Sullivan’s List

Roy Sullivan was a park ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia who was struck by lightning 7 times during his years on duty  (think of the dude in the nursing home in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button).  After each strike he would talk about making a list of the things he would like to do before he died, which I personally find kind of ironic since this guy seems nearly invincible – except for the part where he shot himself over unrequited love.  Anywho, he never ended up making his list and in his honor many people have made their own “Sullivan’s Lists” or “Bucket Lists” to record their goals before they get zapped by lightning.
