_borealis

A natural electrical phenomenon characterized by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky, usually near the northern or southern magnetic pole.

The lights also produce a strange sound for those close enough to hear, which has been described as similar to the sound of applause. In the southern latitudes, there is a similar phenomenon, called the “aurora australis”.

Their official name is the “aurora borealis.” “Aurora” comes from the Roman goddess associated with the dawn; “borealis” is derived from from the Greek word for the north wind, “boreas”.

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/horseback_ride_on_the_beach

Horseback riding is the sport of sitting on the back of a horse while controlling its movements.  Arabian horses have one less rib, one less lumbar bone, and one or two fewer tail vertebrae than other horses.

A horse typically sleeps two and half to three hours a day.  October 13, 1984 a couple years of Emile Brager and Marie Roesle embarked on the longest race-horse to traverse the Americas from Cabode de Hornos to Alaska-is a trifle 25.000 km! This unusual adventure ended in Faibanks, after 4 years in September 1988.

Bucket List - Snowkiting
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/go_snowkiting

Snowkiting or Kite boarding is an outdoor winter sport where people use kite power to glide on snow or ice. The sport is similar to kitesurfing, but with the footwear used in snowboarding or skiing.  Snowkiting is one of the fastest growing extreme snowsports in the world.

In 1972, Dieter Strasilla and his brother Udo, began parachute-skiing and later perfected a system using self made paragliders and a ball-socket swivel, allowing people to kitesail upwind or uphill and also to take off into the air at will.

Bucket List - Ice Fishing

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/ice_fish

Ice fishing is the practice of fishing through holes in the ice on a lake or river.  Did you know the current world’s largest ice fishing contest has over 15,000 anglers?  That’s right…It’s held in the month of January on Gull Lake, north of Brainerd, Minnesota each year.  They actually drill over 20,000 holes for the event! 

The hole for ice fishing should be no more than 12 inches or 30.5 cm, to keep the ice near where you stand or sit as solid and stable as possible.  This also helps prevent a person falling all the way through in an accident.  Ice does not freeze to a uniform thickness on lakes.  The speed, temperature and source of water currents from rivers cause variations.  Snow cover on the surface can affect the stability of ice.  Air currents can cause erosion of the surface.

Bucket List - Swim with Sea Turtles
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/swim_with_sea_turtles

Sea turtles are large marine turtles with very large flippers and they usually live in tropical and subtropical oceans.  Sea turtles’ size varies greatly, depending upon species — from the small Kemp’s ridley, which weighs between 80–100 pounds, to the enormous leatherback, which can weigh more than 1,000 pounds.

From leatherbacks to loggerheads, six of the seven species of sea turtles are threatened or endangered at the hand of humans.  Each species relies on a different diet: greens eat sea grasses; leatherbacks feed on jellyfish and soft-bodied animals; loggerheads eat heavy-shelled animals such as crabs and clams; hawksbills rely on sponges and other invertebrates; and the Kemps ridley prefers crabs.

Tabulaa:  Bucket List - Experience Weightlessness
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/experience_weightlessness

Weightlessness is a  state in which an object has no actual weight because it is in space or in a situation where a object is unaffected by gravitational attraction. 

"Zero gravity" or even nearly zero gravity is a misnomer, and does not really exist anywhere in the universe. Gravity is an omnipresent, if sometimes subtle force. What is usually meant is instead better described as weightlessness.

There are ways to simulate weightlessness that do not involve going into space. Since the early 1970s, aircraft flying on six-mile long parabolic arcs have been used to create 25-30 seconds of weightlessness. The NASA aircraft that have filled this role are traditionally dubbed “vomit comets” because the induce Space Adaptation Syndrome.

The two biggest problems with weightlessness and the human body are what the loss of resistance does to muscles and bones. Muscles begin to atrophy, and bones experience osteopenia or the loss of bone mass. These things happen because the lack of resistance tells your body to stop maintaining its bone and muscle tissue.

Bucket List - Attend La Tomatina

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/attend_a_tomato_fight

The estimated number of tomatoes used are around 150,000 i.e. over 40 metric tons.  At around 10 AM, festivities begin with the first event of the Tomatina. It is the “palo jamón”, similar to the greasy pole. The goal is to climb a greased pole with a ham on top. As this happens, the crowd work into a frenzy of singing and dancing while being showered in water from hoses.

The tomato fight has been a strong tradition in Buñol since 1944 or 1945. No one is completely certain how this event originated.  THeir are several theories on how this tradition started, one of the most popular theories is that disgruntled townspeople attacked city councilmen with tomatoes during a town celebration.
