Well now I don't feel so bad to him after losing in the preliminary.

There has to be a catch here. Was the survey filled out mainly by emasculated, upperclass Limey teens?

Crap! I slept with Howie Mandell to get a judges vote.

I shan't use the term "cool" from this day forth.

Does that mean sharks have a whole week dedicated to him?

'Coolest Man in the World'? Not even the coolest royal in Europe. Frederik of Denmark graduated from their Frogman Corps training, the Danish equivalent of Navy SEALs. Could you picture a US head of state with Special Forces training?

Young good looking war vet with more money than god could spend and he is 3rd in line to the English crown.

Yep, I hate him.

I wonder if this pic captures that moment in every mans life where he realizes that in the end, any woman he ever dates or marries will eventually suck the life from him..

The list goes rapidly downhill.

1. Prince Harry, a goddamn prince (yes)
2. Robert Pattinson, a flavour-of-the-month actor from a tween movie (no)
3. Reggie Love, apparently the guy who carries Barry Obama's handkerchiefs (lolque?)
4. Dizzee Rascal, British rapper (I don't know enough about him to judge)
5. Jason Schwarzmann, actor (not familiar with, but looks too emo to be cool)
6. Usain Bolt (now this I can actually see)

And rounding out the list, four guys I've never heard of. Where's Jack Nicholson?

Can he aspire to be as cool as his Daddy?

Nope.

As far as I'm concerned, THIS (new window) is the coolest person in the world.

That's it. Over and done with. Do not argue with me, because you will lose.

(Yawn)

Give me a farkin break, and also a definition of "cool".

I have met some cool (by my definition) people in my life but these do not come close. Is the new Cool the Old Asshat, or did I miss something.

Coolest dude I ever met was a stranger in Springfield MO who not only spent an hour helping me change a tire in the rain, but asked me to help him drink a few bottles of his homebrew as we worked on it.

Then, as my battery had now went dead, he drove me 20 miles out of his way to get me to home. When I tried to give him some $ for his time and effort, he said "no way man, just pass it on".

THAT is the definition of a cool person.

Let's see ... in a world of plastic, talentless celebrities ...

An honest-to-God Prince who is a gun-totin hard-nosed soldier ... Yeah, he's pretty cool in my book, too.

/But he'll eventually turn evil. They always do.

Don't mess with Charlie. He will kick your ass.

Ok so did they completely ignore musicians aside from a drummer from a shiatty band?

I have to say, Wayne Static and Trent Reznor should be right on top of that list.

Naah. That just applies to ex-spouses.

welcome to 2010, time traveler! tell us, in your world, has Trent Reznor formed NIN yet, or is he still in the Exotic Birds?

Whatever polling method they used should never be used again. Not even to decide what colour socks to wear.

Is this Prince Charles' kid, or Hewlett's kid?

LesserEvil: Can he aspire to be as cool as his Daddy?


Now I read the gossip rags as avidly as anyone else, but the story behind that picture is just awful. Somebody was listening in on private conversations between Charles and Camilla before they married (tapped the phone lines or something), and then published them. Somebody should have had their head chopped off for that.

That's racist.

It's supposed to be your profile.
