Welcome to my Wall of Heroes. This is where I will post things about people that have influenced my life.

First, Mike Melvill, pilot of SpaceShipOne, for being the first private citizen astronaut.

The two old dudes in the balcony on the Muppet Show. They warped shaped my childhood.

The Monkey Chow guy. Way to take one for the team.

London's most famous superhero, the Angle-grinder Man and his retired sidekick Deadleg, the bare-knuckle boxing champion dwarf. Now that's badass…

It's been a long time since I added to this page, but these guys deserve recognition: a bunch of professionals that do what their city won't, Portland Anarchist Road Care.

Okay this judge has to be on my list: U.S. District Court Judge Carlos Murguia. In 2016 Lawrence John Ripple, 70, walked into a bank in Kansas City and handed a note to the teller instructing them to give him money as he was robbing the joint. Ripple then hangs out in the lobby for the cops to come and get him because—get this—he said going to prison would be better than going home to his wife. So what does Judge Murguia sentence him to? House arrest. Stone cold sadistic bastard. (OK, so more serious, Ripple had some depression and other issues and was remorseful, but I'll be damned if this isn't hilarious.)

In June 2017, Rachel Borch, 21, was jogging when attacked by a rabid raccoon. So what does she do? She lures the raccoon to bite her on her hand and then drowns the f!?cker in a puddle. For a chick, Borch has some seriously shiny titanium balls.
