Tumblr is a bubbling pot of content, varying from endless text posts of different assortment to hilarious (or at times offensive) memes to millions of photos. You can find almost anything you’re looking for, although might come across something that you never even wanted to see. And while posts on that social media platform can swing from one extreme to another, it is no secret that there are times where people unite to create something great. Weave words into a strong message or create a funny story out of a single hint.
Well, one user followed the example of hundreds before them and created a funny fictional conversation between a human and an alien. The exchange focuses on one aspect of humans that the extraterrestrial friend seems to be completely flabbergasted by – human strength.

What the original author is referring to in the funny exchange is actually called hysterical strength. It’s a phenomenon where people exhibit extreme strength, far beyond what is regarded as normal. It usually occurs in life-and-death situations, like mothers lifting cars to save their children or people fighting off wild animals.
While the feat itself is quite fascinating and might remind one of all the superheroes on TV, it is also a good reminder that humans have their limits, after all. Hysterical strength can result in serious damage to one’s body from excertion.
Here’s what people had to say in response to the original post
