Can you count to two thousand?

It's interesting how one of the most simple and mindless tasks imaginable can be so remarkably difficult. All of us as kids have tried at some point to see how high we could count, starting at lowly number one and racing to infinity. By about thirty or forty the novelty wears off and one realizes just how endless the game can become. It is too easy, and pointless, that doing it for as little as five minutes can induce a mind tedium that broaches torture. The focus and mental discipline required for such a task is suitable for nothing less than an android.

This remarkable fellow made it to two thousand before he had enough. Not including a few phone calls, a trip to the washroom, and pausing occasionally to alleviate mental anguish, the feat took him just under an hour. I presume however that he has spent several hours since making this video in contemplation, and confusion, about the unique mental exercise he endured. Lest you get the impression he was doing this for some kind of psychology research, the first thing he says after reaching two thousand is "Take that Chuck Norris."

I'm not sure if getting over a half million views on YouTube while wearing a t-shirt that says "My Life Sucks" can today be considered irony.

Next time he should count backwards from infinity. ;) Can you guess what T-shirt he will wear? : )

Counting backwards from infinity! Only then would he rival the power of Chuck Norris. For that he would need a Bruce Lee t-shirt.

: ) I was thinking more in the lines of "My life blows"; Curiosity didn't kill the cat..... Chuck Norris did.
