For those of you putting together your bucket list of places you'd like to see before you die (Great Wall of China? Inca Trail? Delaware?) author and Salon contributor Catherine Price has written a book that should help you eliminate a few of your options. "101 Places Not to See Before You Die" takes a fascinating and hilarious look at some of the least appealing places and events on the planet -- from Montana's Testicle Festival to the Amsterdam Sexmuseum -- and explains in lucid terms just what you'll be missing out on (and why that's a very, very good thing). We've extracted 10 of Price's most memorable un-see-worthy places for a slide show, below. (Keep an eye out for the book's soon-to-be released iPhone/iPad app, which will allow users to contribute their own entries to Price's list).
