Typically, attempts to hit on famous women via the Internet are destined for failure. Such advances aren't exactly unusual, are commonly creepy and probably not often even received.

But now here comes a guy named Bubby Lyles to do the impossible. We choose to go to the moon and hit on Lolo Jones via Twitter, JFK said, not because those things are easy, but because they are hard.

A while back Lyles sent Jones a tweet offering the following deal:

Well, wouldn't you know it: Lyles got his 150,000 retweets and, by golly, Jones is going to go out with him.

So let this be a lesson to all you young Cassanovas. It only seems impossible until somebody does it. Go get 'em, champs.
