My favorite mind fuck about gender in relation to sports, the World Records for Push-Ups:

  • non-stop (male): 10,507; Minoru Yoshida (JPN), Oct 1980
  • non-stop (women): 302; Maria Tobar (USA) 23 August 2014 in Sacramento, USA

10k push-ups is fucking unbelievable - how long does that even take?

10,507 at one push-up per second is almost 3 hours.

Compared to 302 at one push-up per second... 5 minutes. Not a bad effort, but it looks like nothing compared to the male record.

That guy has held that record for nearly 40 years too. The women's one was only recent. I wonder if anyone has tried beating the male record recently?

It's Japan so probably like 15 minutes. Have you ever seen them play DDR?

Holy fuck. 10,000 push ups. Made me think of Floyd Mayweather. Floyd Mayweather apparently, when he was in jail, would do 1,300 push ups a day. Here I am struggling to do 100 push ups.
