Top Ten Things That Are Impossible to Do

The Top Ten
1 Lick Your Own Elbow

I can do it (barely). I have a long tongue, and don't bend my elbow the right way. Yeah, they hyperextend. I lift my arm so my elbow is in front of my mouth and fully extended. Then I lick the side that's normally the bony side.

Britgirl - you are funny! I had visions of you pausing to try and lick your own elbow! What do you look like by the way? I imgine you as a tall brunette.

Yeah, it is impossible! I can't even get past an inch close to my elbow and SLOOP. Yeah, its impossible!

Wait. Let me confirm this one... (insert a few minutes here)...No, absolutely cannot be done!

2 Read With Your Eyes Shut

Hold up here... I read a comment that states blind people can do this... Why would a blind's person's eyes be shut to even try to read?

I have a sister has glasses takes them off and reads she also needs surgery on her throat!

If you are blind or can read with Braille, then you can read with your eyes closed.

If you can do this please let me in on the secret.

3 Travel at Light Speed

Traveling at light speed is physically impossible; light speed is 874,030 times faster than the speed of sound. The fastest man-made object (the Juno spacecraft) has only traveled 295 times the speed of sound.

If may still be possible in a way, if worm holes are real and they can patch you through to a different part of your universe almost instantiations then we can in fact travel faster than the speed of light.

Correct! It is physically impossible to reach 100% speed of light if you are comprised of any amount of mass and since mass and energy are one the same they both increase exponentially and infinitely the closer you reach C. So yes this camt be done and no warping space-time is not the same thing

Lets face it if we could the us government would probably hide from us so we can't do it

4 Stand on Your Palms and Race Against Usain Bolt on Feet

It doesn't say you have to win the races or even how far you have to races. Just to races against Usain Bolt on your hands, if you go one got I could that, easy

Tie his limbs together and make him hop. If he falls, he will have some trouble beating you...

I will give you a billion dollars if you are able to do this. Can you do this (also applies to Britgirl)

Well, you can race against him, you won't win, but you can do it.

5 Fly

Damn. I thought my elytra would work.

What's an airplane?

6 Walk on Walls

It is possible to run on walls and it is possible to walk on walls with boots that can make your feet stuck to the wall, but without any boots like that, it is impossible to walk on walls!

Don't people walk on The Great Wall Of China all the time?
And other walls as well?
Also, knock one down and walk on it.

You know, you could go to an upside down house, then you'd feel like you're on the floor but really you'd be on the roof.

Knock it down. Then it becomes like a floor. Beat that, Spider-Man!

7 Read This List 1000 Times Without Feeling the Need to Sleep

I managed two times.

I fell asleep at 200

Yeah because by the time you reach 100 it would probably be an even longer list

8 Achieve World Peace

Sadly, it's pie in the sky. Not achievable.

9 Teach a Goldfish to Play the Clarinet

My fish is very talented. He can not play the clarinet. The flute is a different story.

I have actually tried this and believe me it's impossible to do!

I only got my squid to learn...

10 Watch Stevie Ray Vaughan Perform at London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony

If it's on YouTube, then this has to go bye bye.

The Contenders
11 Stand at the Checkout in a Supermarket Without Looking at What The Person in Front Has in Their Trolley

I talk to them, compare prices and things. I do it all the time. Can't stop.

It's not exactly hard, all I have to do is look @ my dad, anyway, I'm short...

Easy just don't look

Blind people duh

12 Beat Ninja Gaiden (Xbox) Without Dying

So, untrue I did it

13 Be In More Than One Place at Once

I'm on Earth. But also in my own world...

By the way if some smart alec says something being at the 4 state corner that doesn't count

14 Run a Two Minute Mile

Much harder than flying because that item doesn't specify that you can't use an aeroplane.

I can run a mile in 10 minutes! Wow, I'm so slow.

Actually Usain Bolt ran it in 3 minutes 43 seconds and 13 hundredths of a second. ps I'm only 13!

Isn't the fastest like 3?

15 Love Two People at the Same Time

That's right we can't love two persons in the same time, because when you truly love someone you spend your days thinking about her/him... Can we think about two persons at the same time?

Depends what type of love you're talking about. I definitely love my family and friends and there's more than 2 people in my family alone.

It is impossible to love two people romantically at the same time. If it's love you only love one person and you don't doubt it.

That's kind of hard 'cause I like this boy in my class since 4th grade and now I am in 6th grade and I still love him. I think I won't like another boy in my life

16 Sneeze With Your Eyes Open

It is possible for some human beings to sneeze with both eyes open. However, I would recommend not trying to do so because sneezing with your eyes open will result in a major migraine. Also, just to let you know, your eyes will not "shoot from their sockets". That is a hoax. There is no muscle behind the eyeball that can possibly contract and push it out of the socket. Most people think that the eyelids help keep the eye in place while you sneeze, when in reality the eyelid doesn't have enough muscle capacity to do that anyway. The only reason why eyelids close when sneezing is because of a simple nerve reflex. (I'm 14 and I'm explaining simple anatomy to adults. *Face palm* )

Have you ever saw someone do this? If so, you are crazy, no one can do this unless that person can't blink, therefore that isn't possible. So this should be higher.

This is literally the most impossible thing on the list. Unlike all the others, you can't do this, no matter how hard you try.

Ugh! Your eyeballs would shoot from their sockets in a nanosecond.

17 Eat a Banana Without Making a Horrible Smacking Noise

It's just as well that bananas taste horrible to me, so I'm never in that gross situation. But I'm addicted to curries, though, so I'm always careful. And it's not impossible to avoid getting it on me, as long as I sit upright.

I think I'm a monkey, bananas are one of my favorite fruits for some reason.

Bananas taste disgusting

I do not like bananas.

18 Beat Donkey Kong Country Returns Without Losing a Life

No it isn't me and my mom play ALL the time!

That game is hard.

I had one life

19 Telepathy

It would be more frustrating than anything if it was possible.

Edit: to clarify, this is because I've read Wings of Fire. That form of telepathy seems like torture, even if it's a blessing.

It is impossible. I wish it wasn't, but it is. I just can't get through.

I wish I could talk to people without anyone eavesdropping...

I would always use it if I had it...

20 Eat Just One Potato Crisp

I managed to eat only one potato crisp once.

It's possible if they're plain Lay's.

What is a potato crisp?

Actually it's possible. eat one then eat one again your still eating one

21 Push a Boulder Up an Icy Mountain

This I agree with for impossible.

22 Watch the news without hearing about someone dying

I added this and I didn't add it because I want to hear that. I added it because it happens every time

This is possible. I'm deaf

23 Beat Catherine Without Dying

Who the hell is Catherine?

24 Watch the Artist Without Falling Asleep

I LOVE the Artist. I love everything about the film. Cannot fault it at all. I love the music... EVERYTHING about it. It's one of my favourite films OF ALL TIME. It'd be impossible for me TO sleep through such a wonderful film. Sorry for going on but the Artist is a film I'm so passionate about. Erm...I'll get off my soapbox now, shall I?

I have tried 3 times to get through this movie but end up falling asleep half way I don't know why anyone would put up with this garbage I hate this movie and nothing anyone can say will change my mind about it.

Sleep and sleep

25 Make Your Own Animal

This is not impossible! someone's done this before while trying to make a new species of bees (which the man succeeded) the species accidentally escaped quarantine and spread through South America into North America by the way the species was the africanized honey bee.

Done. Writing has its perks.

If you wanted to you could probably do it with genetics or something like that
