7 Most Bad Ass Men of History – Brace Yourself for #3!
We watch action movies, aspiring to be those bad ass men we see on the screen, but no script can touch these guys!
Simo Häyhä - He had the most recorded sniper kills in any major war, with 505 during the Winter War.
Jack Churchill - a British soldier who fought Nazis in WWII armed with a longbow and sword. His motto was "any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed." He recorded the final bow and arrow killing in WWII in 1940.
Hugh Glass - Attacked by a bear, he killed the bear with a pocket knife, and having been left by his friends convinced of his death, set his broken bones, cleaned his wounds with maggots and trekked 200 miles to safety.
Christopher Lee - Before he was an actor (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings), Christopher Lee was a special forces commando. When his character in Lord of the Rings was to be stabbed, he refused to say the line or scream, as the director had wanted. Peter Jackson recalled, "When I was shooting the stabbing shot with Christopher, as a director would I was explaining to him what he should do"... "And he says, 'Peter, have you ever heard the sound a man makes when he’s stabbed in the back?' And I said, 'Um, no.' And he says 'Well, I have, and I know what to do."
Brian Blessed - Actor who is the oldest man to reach the North Pole. Fully Trained cosmonaut. He has attempted to climb Mt. Everest 3 times. Blessed was a boxing champion in his youth and has sparred with the Dalai Lama.
Tycho Brahe - Um. He lost his nose in a duel over...math. He lived in a castle on an island. His best friend was a dwarf court jester who could see the future. His pet was a drunk elk. His pet drunk elk died falling drunkenly down a flight of stairs. He either died from murder (affair with the queen) or from holding in his pee too long.
