Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

36 hour gaming session with only 1 bathroom trip.

Other than that, I can stroke a breast for much longer than 58 seconds.

Are there really that many nascar fans on woot?

That Breaststroke time is good, but not coming from a swimmer it isn't thaaat impressive.

Eating 68 Hotogs and Buns in 10 minutes time. Astounding!

I really hope that everyone voting for the Nascar option is doing it as a joke. Because if not, then that is very depressing. Maybe even the reason that 'Murica is blazing the trail toward type 3 diabeetus.

But a 4 minute mile is very impressive on the other hand. Anyone can get strong, not that it's not impressive too, but not everyone can run. I about stroke out pushing for a 7 minute mile, and I run quite often.

Winning the Tour-de-France 7 times. No matter how many drugs you take, that is still the most grueling athletic event.

Is it called "points" in bowling? I honestly don't know. I have always just referred to it as "pins" and left it at that.

I have seen common bowlers throw a 300.
and there needs to be a time limit on the puzzle.
105 mph for a strike is impressive. There are only a few people even capable of doing that and controlling it.

How about staying awake for nearly 72 hours straight and gaining 6 pounds during the last Woot-Off because I couldn't leave the computer for 3 days while I waited for the Leak-Frogs to re-appear!?!?

And the 105 mph fastball is pretty good too.

1/30/07 First WOOT!: 3 Leakfrogs after watching WOOT-OFF for nearly 11 hours straight.

running for 3 years, 2 months, 14 days, and 16 hours.

Now that's what I call impressive.

4 minute mile got the most votes? I can do a 4 minute mile, or at least I could a few years ago. I'm no longer on a soccer team.

Kim Rhode... tying the world record for 99/100 clays in the 2012 olympics, and becoming the only American ever to win 5 consecutive medals in an individual event.

sub-50sec 100m butterfly

And while Lance Armstrong & the Tour de France is something of a joke right now, finishing first is still damned impressive, regardless of drugs ingested.

And, of course, winning the Ironman World Championship at Kona.

Say what you want about Lance Armstrong, but the man won those titles while fighting brain and testicular cancer. Attempting to do the same would have most humans crying in the fetal position. Just finding out that you have those cancers probably would.
