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

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

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

Yes it is impposible

3 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

As soon as some absurdly minded teenage girl sees this, they're going to go ahead and do it. I think a REASONABLE list of things to love about JB is impossible. - PositronWildhawk

Sure is impossible

4 Read With Your Eyes Shut

Blind people can do this.

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

I stand corrected. Thank you! - Britgirl

There’s something called audiobooks - awesomedp900

I think we're talking about reading a normal book with your eyes closed - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

5 Fly

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

Airplanes bro

You can fly in an air plane

sky diving

6 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?

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.

U can your family

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

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

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

I tried and lost

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


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. - Billyv

The Contenders

11 Beat Ninja Gaiden (Xbox) Without Dying

So, untrue I did 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 do not like bananas.

I'm Psychic at times.

I always wanted it :-)

It's always possible

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.

I did it and it hurt so bad I'll never try again

24 Make Your Own Animal

30 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!

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

It's called dying. - Cyri

31 Flush the Toilet Without Looking First

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