human sum of best was like 4:56.6 or .5 at the time and it wasn't thought to be humanly impossible. Also that's not a great metric. Let's say somehow there's a new trick that saves 4 seconds and someone gets a 4:53 with it. It would be a time that was previously thought to be literally impossible, but not speedrun of the decade.

IMO it should be Andrew's 4:59 back in 2010 because it's both a big milestone in smb1 speedrunning and it broke the 5m barrier. And might be the last "minute-barrier-breaker" (:P sorry for the bad name) for smb1 any%.

either a) 4:55.913 because of 9th attempt clutchness or b ) andrewg's 4:59 because of how big the sub 5 milestone was and still is

Mine was Kosmic's 1st 18:59 at Warpless!! I was so shocked at that moment that his practice in a few weeks, or maybe months were paid off.
