* Corazon Amurao, the sole survivor of Richard Speck's murder spree. In court, at the trial of the man who raped and killed eight of her friends and put her through a night of unimaginable hell, she gave her testimony calmly and clearly - and then when she was asked the standard question of if she saw the murderer in court, she walked around the witness stand to where he was sitting, looked him straight in the face, pointed at him and said "This is the man."

They fought in World War 2, and earned their nickname because [[TheDreaded they were so successful and deadly, the Nazis compared them to witches.]] The only two female fighter aces were Night Witches. They flew combat, and dropped 23,000 tons of bombs. Their leader was Marina Raskova, Hero of the Soviet Union. She received the first state funeral of the war, and has a street in Moscow named after her. Another member, Nadia Popva, was shot down three times, and survived each time. Lydia [[RedBaron "The White Rose Of Stalingrad"]] Litvyak was the first female fighter pilot to shoot down an enemy plane, and do you know how many Nazis planes it took to shoot her down? [[RasputinianDeath Eight.]] Zhenya Rudneva fought at the front of the war, died valiantly while flying her 645 combat mission, and, after the Nazis bombed her beloved university, [[BadassBoast she swore revenge on the university's behalf, dedicating her first bomb to the cause of avenging the university.]]

* When the United States entered the first partial government shutdown since 1995, the Obama administration closed down parks and monuments, among others. But, did that stop [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/01/wwii-veterans-memorial_n_4023667.html?icid=maing-grid7%7Caim%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D384642 a group of World War II veterans]] from seeing the World War II memorial? Hell, no! They charged in, knocking down barricades meant to keep them out and ''visited their damn memorial''. Even more, a number of Senators, frustrated by the shutdown, even helped these old soldiers get in, distracting police as they did.

** This is far more Awesome than most people realize. One of the primary issues with prosthetics is the price. Because each one must be custom made, even cheap ones run into the thousands of dollars. This is especially bad for children, as they need new ones almost every year because they grow. This technology drops the price about fifty-fold.
