It'd be interesting to see who people look up to.

I look up to Giorgio A. Tsoukalos. I wish I could do a PhD under his supervision.

I also look up to my 2004 and 2005 High School Classical Studies, and Computing, teachers.

I usually get to the same height, then look at them.

Are we constrained to the living?


Freeman Dyson

farmers, and the everyday working folks who keep the machinery of civilization running.

if you'll grant me one from fiction - "Uncle Hub", the character portrayed by Robert Duval in "Secondhand Lions". He reminds me of some WW2 vets I knew.

So I have to ask, why do you look up to the ancient aliens guy?

Richard Feynman is my hero. Smart dude with broad interests, penetrating insight, a good heart, a sense of humour and no time for bull****.

:rofl: I actually thought this haha

All of my life I never understood the whole role model thing or why people would look up to another person, but it seems I have developed a deep appreciation for Neil de Grasse Tyson. As I am often discouraged these days, I listen to a lot of his speeches and somehow find hope within them. I also admire Astronuc which is odd because I do not hunt down his posts like Neil de Grasse Tyson's videos XD but I appreciate his posts whenever I come across them...maybe it has something to do with his username, beard, and use of the word "one."

I really wish that everyone could see the truth about Gandhi. He wasn't the great saint that he is made out to be.

I look up to my mom, Fermi, and Alan Turing.
I also admire the person who discovered coffee.

So I have to ask, why do you look up to the ancient aliens guy?
I'm glad someone finally pointed that out. To add on why would he want to work on a Phd under him?
