Who is the "coolest" guy alive? The "coolest" guy of the last 50 years?

So, who do you think the coolest guy alive is?

The coolest guy of the last 50 years?

Why?

Though there are many good candidates, I'm going to have to go with Clint Eastwood. Too many excellent movies playing the gritty gunslinger that's always one-up on his opponents.

Steve McQueen. Cause he just didn't do it in the movies.

Same with James Garner and Paul Newman.

For me, probably George Carlin. Not only was he a great comedian but he was also a very deep thinker...and I think he pretty much had everybody figured out.

While we're speculating, who's the cat that won't cop out when there's danger all about?

Paul Newman. Eddie Van Halen. Adam Stelzner (the guy who designed the MSL landing system).

Part II could be a dead person of the last 50 years.

I think he may have the best story and one of the biggest achievements, and a humble all around great guy but Neil wasnt "cool."

Allan Shepherd...hitting a golf ball on the moon, now thats cool.

Because, he is the most interesting man in the world (according to a beer company, so it must be true)
