It's usually a good feeling to be "on top".

To be found at the top of the list of a notable or unique accomplishment.

Though having the distinction of being in the top 0.1 percent of something might not always be something to brag about, resulting in some keeping this distinction to themselves.

If only because some people might be unusually fascinated by their so-called "accomplishment", that they'll never stop being bombarded by questions.

Redditor ImLostInTheForrest was curious to hear if any members of the Reddit community believed they were in the 0.1 percent of anything, be it commendable, bizarre or unfortunate, leading them to ask:

"What’s something you believe you may be in the 0.1% of?"


A mighty heart indeed

"Scars on my heart."

"I have about 30, I think."

"On my 4th heart procedure, I had 24 cardiac ablations."

"They use radio waves to kill tissue to create scarring so that effectively signals can't travel through that way."

"During one procedure, epicardial, meaning both inside and outside the heart. by the top electrophysiologist on the east coast."

"He said only one other patient of his had more done in one procedure."

"Took 10 hours."

"I could hear the nurses gossiping about me in the hallway."

"This was 7 years ago, and now my heart is working great!"- pearlie_girl·

Extremely comfortable in my skin

"Half of my body is a birthmark of tan skin, and the other half is pale white."

"It's right down the middle of my stomach and same with my back."

"I've only ever seen 1 person online with it saying 'chimerism' but idk if that's same with me."

"Idk but it's uncommon." - User Deleted

Still standing!

"Still living with stage IV lung cancer for 13 yrs."- Flashy-Cattle-8086

Big shoes to fill indeed...

Love your job!

An exclusive club no one wants to be part of...

"I have this condition called Miyoshi Myopathy, which, thankfully, affects only my calves and hence my walking capabilities."

"My doctor told me it is rare, but tbh statistically rare does not really mean anything, everyone might have it but they either did not get out of their way to test it, via taking blood and had it examined in a lab, or they just never realized there was something wrong at all."

"If you are wondering why I said 'Thankfully it only affected the legs', it is because it is a muscle disorder, and some disorders affect Cardiac, heart, and Pulmonary, lungs, muscles that will obviously not be pretty."

"I have to get tested every year to make sure all my vital functions are normal and as of now nothing significant is noted and I should be living a long and healthy life."- 1123Icantthinkofname

It's harder than you think...

"Folks who know percentages."- mrg1957

Just one?

"Apparently only 0.1% of people become mechanical engineers in the US and an even smaller percentage are women, so maybe that?"

"I was also less than 2 lbs when I was born, and I think the percentage is probably similar."

"I somehow have no lasting physical issues from that, though my sister has cerebral palsy."- s_p_o_c_k

Plenty to go around!

"I have 3 functional kidneys."

"No it doesn't mean I pee more."

"No it doesn't mean I can drink more alcohol, thats the liver."

"No I won't sell it for under $71,241." - User Deleted

While some wouldn't necessarily consider some of these things an accomplishment, all of them certainly make for fascinating conversation starters.

Seriously, where would the third kidney even go...?

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.
