60 Things Worth Shortening Your Life For


From the "not exactly fishing related department" comes this article in Esquire magazine that spells out 60 things the author feels are worth shortening your life for. Here are few of our favorites from the list:
1. Danger dogs. The Tijuana delicacy -- a hot dog wrapped in bacon, fried, and topped with mayo -- has made its way to San Diego and Los Angeles, sold from carts outside stadiums, clubs, and wherever hungry drunks congregate.
12. Punching Barry Bonds in the face.
15. Smoking Cubans (In Cuba).
26. Combo No. 4 at the Varsity in Athens, Georgia.
28. The fugu (poisonous blowfish) tasting menu at Morimoto in New York and Philadelphia
32. Carousing with the Mob.
Feel free to add your own (fly fishing related or not) in the comments.

A close runner up was the Krispy Creme Buger. That just sounds naughty!

Not sure that I've heard of the Krispy Creme "Buger". What size hook do you use and in what conditions do your use this fly?

All i know is that you shouldn't use it for catch and release fishing. If the trout eat them then they float to the surface as a result of hardening of the arteries.
