Happened to me when I nearly drowned, I was so tired, couldn't even hold myself above the water, so I felt peace, and gave up trying. I didnt feel pain, or even the will to breath, it felt like I didnt need to. When my foot touched the bottom something snapped in me, and I felt more energy then I have every felt, and swam about 100m to shore afterwards I passed out.. After that I was like.. wow o_O;

"Natural Selection

Nope, it's not natural selection. The potential is in all of us. It is nothing more than dopamine flooding your body, and all the muscle fibres in an area working in tandem. If you need to lift a 1500 pound rock, all the muscle fibres in your bicep will constrict in tandem while dopamine floods your system to block out the excrutiating pain that causes.

It's not genetic. It's just simple dopamine, sugar, and coordination.

yeah i don't see the "insane ownage" gene in a human. genetics may help the mind a little, but it's more a willpower thing... varies person to person. doubt natural selection controls this much...seeing it doesn't really effect the ability to reproduce, seeing we're not in these kinda situations every day

It's not genetic, btw, we're pretty sure it's to do with the situation, so ya, basically luck, the variables all have to line up. I guess it takes a lot for our actual PHYSICAL bodies to realize we're in troouble, cause, like, our conscious self might know, but i suppose our actual bodies might not. It's also not natureal selection

anyone who thinks this is cool should check out the discovry or national geographic documentary series about the extremes of the human body, it explaains poo like this, 'cause guess what?/ WE ALL ARE CAPABLE OF THAT!!! well, maybe not quite, 'cause he was probs in shape, but "super-human strength" isn't super-human at all. It's normal human. It's truely amazing what our bodies are capable of when it thinks its in danger. Like, we can also run faster than a racehorse, for a time, (and i dont mean in a race, i mean top speed wise) It's SUPER COOL!!!

Firefighters and people who do good works like them are the true "heroes" we should be celebrating...

as opposed to obsessing over stupid celebrities who only ACT tough on screen...but in 'real-life' would not run into a burning building to save anyone's life.

Everything is toxic in high doses. The adrenaline your body produces in times of stress is normally what you need to get through the rough patches of your life. Pump it up even more, you have what occurred with the fireman. Increase the total amount to what's used to re-boot a person's heart in a hospital (on a healthy person) and they die of adrenal shock. Again, the fireman is very lucky to be alive, and it's very true that not everyone becomes superman after their adrenal glands start to charge you up. But, what really impresses me about it all is this;
A 270 kilo hardwood support beam crushed him. That's 598 pounds of wood that's pissed at how it was cut down and put in a building. Despite his dislocated shoulders (which would normally mean he shouldn't be able to raise his arms) he shoved this hunk of wood off of his body. The determination of that man is something to admire. Also, the amount of endorphins he's capable of producing.

to much adrenaline can kill you, because it cuases your heart to send extra blood, which causes it stress. so, simulating it might not be a good thing...

"Adrenaline...if they could find how to simulate it and produce it, we could probably do a lot more in our lives. All of course in the name of progress and good will...

Then you'll have superhuman douchebags abusing it all..."

yeah, it's called PCP. Also, it said this dude was 5'8 and 90kgs. Or in other words, 5'8 and 198 pounds. That is one strong son of a bitch.

They already have been able to make (well, get their hands on) adrenaline. There are certain situations where the heart slows down that far that they pump adrenaline into the body (I can't remember if it's directly into the heart or thats from Pulp Fiction), but they do have it.

"Despite how incredibly lucky he is to be alive, that's a natural bodily response to such a great threat. Isn't it cool how our bodies work?"

It may be a "natural bodily response" but it doesn't happen ALL of the time. What makes it so amazing is that while everyone has the potential of doing such super human feats, only a small percentage of people in those situations actually do them. It's kind of a luck of the draw, sort of thing. That's what confuses scientists: Why can't everyone in life threatening situations do superhuman things?
