Off the back of Yes Snowboard's Good Dude of History range, I pose a question!

Who do you rate as the "coolest" dude ever! I raised this question on another forum and with my colleagues at work.

So what do you think?

My vote is for Steve McQueen. Timeless style and a rebel at heart!

Since Jesus was brought up, I have two questions:

1.  Why can't two men marry and adopt?  After all, Jesus had two fathers.
2.  If we're all God's children, what's so special about Jesus?  He wasn't the first son and wasn't the last.

I'm here for the points and if you're reading this, it means I just got one more!

1. Because they cannot procreate, long story short, the bible says having sex means to have children

2. Jesus was special, because he gave his life for us so that we may one day go to heaven

I am just answering your questions, as i went to a catholic school. Big smile

Oh my lord! In two posts this thread has progressed downhill very fast!

It was supposed to be a lighthearted post about peoples impressions of our "idols" but alas it has been hijacked.

You sure you're not Green's Senator Bob Brown?

Didn't want to make this thread religious, but had to post those questions.  My vote would have to be for Clint Eastwood in the High Plains Drifter.  McQueen was good and all, but can't hold a candle to Clint in that role.  That or Chuck Norris.  He's just bad ass.

Coolest dude on the internet is Chuck Norris.

If Chuck Norris has $5 and you have $5, Chuck Norris has more money.

does it have to be a real person? if it can be a fictional character id say the main guy (forgot his name) from the movie Taken.

he's pretty much a James Bond, but an average joe james bond that is equally, if not more badass

Ed Headrick

Disc Golf inventor Ed Hedrick not only provided many improvements to a sport destined to grow and find its way, he also shaped disc golf in countless ways. Creating the most popular professional model Frisbee with its band of raised ridges called the Rings of Headrick in 1964, he continued to push the limits with never-seen passion by developing the first pole with a chain basket or "hole" similar to traditional golf.

Creating a sport he believed everyone could play, he designed the first disc course in Pasadena. Early games used targets of trees, trash cans, light poles, chicken wire baskets and pipes. The game was formalized by Heidrick's first Disc Pole Hole catching devise, consisting of 10 chains hanging in a parabolic shape over an upward opening basket, US Patent 4,039,189, issued 1975.

I know I have already said Jesus, but I want to add George Lucas (creator of Star Wars and Indiana Jones), Dr. Naismith (inventor of basketball), the inventor of the combustion engine, and George Washington.
