    The reason for me idolizing Khan is because he was a great leader, among other small things.
    Well, one in the same IMO.

    But I can understand the reasoning behind that.

    But I am curious about your addition of one of the biggest mass murderers in the history of the world, so explain yourself.





    I'll give my top 3. I look up/try to live by these guys' examples:

    Bruce Lee
    Henry David Thoreau
    Gandhi

    Let just say people that impress me in an assortment of ways:

    Steve Nash (fellow Canuck) comes to mind.......he lives a full life, maximizes his abilities, looks to make the world a better place, is very charitable, and is definitely a class act.

    But I look-up too, idolize my grandfather, my other grandfather Ronald Simpkins(look him up).

    Now for some controversial people.

    Genghis Khan
    Brett Favre
    Ronald Reagan

    Others
    Myles Kennedy
    Me
    Galileo
    Johannes Kepler
    Da Vinci
    Definitely some great ones there, interesting choice with Kepler. I like it. :thumb:

    Got a few myself, don't think of them as idols though, more like great inspirations. Anyway, the Oracle of Omaha is definitely one, he's done some great things and I admire the steps he's taken within philanthropy.

    Helen Keller is definitely another.
