Idol Worship

Who is your hero?
Putting aside any direct relations, which one person do you really admire?
Jeremy Clarkson dampens my gusset and I have a great deal of respect for the bloke in the local town who founded 5 museums in the last 20 years. However, my personal hero is the inventor of the pneumatic tyre, John Dunlop.
Your turn ...

Re: Idol Worship

Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba an old man who made a martial art were an 80 year old man could throw young ruffins about like rag dolls with no effort.
What is significant is the art does all this and doesn't normally injury anyone which is a real achievement in fact in many place were its practiced if you dont feel happy when you have been thrown about you arnt doing it right

Re: Idol Worship

I'd have to confess to a penchant for Mr Clarkson too - whether I could describe him as a hero or not would be questionable though. I'll have to have a proper think about this one!
