    Someone living now or in your lifetime. Who have you said to yourself that you thanked God that you lived at the same time as them to see it happen?

    Maybe not so much inspired but who has lived in your lifetime that has put you in awe?

    I am in awe that a below average prick like Howard Stern can become a billionaire.

    lance Armstrong. I was going through chemo right around the time he was getting press for beating cancer in the early 00's. He genuinely inspired me. Even though he turned out to be a cheat it doesn't change the fact that at one point in my life I truly looked up to him.

    My first thought was nobody but you mentioned Armstrong. He is an inspiration.
