Although many people throw this word around, a lot of things this term has been used as are in fact possible.

Impossible means no matter who does the task or how it's done, the set goal cannot be reached.
Such as pulling a TV character through the TV into your living room.

The antonym possible means that the set goal is possible, most likely by numerous parties.

Most people say "That's impossible" without knowing all potential parties and possible ways to achieve the specific goal, and most likely the goal can be achieved, just not in ordinary terms.

A lot of people ignore clearly impossible things, such as killing yourself and expecting to be a martyr of some sort and getting rid of their problems in doing so, when it truth it creates a lot, it's insanely selfish, and who knows what happens when you die? Oh well this isn't religion talk
Rob: Hey Dave! Dude let's see if we can jump in front of cars on the high way!
Dave: No you're an idiot, you'll die for sure.
Rob: It's impossible to die!

Ryan: Dude it's impossible to finish all of this homework.
Mom: Just do it, you'll finish it.

Rick: That's so impossible to take a toaster and eat it without removing the parts
Dave: Actually it is impossible, good job.

Some of the greatest achievements are made by people too stupid to know they are imposible.
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the work they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. They laguhed at me and told me it was impossible to achieve my goals.
They soon found out IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING.
impossible is nothing

"Impossible" originally was defined as something that is completely not possible to be done or completed. Modernly, it is a slang word, that is an adjetive. It is used for tasks that are of extreme difficulty, that one may have not completed. This one must have been the one to call it impossible, though in doubt, of his inability to do it, he knew it was not really impossible; just using it as an adjetive. Things that have not been completed by you, may be considerably impossible, due to your inability of the completion of what you are doing(trying).
Man 1: I'm going to run 5 miles in just 20 minutes.
20 minutes and 1 nanosecond later...
Man 1: I'm back- Oh, damn! Just 1 nanosecond off... this task is impossible!!!
Man 2: No, 'tis not impossible.
Man 2 runs 4.999999999 miles in just 19.99999999 minutes.
Man 1: You ran approximately 5 miles in approximately 20 seconds, see? is impossible!!!!!

Impossible is just a word that people use to justify them giving up.
This is impossible, I quit!, OH my god, I can't do this, it's impossible!

A word used so people can feel good about giving up.
Nothing is Impossible. Never give up.
Man shall never fly, Impossible.
Man will never walk on the moon, Impossible.
Everything that will be invented has been it is Impossible to go any further.
