    So, i am going to ask you off-topicers a random question, which hopefully will help me getting some inspiration. It may sound like a quiz question, here it is:

    If you could transport a living human being (age: 18-25) from the northpole to the southpole, as fast as possible, without damaging the human in any way and being able to break/stop/land at the end, how would you do it.

    Conditions:


    1. The answer must be fairly realistic, but crazy ideas are also accepted, since they usually work good as inspiration. Otherwise you would just answer: Magical Teleportation ect.
    2. The human must not go underground. However, under water/over the skies is fine.
    3. Any vehicle is allowed. However, it must be something that is already created in the real world, in other words, the world you and i actually live in.
    4. No Magic
    5. The human must not die.

    It would be great to see many answers. For those who really tries, i will give them +rep for helping me out. Thanks in advance.

    Wait till its summer in the north (who cares if he dies). Then use a smallish plane to fly him to the north of Scotland. Then place the bag (he died, sigh but meh) in a Bugatte Vayron and drive at a rediclious speed (yelling POWWWWer with funny camera angles and high tech sounds and batman music) all the way to south spain (using channel tunnel to cross to the main land). Once there, let him freeze in a fridge for 6 months while driving around randomly in various fast cars before loading him on a plane. Fly the plane to refule in South Africa, then fly over the south pole and parachute him (on fire ofcourse, as it would be boring otherwise) down to the pole and head over to Brazil. For the grand finalle, light the whole plane on fire so its a flaming fireball and you parachute out to safety (also on fire) and to a week in a 5 star hotel (with huge flames for decoration and finally drive away in your car made of fire). Who cares this took a whole year, but every minute of it was the most awesome.... IN THE WOORLD!

    Ok I think I have been watching too much Top Gear....

    Added more conditions, just to clearify some important things.

    Very funny answers, however, not very helpful (i lol'd for many seconds). Would be great if you could give a good answer, i do know that it is a difficult one.

    @Mognakor: I think that you want something big to pull the human to the southpole. It is a nice idea, but not quite what i was looking for. Nice illustrations, +rep.
    @Icedrake: No, no magic allowed.
    @Dr Super Good: yeah that sounds a lot like a joke Jeremy would say.

    Get a ship and sale to the north pole, send an expidition team to pick him up and then sale straight to the south pole. Finally send him off with an expidition team.

    Not the fastest way but sure as hell is the easiest and allows recovery times for team and crew.

    The fastest would be to do the exact same but sale straight for the nearest airport (alaska or cannada or some place) and send him by air all the way to southern chille (in south america). From there get another boat (one you prepared eariler) and sale quickly to the coast and send out an exibition team to the south pole. You could also send a plane to parachute him down but that can be very risky due to wind conditions and the cold (he might not survive there).

    Damage the orbit of the Earth, ie. damaging its magnetic field, so that the North and South poles switch place, getting you instantly to one another. NOTE: Very dangerous for the Earth's environment.

    Or just wait umpteen thousand years... The earth does this naturally from time to time at approximatly even intervals.
    Ofcourse humanity has yet to experience it in its civilized form as we have only had the means to detects it in the last few hundred years.

    i think the most possible fastest way is to speedboat all the way to the northpole following the International dateline as a route. you wont encounter land this way. another one would be a jumbo jet from south to north, although im not sure if there would be a suitable take off lane and landing site on both poles:)

    Speed boats are too slow, the fastest would involve a plane in some way (as they do not suffer as much drag so can easilly reach speeds of over 600 KM/h. Infact it would probably be a chain of carriers which you use to fly between to get between the poles.

    then maybe just place a carrier at north pole, and another on southpole then another somewhere in between. then the trip should be 2 planes away

    Use a jet plane and go against earth's rotation for faster speed. (Bro tip - Use magnets to boost jet plane's thrust power)

    Agreed. During wars, people use shovels as the frying pan to fry an egg.
