Is there anything that a human being can never possibly do?

We humans are so overwhelmed with the millions of actions that we perform everyday. We call ourselves multitaskers and have todo lists and sometimes are concerned about over todo lists being overloaded.

But there should be zillions of things that human beings can never be able to do or are incapable of doing.

We might not have thought much about them. So thinking in this new perspective might create some new connections in your brain.

All the best.

      I'm only an inch away from the target, and I believe with a little more stretching, I can do it! I firmly believe those who are a tiny bit more flexible CAN indeed kiss their elbow easily:>)
