Well, there is the "Renaissance Man Octathlon" I've read about.. where "in
one continuous exertion, one 1) runs a footrace, 2) plays a game of
Monopoly, 3) skis a slalom course, 4) parses a Latin sentence,
5) swims a set of rapids, 6) speedreads the Wall Street Journal,
7) runs a steeplechase, and 8) solves a set of trigonometry problems."
Don't know how it's supposed to be scored.

Still wouldn't look good for me though..
