I'm sure you can land and get an f-16 off a carrier if you wanted.

If you used an M-26 to sling load it like cargo.

Excuse me, I would most definitely track the distance. Diligently. And insist on repeated measurements, you can't have a definite answer with just one experiment, you need statistics.

True, but the fact that it flew for X feet would be somewhat secondary to the fact that you had a raging fire going on at the flightdeck

Might be secondary to you. It'd certainly never lose a chance at "studying" the art of flinging stuff from a carrier catapult . The deck crew can deal with the fire, I'm sure it'll be fine. It's a small price to pay for the advancement of science.

I wonder how far a human would fly if strapped to the catapult...

Even if it was possible to attach the nosegear of the Viper onto the launch-shuttle of the catapult at all, would go something like this:

Either the NLG would snap once the pilot ramped up the power, or it would rip the entire assembly off the aircraft the second the shuttle was released if it didn't break due to the powersetting required to get off the boat in the first place. Both incidents would mean that the Viper is now happily trying to ingest the deckplates and/or whatever came bouncing out of the aircraft as it slams down onto the radome and radar, most likely snapping the longeron (central beam of the nose-section going backwards towards the fuselage).
The NLG would get stuck in the Track of the Shuttle.. :-)
