Just to setup this hypothetical correctly, there are 3 rules to how you answer.



If you could have an out-of-body experience (think of something like the movie John Malkovich) and perform any physical fitness feat in the world — what would you choose?

Three clarifying rules before you answer this hypothetical:

  1. You can only perform this feat ONCE (One-and-done, baby)
  2. This feat must be something you could NEVER perform successfully, even if you dedicated the rest of your life to it (think grandiose in your answer — not “I’d like to run a mile in under 7 minutes.”)
  3. It has to be humanly possible (not “I’d like to jump over a house!” or “I’d like to throw a football 300 yards!”)

My answer

Run the fastest 100m dash

Is there a more explosive, dominant, prestigious feat than saying:

“I’m the Fastest Human on the Planet!”

I really can’t see anything that could rival the experience of running 100 meters in less than 10 seconds. The average person really just can’t comprehend how fast this is. I imagine it feeling like being in a car, but my legs are moving. Insane.


Perform a Triple Axel in Figure Skating

The triple axel is a big deal in skating, and it’s almost mystical. It’s requires a massive amount of skill.

However, on this side of actually experiencing a triple axel — I don’t think my initial response would be: “WOW, that was the MOST ridiculous thing EVER!”

Other Answers debated

  1. Climb Mount Everest
  2. Highest Pole Vault
  3. Gymnastics Floor Exercise
  4. Gymnastics Parallel Bars
  5. Run a 4 minute mile

What would you choose?
