    That Comic-Con thread got me thinking of this. Is there a big event (music, sporting, general nerdery) that you want to attend sometime? Or what big events did you attend that are awesome? The obvious answer is "a national championship in which the Cyclones play," but what are some other answers?

    I think I'd really like to hit SXSW at some point.

    World Cup or Olympics in another country.

    Been thinking about Russia in 2018 for the World Cup but we'll see about that

    World Cup in a country where I won't get murdered, hopefully they take it away from Qatar and give it to us in 8 years. Would love to go to The Emirates to see Arsenal.

    I think it would be a blast to be an extra in one of my favorite TV shows...probably "The Walking Dead".

    I could be a zombie...!

    I want to attend the first ever public space flight to the moon. However, I don't see that happening in my lifetime.

    So using nepalese slave labor to build stadiums isn't in the spirit of the world cup?

    I'd like to go to Spain and run with the bulls. And I'd like to go watch ISU play in a marquis bowl game, as well as a Final Four game.

    Go on a world tour of all the big parties. I've been to Gay Mardi Gras in Melbourne, Australia and that was the craziest party I've ever been to. I'd like to go to Oktoberfest, Mardi Gras, Carnival in Brazil.

    Sports related. A World Cup would be fun (rather it be abroad), NCAA National Championship or Final 4, or just do Vegas for the first weekend of the tourney.

    Great choice. That event is absolutely nuts. It's pretty much old hat to have someone crash and die every year.

    In that same vein I'd love to attend the first F1 race in the US (in a long time anyways) in Austin, Texas this October.
