Question What to Do when Your Car Hits 100,000 Miles?

Ok guys, my car is just around the corner of hitting 100k miles.
This is only my second car Ive ever had. Ive never done any maintenance work to it besides cleaning the throttle body and cleaning the air filter on my intake.
The only thing Ive had changed was the cat converter because it was still under warranty, and that was at about 70k miles or so.
I know you are suppose to do some maintenance work when you hit the 100k mark, but what exactly?
I know there is google and such, but I wanna hear straight up from the balt owners!

seafoam? spark plugs? what?

Thanks guys.

Nitrous is like a hot girl with an STD, you always want to hit it but are afraid of the consequences.
I purposely down shift when i pass a prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.
