Superman took Thomas and me on a Sunday drive. I started thinking about how fast many things in my life go. Then I stumbled upon this website, List25, where they have educational and yet entertaining lists. I like this 25 Fastest list, but I would like to add some of my own entries.
25. Fastest Rapper: NoClue
Trust me when I say, I have no clue who this guy is, but I am impressed with his Guinness Book of World Records for being the fastest rapper. They say that in 2005, he spit out 723 syllables in 51.27 seconds. That’s like 14.1 syllables per second. One…who counted them? Two…I live in the south, no one can speak that fast. If fact, we are proud of our drawl Ya’ll.
24. Fastest Guitar Player: John Hicks, aka Dr. Hot Licks
So, Dr. hot Licks played Flight of the Bumblebees at 600 beats per minute perfectly…twice, according to GBWR. Now, I thought the banjo duel in the movie Deliverance was pretty darn fast, but this guy blows them away!
23. Fastest Land Animal: Cheetah
22. Fastest Bird: Peregrine Falcon
21. Fastest Waterslide: Insano
Those crazy Brazilians built this super fast water slide, so YOU too can plummet down at 65 miles per hour! Can you say wedgie?!? That really doesn’t sound like fun to me. In fact, just looking at this picture makes my stomach lurch.
20. Fastest Eater: Takeru Kobayashi
Takeru holds the world record for eating the most cocktail wieners in one minute (54), the most Peeps in 30 seconds (25), most grilled cheeses in 1 minute (13) AND the most turkey in 10 minutes! One of the many crazy things about this so-called sport is that the competitors are mostly skinny. They train. They practice. They get paid for this!
19. Fastest Man: Usian Bolt
18. Fastest Woman: Florence Griffith Joyner
17. Fastest Racquet Sport: Badminton
16. Fastest Rollercoaster: Formula Rossa
15. Superman Driving
13. I’m Losing My Mind Fast
Just this past week, I thought an appointment was at 12:30…oops, not! It was at 12:00 and the doctor had gone home. And on Thursday, Superman asked if I had a meeting that night. I thought for a moment…hmmm…no, not tonight, but I did LAST NIGHT!
12. Speedy Gonzolas
11. Weekends End Too Fast.
10. My Coffee Cools Too Fast.
9. Kitty Getting The Heck Out Of Dodge
8. Clean House.
7. Fastest Cookie Snagger: Sam
6. Losing Exercise Endurance.
I was dedicated to the 5:30 AM Boot Camp class at the gym for a couple years. I got strong, could do 30 push-ups, and loads of crunches. Class got cancelled for a few months. I go back and can barely do 15 push-ups. UGH! I was at a point where I could sorta easily run, or maybe jog, 3.5 miles. Don’t run for two or three weeks, I’m huffing and puffing to get to the next mailbox. Double UGH!
5. Time Goes so Fast.
4. Children Growing Up.
3. Lose My Focus.
I heart yearns to be in God’s presence at all times. Yet the world comes at me so fast, I have to make a choice. Which road to I follow? I so easily take that easy road. Then I end up feeling empty, tired and weary. It happens so fast I don’t even realize it’s happened!
2. Fast Weight gain.I’m not even going to post a picture. It all goes along with #13, 12, 6, 3. Take your pick.
1. Loss of Energy.I’m just too tired to find a picture. But I’m sure you’ve been here. One day you are feeling great and next….well, you know.
Well, my friends…I want to thank all of the wonderful ideas submitted from Facebook friends. And thanks to you for dropping by. If you have any other ideas of things that go fast, please comment!
