Anthropology is the study of other cultures. At least that's what I got out of it after getting a bachelor's degree in Anthropology.
Going off of Bill's suggestions:
If you can spare the cash, join one of the teams for the 24 Hours of LeMons race. The 24 Hours of LeMons
Swing by Las Vegas and you can rent fully automatic machine guns.
Portuguese bull fights in California (that's the kind where they don't kill the bull).
Rent a car in San Francisco and play "Bullitt" late at night when it's a bit safer to get all four wheels off the ground.
If I'm around California when you're around, I'll take you to a ghost town in Nevada. Some friends and myself have adopted a town that we take care of.
