Hmmm, seems like you've not done as many as I suspected. What? No Antartica?

It's me, @Moustachio said...

Yeah, but of the 89 I haven't checked off on this 150; 20 of them I never plan on checking off (D&D for 6 hours? Right!), 13 of them are very doubtful I'll ever check off, and 18 of them I will eventually check. So for this arbitrary list I'll get to 71% complete at best.
