Big bags

Paddy Doyle holds the world record for bag punching. In 1983, he punched his way out of 38 wet paper bags in under a minute, an achievement never officially bettered. (The Soviet athlete, Alexander Borchuk, claimed to have punched through 41 in the same time in 1986, but this was never officially accepted.)

Things on the floor around ten feet (or more) away from you appear closer that they really are. The higher something gets, the further away it looks. At eye level, things look further away than they really are. www.purveslab.net
