This is what a badass looks like:

Lone Nepali Soldier Defends Potential Rape Victim Against Forty Men

Kills 3, injures 8, drives the rest away.  Oh, and the 40 robbers were armed with knives, swords, and guns.  All that Bishnu Shrestha was armed with was a kukri, a clear moral purpose, and a sack of stones the size of Gibraltar.  Bishnu Shrestha gets a 999 milliBronson rating.  The only reason he doesn’t get a full Bronson is because, well, there’s only one Charles Bronson.  Although I must say, this guy almost rates a full Bronson.

Below is a picture of a kukri.  No picture of Shrestha’s mighty testicles was available, due to size constraints of the blog format.

No arms? So what. He can still cap your ass.

Being born without arms is no impediment to learning how to load and shoot a Colt .45.  Best line in the video?

“If they want to come and screw with the U.S., come on.”

Gallery of the Intrepid – This is why we will eventually win.

The U.S. military can do things like this.  Our cave-dwelling enemies cannot.  We will win.

Watch especially at around 2:10.  The pilot is hovering at below ground level of rising terrain.  He perches the helicopter on the two rear wheels and lays the ramp right on the terraced ground.  Astonishing.  No, actually, just routine for these guys.

Taking note of the start of another season of America’s Pastime, we present the story of Tony Conigliaro.

“Tony C.”, as he was called, was an outfielder for the Boston Red Sox in the 1960’s.  During his sophomore season, he led the league in home runs and was selected for the All-Star Game.

During a game against the California Angels on August 18, 1967, Conigliaro was at the plate when he was struck by a fastball thrown by Angels pitcher Jack Hamilton.  The pitch struck him just below his left eye, fracturing his cheekbone, dislocating his jaw, and severely damaging his left retina.  Doctors said that the pitch came within an inch or so of killing him.

Only a year and a half later, he made a remarkable return to the big leagues, hitting 20 homers with 82 RBI in 141 games, and earning Comeback Player of the Year.  His vision continued to deteriorate however, and he was forced to retire only a few years later.

Conigliaro suffered a heart attack in 1982, and remained in a coma until his death 8 years later at the young age of 45.

Baseball fans will remember this tough, dedicated man and his miraculous comeback.
