Better in theory!

Oct. Esquire Magazine has a list of 77 things that seem better in theory than in practice:

A partial list from their website:

Better In Theory
77 things that are never quite as good as they seem: an occasional Esquire service

by Mike Sacks and Ted Travelstead | Oct 01 '05

• Doin' it in a hot tub
• Being pampered by a bathroom attendant
• Hidden tracks at the end of CDs
• Menu items described as “beer battered”
• Armed revolution
• All-star games of any kind
• Participating in a food fight
• Unwinding at a drum circle
• Handball
• Telling it like it is
• Charlie Chaplin's silent antics
• Cinco de Mayo
• Winning a limo ride and backstage passes to a concert by being the 39th caller
• Extra cheese

Some further ones I agree with:

Meeting Courtney Love
Movies with hot air balloons or elephants
deep sea fishing with the guys
actors improvising
John Cage compositions
poetry slams
Vanity plates with your profession
movies realistically showing Christ's crucifixion
Front row seats to Blue Man Group.
Baby sitting babies

Your additions?
