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.

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

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.

How can anybody do that if anybody can do that please let me know

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

5 Fly

Damn. I thought my elytra would work.

You can fly in an air plane

Unless u have 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!

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!

If you go fast enough you can do it

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

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

I could Barely get this Far and it's like 5:00 where I am

I managed two times.

I fell asleep at 200

8 Achieve World Peace

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

Never will happen unfortunately

Yeah...apparently there's supposed to be a huge war before the apocalypse, so, yes, this is impossible.

Hah, this is wrong! I achieved world peace!

On Mars

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...

The only legit impossible

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

But ever the optimist, I live in hope... Haha! :))

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...

I can do it just look at your phone the whole time

It is possible just look up

12 Beat Ninja Gaiden (Xbox) Without Dying

Obviously you can't do that he is impossible

So, untrue I did it

13 Be In More Than One Place at Once

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

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

Yes you can. Everyone is on Earth and is in a country boom there you go. Two places at once 🤯

why di I try this

14 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?

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

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.

Not impossible for some - but then, how can that be real love? When you truly love someone, you give your whole heart to them.

15 Run a Two Minute Mile

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

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

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!

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.

It's surprisingly true you actually can't also your eyes might pop out if you could

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.

I love bananas but I can't do this

That really is disgusting

18 Beat Donkey Kong Country Returns Without Losing a Life

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

Become a pro at this game

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

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

I managed to eat only one potato crisp once.

Betcha can't eat just one lol

Hehe... yea just eating one potato chip is impossible!

21 Push a Boulder Up an Icy Mountain

Don't push a boulder up an icy mountain

This would be pointless to do anyway

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

I'm with the other guy. What in the name of God is this supposed to be? (And who is Catherine, anyway?)

Who the hell is Catherine?

um, wut is this

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

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

Done. Writing has its perks.

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
