    A think tank of British scientists has come up with a new way of quickening the intellect - a brain-taxing spin on the old formula of 100 things to do before you die.

    The group urges us to take samples of our own DNA, measure the speed of light with chocolate and solve the mathematical mystery of the number 137.

    They also suggested booking in to see Galileo's middle finger (preserved in Florence) or ordering liquid nitrogen and making the world's smoothest ice cream.

    Other ideas included joining the 300 club at the South Pole (they take a sauna to 200 degrees fahrenheit then run naked to the pole in minus 100 degrees fahrenheit...

    They also offer suggestions for your remains after your death. My favourite was having the carbon in your ashes turned into a diamond.

    I have already done some of the things on my wish list; take a helicopter thru the Grand canyon; fly over Victoria Falls In Zimbabwe; swim with dolphins....

    What are some of the things you want to do before you die ?
