Guys, from Joan of Arc to Zhukov, from Martin Luther King to Benazir Bhutto, heroes come in all shapes and sizes and they can be real or imaginary.

Who inspires you? Who do you think really qualifies for the title of hero?

Ok, my hero is Mary Magdalene. Why? Cos she got denounced by the mullahs of her time, she had some mental issues also cos of all the pressure she was under, she came to know God himself, and she died fighting for what she believed in Ephesues. She went from being a outcast cos of her sexuality- to teacher, and she wrote a gospel also. So she is a truly holy person.

Also I love Hypatia of Alexandria cos she was a scientist, apostate, free thinker- again, she got trashed by the mullahs of her time.

Both Mary and Hypatia inspire me and I think I will die like them also, torn apart by the mob. I wud love to preach, just like what they done.

Do people choose heroes that resemble them or support what they believe in?

You know, sometimes and stuff, we choose heroes who are bad, but they got some quality we admire. Like me, me first hero was this notorious person and she was terrible actually.

If you are talking about someone in public life, then I'd have to say Evo Morales, president of Bolivia. I respect him more than any other politician I can think of.

So he must be more than just a politician?

Come to think of it....don't have one.

Plenty of people I respect for what they have accomplished. But, none of them I can say are my personal hero.

My one is Salman Rushdy. If I spelled his name correctly...

Plus Spartacus...

My antihero is V. V. Putin. He is our the King of Darkness.

I think almost anyone who has read me even briefly knows the situation. However, I do defend me sect not on a religious basis but on humanitarian grounds as a persecuted minority.

I am fairly well travelled but you are probably more so, and some of my travels were wasted on me as a youth or child.

I have studied a lot of languages but I am fluent in less than some forum members. But languages are a particular passion of mine.

As for knowing it all-I am guilty of knowing a lot, but you haven't met my father! lol. My nicknames at school were dictionary and encylopedia..which i tried very hard to take as a compliment, even though they probably weren't! I am no expert on the English language and never professed to be, but I am a teacher.

And Judaism is so rich in lore, I could never become an expert on it. The babylonian Talmud takes 7 years of daily reading alone to finish! And I am becoming a doctor, a profession where it is guaranteed you can never know it all(but one must at least try.)

My personal hero is a personal friend of mine, who I sponsored up Mount Everest twice.

He is a one armed mountaineer, tour bus driver fluent in Japanese and has a black belt in various martial arts. Have a read of his story, it is pretty impressive:

Yeah and he is a really cool guy too. If i ever make a ton of money, I wil sponsor him up K2. Everytime I have to resort to my walking stick and grumble about my knees, I think of him climbing Everest with one arm.

Jumping out of aviation fire trucks onto cement every day, often with full firefighting gear and 18kg of breathing apparatus strapped to my back. Totally destroyed them. The trucks, after a bunch of us got military pensions, have been redesigned.

Potty, if your husband is happy, then I would be more than happy for you to join me on my next venture into the bush - but please be aware, there will be no 5 Star treatment or comforts, but you will be in a very safe pair of hands apart from when washing or doing other private things behind the nearest rock! ;)

This guy is my type of hero, just got stuck in to help people and never looked for praise and in fact shunned it . I was priviledged to shake his hand after the event. It was a severe earthquake in my home town in Christchurch where I lost my friend of 20 years duration
