Stupid Human Tricks

A Shaolin monk in China recently ran 125 meters across 200 thin planks of wood floating on the water, an incredibly difficult and unprecedented feat some have dubbed “running on water”. He trained for 10 years to accomplish this task, which, let’s be honest, doesn’t even look particularly impressive on video. This gives Jeff and Anthony a chance to consider the application of one’s life in pursuit of perfection – even obscure, meaningless perfection. Is it worth it?
