Who were your heros?
#1
Who were your heros?
I have countless icons, both historical and media.

I love MLK, Lincoln and RFK and Rosa Parks and John Lewis and A Phillip Randolph. 

But I also was fond of Charlie's  Angels, The A Team, John Cutter in Passenger 57 and Axel Foley in Beverly Hills Cop.

What minority hero, male/female, black white or whatever, did you look up to growing up?

My father.

And it’s ‘heroes’, not ’heros’.

Funny how you didn’t mention her in your opener.

It isn’t so much that you suck at spelling as it is that you aren’t willing to do anything about it.

And as far as my spelling, YOU STILL DO NOT GET IT. I do try. I actually correct myself more than you think. You simply only notice the times I miss, and not all the times I do correct myself.  Selection bias and sample rate error.

Eleanor Roosevelt. Booker T. Washington. Chester A. Nimitz. A one-legged Marine who taught me to not hate the world.

Of course I don’t notice the times you correct yourself - how could I? It’s not selection bias, as I have only one data set (your spelling errors) from which to select. And it can’t be a sample rate error, because I can’t sample what you’ve already corrected.

I’m happy that you view your mum as one of your heroes. I withdraw my earlier criticism.

No heroes. Looked up/admired to list is to long.

RE: Who were your heros?
I had to laugh that you mentioned the fictional A-Team. It was a silly TV series but it definitely had some moments when you clench your fists, laugh out loud and absolutely love the fictional heroes. I started watching this show because of Mr. T but I kept watching it because of George Peppard. Hannibal definitely had it when a plan came together. Awesome character. The real-life actor was a bit of a dick but what can you do?

My real-life hero is without a doubt, Elon Musk. I don't agree with him on every point and in fact think his Mars plan is idiotic. But I am on my knees in admiration for what this man has done. Between his single-handed demonstration of the practicality and superiority of electric propulsion of small vehicles to his amazing demonstrations of the practicality of true re usability of rockets, I think he is the most important person on the planet.

I don't think he is infallible and as I said, I don't agree with him on everything. But he is the closest thing to my real-life hero.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
