What about the Declaration of Independence? I just watched "National Treasure" and it made me want to touch that thing oh so badly.

To your list I would add:

poop (any kind)
surface of sun
Britney Spears
top of Space Needle
Mt. St. Helens crater
lightning
crocodile (Crikey!)

I have a meme for you that I think you'd enjoy:

1. Pick a random book that has at least 123 pages.

2. Turn to page 123 and count off five complete sentences.

3. Type the next three sentences in your post.

4. Tag five other people.

For example:

"Since the expression of her surprise will consist only of a very slight elevation of one eyebrow, you have to watch closely for it.

"Storytelling skill ranks as one of the most important qualities in a prospective hunting-camp companion. The test consists of asking the subject about one of his scars."

That was Patrick F. McManus, "The Grasshopper Trap." Sorry about all the separate posts. I'm tired.
