Esquire Presents: What It Feels Like by A.J. Jacobs
Have you ever wondered what it feels like:
to be stuck in a tornado?
“[It] is exactly the feel of a freight train approaching—that low, ever-louder howl and the shuddering ground.”
to participate in an orgy?
“And all the while, the thought that keeps going through your mind (and through the cab ride home, and into breakfast the next day): ‘I’m at an orgy! I’m at an orgy!’”
to have a severe stutter?
“The thing is, there’s a disconnect thing between my mind and my tongue. My mind’s processing a thousand words a minute, and the tongue is only squeezing out ten or twelve.”
to be a mob hitman?
“It’s nerve-racking. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. Anybody who’s any good at this is concentrating with every nerve in their body, trying to get it done right and trying not to get caught.”
