My post-death list of DVDs to watch

Jeremy and I have this idea that after we die, we'll be able to check out the DVDs of our lives as well as any other event that ever happened on earth. For example, there was this one time while we were dating that we went hiking in the mountains near Provo fairly soon after a fire there had disrupted wildlife habitats, pushing more wild animals into areas usually only frequented by humans. After a few hours, we were almost to our destination when ahead of us on the trail, from behind some bushes, came the sounds of a really large animal. We turned around and ran back down the mountain and although it was the right thing to do, we have wondered ever since: what was behind that bush? Was it a mountain lion, like we thought? Or was it a deer or even just a pack of energetic squirrels? The DVD of that hike (from a different perspective, obviously) is high up on our list of scenes from our own lives to check out after we die, so we can finally KNOW.

On the list of events at large to watch on DVD:
- seriously, what happened to Amelia Earhart?
- what really happened to those campers in Russia in 1959?
- how about the Tunguska event?
- what did "CROATOAN" mean, anyway?

Etc. You get the idea. The possible survival of Anastasia Nikolaevna used to be on my list, but I'm pretty sure that they've since proved that she was buried in a mass grave in Siberia along with her family. I'm glad that's cleared up.

What's on your list of things to check out on DVD after you die?

YES, the Roanoke colony HAUNTS me! So funny, I've always thought that would be the first question I'll ask when I die.

Also, did you see this?

(That link is in reply to what could have been in the bushes. Plus, I'm gonna need to see that Patten story for myself at some point.)

Hilarious! Because I have told Jeff many times that I have a list of movies I want to watch in the afterlife too. #1 is a time lapse of the creation. Seriously, I want to see how that all went down.

I want to see all my ancestors - where they lived, what they did, what they were like. I've often wished I could go back in time and see my roots.

Bridget said...

WOW. I watched the video and it doesn't look real to me. However, I am now looking forward to hearing more about the Patten story. Awesome.

I want what Susanne wants! Wouldn't it be something to step into our ancestor's time/environment for a day or a week or a month!
