three word horror story: The beep test
OKAY SO AT MY SCHOOL ITS CALLED THE FUCKING PACER AND THAT JUST SOUNDS TERRIFYING ENOUGH BUT THE BEEP TEST SOUNDS LIKE A GODDAMN ELEMENTARY GAME BUT NO THIS IS HELL AND EVIL WRAPPED INSIDE A GYM OF SELF LOATHING AND SWEAT
what the fuck is the beep test
someone please educate the innocent
You run until you die
The pacer is like hunger games for kids ages 6-14. Okay so you have like a week in gym class where the coach is like “everybody this week we’re going to test you to see if you’re healthy or not and if you’re not that really sucks and we’re gonna give you an f” The pacer is the most horrifying of the tests. Like 80 kids line up on one side of the gym and the teachers play this cd that says in this creepy robotic voice “When the recording beeps, run to the other side of the gym. You must be at the other side before the next beep or you will be eliminated and your score will be recorded.” So you have to sprint across the gym and the first few rounds is all right because it’s pretty easy to make it to the other side in 10 seconds. But then it speeds up. What seems easy quickly becomes hell as you have 80 sweaty kids trying to out run each other so they don’t have the public humiliation of being the first kid to quit OR TO COLLAPSE. By the 30th lap, about half the kids have sat down. This is the weaker half. This is the half that must be eliminated. never be a part of this half of you will be excluded for the rest of eternity. The cd keeps going, faster and faster until you have a winner who is like the king of the pacer and is considered better than everyone else.
this test is hell
