All of our brave young men and women in uniform serving our country,.....

(except those jerks on "Top Shot")

The original seven astronauts, if you ever go to NASA museum, as in Johnson space center in Texas, look at one of the "capsules" these men were asked to strap themselves in,....on top of a large rocket, and be launched into space. The first ones looked like something you might build in your garage. Sheet metal,...wires dangling behind the instrument panel,....geeez, there's no freakin way !

Norman Borlaug. He saved a planet, most likely the one you live on now.


The greatest guy you've never even heard about. Nobel prize winner, never a seeker of fame, just a guy wanting to feed the folks that need food.

As for any public figure, I think I'll keep that quiet, for fear of getting banned.
Its a great movie.. I wish it was on netflix as i havent seen it for some time..
I would love to own a Tucker too, but a Delorean would be my second choice, as theres only 47 of the original 51. They usally sell for a half million and up!!... Theres a guy with 3 of them! Lucky!!..!.. Its a funny sounding car though!

My parents, they raised up three dumb-asses kids with very little, always found a way. Always there for us if we needed them.

After them it would be one of the greatest Americans ever, Thomas Jefferson, no introduction needed.
