    I'd go for Alexander the Great. What a hero.

    Kinda trumps your hero, because my hero was your hero's hero. Hahahaha.

    I also have a lot of respect for Genghis Khan. Achieved the same as Alexander but in reverse.

    But to hold the line anyway.

    Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington, Viscount of Talavera, Duke of Vittoria, Count of Ciudad Rodrigo and Commander-in-Chief of all of His Britannic Majesty's Forces in the Peninsular, is my military hero. As for actual heroic deeds, I'd say my username, Henry V.

    Henry the V would be my British hero.

    totally agree.....or Dave lister, he taught me so much!!
    When I was a child
    I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown,
    The dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb...

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    looks like this will be a popular thread. For once i did something that was popular. I think if this becomes popular i might just have a heart attack. And that deserves a Root Beer (i am too young to have a beer).

    I'm my own hero.

    Well, if I must. Napoleon Buonoparte ranks highly, as does Alexander. Augustus I respect more than Julius. Several others as well - Sertorius in Spain was amusing, Aetius, Belisarius - I could go on and on.

    Of course, we're delighted you're here.

    (Perhaps you will notice that one post or thread is far, far better than a dozen space fillers. Sometimes, fewer is truly better. Start threads you way you would approach a beautiful woman; thoughtfully and with the desire for a full measure of success. )

    If I was smart, I would have a witty punchline in this sig that would make everyone ROTFL.

    Shh... Robert Bruce was more English than Scottish...

    Still, got to love that occasion when he went into single combat with an English knight, and did some complex flipping about on his horse to win.
