    Alexander the great was a badass. The more you learn about Richard the Lionheart the less impressive he becomes. He was certainly a tough guy, but he wasn't nearly a great as his hype.

    I will say that Richard was supossedly unhorsed in single combat only once in his life. Who managed to knock the lionheart on his ass? William Marshal.

    On the discussion of the origins of "****", my ancient greek professor, who was a serious linguist (our questions about greek words regularly were answered with examples from latin, old german, anglo saxon, sandskrit, and a discussion of the proto-indo-european origins of the word), favored something close to this hypothesis (quoted from wikipedia):

    "The word has probable cognates in other Germanic languages, such as German ficken (to ****); Dutch fokken (to breed, to strike, to beget); dialectal Norwegian fukka (to copulate), and dialectal Swedish fokka (to strike, to copulate) and fock (penis).[1] This points to a possible etymology where Common Germanic fuk– comes from an Indo-European root meaning "to strike", cognate with non-Germanic words such as Latin pugnus "fist".[1] By reverse application of Grimm's law, this hypothetical root has the form *pug–"

    I dig this line, as it suggests men have been walking around saying "I'd hit that!" for thousands of years.

    Charlemagne was born in Herstall = Belgique Plus probably spoke a Frankonian dialect an antecendent language of Dutch or Vlamse.

    In the British army claymore means a highland broadsword (or the anti personnel mine with front toward enemy on it).

    Also, the origin of the middle finger predates the UK 'Bowfingers' gesture, because people in ancient rome were flipping each other the bird.
    It's related to the Irish Feck and German Ficke though isn't it? So before the German and English languages split from the tree.

    Okay, so we can't choose guys like Zaraki Kenpachi, but I think at least referencing this guy's similarity to another badass nearly as well known in the genre would be acceptable, yes?

    Undoubtedly a Fearsome Experience.

    Changing tack, slightly, and tipping a hat toward India. Take a look at the fightingest Man in the British Army, Hope Grant, later Maj Gen Sir James Hope Grant. Asserted to be an expert in every type of hand weapon. Notably also for an almost total lack of communication (not so unusual). Man Of Action rather than Man of Words. FM Sir Garnet Wolsely (another man of lunatic bravery and major architect of Cardwell's Reforms of the 19th C. British Army, said, "Everything I learned of war, I learned from Hope Grant".

    Brig John Nicholson. Absolutely Barking. Very much in the style of Robert Blair Mayne.

    gotta go - work calls.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    No. No, it wouldn't. Usually I'd be swearing at you by now, but I haven't been feeling well.

    get it?
    Would sacking Rome count as badassery? If so, I nominate Brennus. True, he was a Gaul long before the Franks conquered the pussified Romanized Gauls, but since most French probably have more Gaulic DNA than Frank, he might count.
