* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Hilleman Maurice Hilleman.]] He saved five hundred million lives. As with Borlaug above, see Wiki/TheOtherWiki for a full account of Hilleman's awesomeness.

* Criss Angel exposed Jim Callahan and Uri Geller at the same time with one little envelope, gives a picture perfect TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, and almost clobbers Callahan.
** P.S. In case you're wondering, what was in the envelope was a card with "9/11" written on it, because in the event that anyone there did prove psychic enough to know what was in the envelope the question would remain: why didn't they put it to good use and do things like warn us about 9/11 on 9/10?

* In 2012, artist Kogoro Kurata and roboticist Wataru Yoshizaki created the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuratas Kuratas]], a real-life HumongousMecha. In 2015, American company [=MegaBots=] created their own Humongous Mecha, the Mark II, and introduced it to the world in style by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVJTGLL2SnI challenging the Kuratas to a duel]]. Kurata's reply? "'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u8mheM2Hrg WE ACCEPT]].'''" Are we on our way to [[{{Defictionalization}} defictionalizing]] ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam''?!

* Firefighting. This is a career where you are willingly diving into other people's burning buildings, save their lives and whatever they can, ''and then do it again the next day if need be.'' This is a career that, by its nature, requires a human to utterly rewire their fight or flight response in order to just do their jobs, in order to save complete strangers for no reward.
** If your child says "I want to be a hero", tell her to be, not a police officer or a soldier, but a firefighter.

*** TFX didn't die, though. In fact it enjoyed a long and revered stint as the F-111 "Aardvark" fighter-bomber for the US Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force, remembered for being one of the best tactical ground-attack aircraft ever to see service.
