I was looking at some old posts, and there was one about member's signatures from May of this year. One (from ORDRyan28) said "What would you attempt if you knew you couldn't fail?" I thought this was a fascinating question, so I thought I'd throw it out to the membership. I've been thinking about this for ages, and I haven't come up with anything yet...
What WOULD you do if you knew you couldn't fail?

My answer...hmm....flying? Lame, I know, and not some stupid "go to the airport, wait in line, get on plane, eat 3 peanuts, fly 4 hours with 21" pitch, land at crappy airport" style, but really FLY...like a bird.
You should do it then. There is almost no way failing to play the lottery.
As for myself, if I knew I could not fail, I would go WINNING the bloody lottery...
Seriously, I don't find the question overly fascinating. If the plan includes something beyond the laws of physics, it would be more like "what would you do if you had a free wish".
But if this wish is possible within the laws of physics, then you should go for it. Failing is an essential part of life. If you refrain from doing something just because think you may fail, then you have failed already before you even started.
