    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.

    Impossible question. To many variables. Over fifty years, pick one.

    He's a guy who's back home from Iraq or Afghanistan.Might still be there. Maybe somebody knows his name.

    B.O. - he sends a thrill up my leg and stopped the rise of the oceans so the celebrities' beach houses won't flood! ( smokes Kools, too)

    Me.

    Why? Because I am the judge of what is cool.

    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.

    He's not alive but the coolest guy of the last 50 years has to be Neil Armstrong.

    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).

    Alive is part I

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