Wow.  He even looks like the guy in the Dos Equis commerical.  I'd say in the game of life, this guy has unlocked all the achievements

I still say Brian May is the most interesting man in the world.

1) Hand-built a guitar from spare parts at 14
2) Entertained millions all over the world with one of the most successful bands in history
3) Returned to school finish his Ph.D, becoming a Doctor of Astrophysics
4) Co-wrote a book about the Big Bang
5) Became a University Chancellor, succeeding a Prime Minister's wife
6) Became an expert on stereoscopic photography purely for the hell of it
7) Runs a sanctuary for wild badgers in his backyard

Eat your heart out, Buckaroo Banzai.

Yeah but what does he drink?  Dos Equis would be TOO easy since the guy is from Mexico. He looks like a Guinness man.

Cornejo seems like an interesting guy, but his sculptures seem a little on the cheesy side. And, via a link in the article, I found out something I didn't know about his sensei, karate legend Ed Parker:


In mid 1990, Ed Parker told Will Tracy he had five requirements for a disciple to take his place:

He (not a female) had to have at least a bachlors degree in sociology, psychology or history:He had to be under 30 years of age:He had to be extreme competent in all styles of Kenpo, and at least three other martial arts styles:He had to be as good a writer as Ed Parker:He had to be LDS (Mormon):
 Christ, what an asshole.

And I heard a podcast interview of the actor from the Dos Equis commercials, he's quite possible the most bland and dull man in the world.

According to Montserrat Caballé Freddie could of been a great opera singer and if he hadn't got sick he would of tried his voice at it.

As he has risen through the ranks to become one of the most-decorated Kenpo Karate students in history, he has trained literally thousands of students and rarely asks for financial compensation.

Hold on a sec -- you mean to tell me that, somewhere out there, there are literally thousands of Mexican karate fighters? Why hasn't there been a movie made about this karate-chopping, crimefighting gang yet?

//they've pretty much got to be crime fighters, right?

Never mind, this appears to have happened in the US.  Nobody cares about American karate fighters unless they're kids or turtles.

ElLoco: There are those people that make me feel not nearly so impressed with myself or some of those around me.
This guy is one of them.


Every once in a while, as a confidence building exercise, I'll try to make myself sound as impressive as possible, while still being 100% true, not resorting to "bending" the truth whatsoever. You should try it; you'd be surprised at how impressive sounding even a mundane life can be. I did one for my grandfather a few years back, and as I discussed it with my dad and grandmother, I was *shocked* at how ridiculously awesome he was, and felt like a worthless shiat by comparison. Some highlights:

-Graduated Summa Cum Laude in 7 semesters with bachelors degrees in Structural Engineering, Chemistry, and Physics
-Followed that up by landing on Normandy beach on D-Day, and being awarded a Silver Star during the ensuing European Campaign (would have loved to hear the story behind it, but he refused to discuss it with anyone)
-Came home to start a contracting/building/engineering company, culminating in designing nuclear reactor facilities in Russia and other Eastern Bloc countries, for which he was awarded a half dozen patents
-Was some sort of high-ranking Mason (again, didn't talk about it)
-Scoutmaster/Survival school instructor for 20+ years
-Acclaimed amateur dirt-track racing champion for shiats and giggles

Nothing like a member of "the greatest generation" to make you feel like you're wasting your life.

Not mocking, but why would he be called sifu if he's a matter of a Japanese art? Regardless, awesome guy.

At your service.

As a professional mixed martial artist and a former Collegiate Judo Nationals Bronze Medalist, I'm here to mock his karate.

As a cowboy/pilot/surfer/accountant/biker/martial artist/blacksmith, I'm here to mock the claims that he's interesting.
 
2013-03-22 10:51:42 PM
Film and stage actor, poet, photographer, painter, musician. Fluent in 3 languages, functional in several more. Bob Anderson called him "the best swordsman I've ever trained." Even his childhood and his ex-wife are interesting. And by all accounts he's a good guy.

Viggo Mortensen is making us all look bad.
