Top Ten Things That Are Impossible to Do


The Top Ten

1 Lick Your Own Elbow

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

Pfft...It's easy! Just write the word elbow on your arm and then lick the word. See, not so hard after all - AlphaQ

I can do it very flexible - Jackhammer619

Why would you want to do this? What’s the point of it? There’s nothing to be gained from it - Randomator

2 Travel at Light Speed

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

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.

The second smallest time is a nanosecond which is 1 billion times smaller than 1 second the speed of light can travel 1 foot in 1 nanosecond so it is impossible to travel at light speed I'm Nicholas Tauiliili I'm 10 turning 11

Yeah there’s no way this is happening - Randomator

4 Make a Top Ten List of 'Things to Love About Justin Beiber'

Are you KIDDING ME? Love? You mean JUSTIN BIEBER? That's so Impossible that will never gonna happen. I suggest bieber to just have a rest and sleep.

It would be easier to find a flying unicorn that can fire lasers than make that list (although there is a list called "Best Justin Bieber Songs" unfortunately) - CommentandList

Sorry P.W: that was a pretty reckless thing to do! - Britgirl

Well that’s definitely not impossible even though I’m not a JB fan - Randomator

5 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?

I think that's so true. How can you give only half of your love to someone you're supposed to be devoted to?

You love your mom, you love your dad, you love your aunt and your grandma and your grandpa and your kids, and your husband/boyfriend

It is only possible for double daters...

6 Fly

Airplanes bro

Because unless your dead and your in heaven then you don't have wings I'm sorry to tell you folks but that is impossible for a living human to do

You can fly in an air plane

What’s an airplane? - Randomator

7 Run a Two Minute Mile

Its easy just call usain bolt

I think it might be Impossible even though I'm a little chubby

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

I have ran 1 mile in like 6 mins so it must be possible with usain bolt or mo farah

8 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

It is possible just look up

9 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

That's unfair! Please ask Usain Bolt to do the same. - Kiteretsunu

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

Why would you do this? - Randomator

10 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!

If you go fast enough you can do it

12 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. - PositronWildhawk

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

That really is disgusting

I can do this! - Userguy44

16 Pushing a Boulder Up an Icy Mountain

Don't push a boulder up an icy mountain

This I agree with for impossible.

This would be pointless to do anyway - Randomator

17 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? - Britgirl

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. - egnomac

Sleep and sleep

18 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* )

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

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.

Yeah its impossible - Randomator

23 Make Your Own Animal

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

Done. Writing has its perks. - Cyri

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.

True but you can in robot style,duh,do you have a brain

I've tried it, and believe me, it's impossible.

Flexible people could do this - Randomator

I can do this

29 Hold Your Breath for an Hour

Nah, it's physically impossible anyway. If you hold your breath for more than 3 minutes, you'll eventually pass out/die. If anyone can actually do this, please let me in on how to!

It's called dying. - Cyri

The highest breath hold in history was 22 minutes but with the right technology and training we could probably do this in the next 75 years

This is one you probably shouldn’t try at home kids - Randomator

30 Divide 100 Into Three Equal Parts

Think of 100 not as a number but as a quantity of length, or fraction and it isn't impossible

With Decimals or not? Because... - Fandom_Lover

No matter how close you come the parts won’t ever be truly equal - Randomator
