I'm not entirely sure it's worth splitting hairs over whether something is an achievement or Feat of Strength. Feats of Strength are simply a subset of Achievements that don't have a point value attached to them. The main difference between them is possibility.An achievement is something that, given enough time, effort, talent, and teamwork, can hypothetically be done by anyone.A feat of strength may simply be technically impossible for a subset of players to complete.Achievements like "Insane in the Membrane" are a special class, however, as they are technically available for anyone to complete but are labeled Feats of Strength anyway. There are no restrictions that could bar a person from doing them. You just have to be nuts to want them.So yes, there are differences, but trying to say "OMG FEATS OF STRENGTH AREN'T ACHIEVEMENTS" is like saying a square isn't a rectangle (hint: it is).
