How many push-ups is an impressive number? 25? 50? 100? My arms get tired just typing those numbers, which makes Rakhim Kurayev of Chechnya practically superhuman. Over the course of two hours and 25 minutes, Kurayev did 4,105 push-ups... and he is only five years old!


Kurayev did the push-ups in an attempt to break the world record, but Guinness has sadly not yet given him his certification because they have some "minor questions" about the attempt.


This 5yo Chechen reportedly can do 4k+ push-ups without a break youtu.be

Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, a controversial figure in the international community known for his loyalty to Putin and human rights abuses, wanted to be sure the child was rewarded for his incredible feat, however, and so gave him the gift every five-year-old wants: a "Mercedes-Benz C-Class worth $35,000." Kurayev won't be legally allowed to drive the car for another 13 years, and may well have preferred a donation to his college fund or perhaps a home gym, but wasn't about to look a gift horse in the mouth! When Kadyrov gave him the car, Kurayev jumped on the hood and started doing some push-ups.

His feats of strength have earned Rakhim the nickname the "Chechen Schwarzenegger." He'll be attempting to break the world record once again next week, this time with Guinness officials standing by. While he's doing his push-ups, Rakhim will also be watching cartoons on a cell-phone—two and a half hours is a long time for any kid to sit still doing one thing.


Twitter was a little intimidated by the five-year-old's strength:




Good luck on breaking the record, Rakhim! You've already left most of us in the dust by a WIDE margin.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
