* In the fall of 1966 [[UsefulNotes/DeutscheBahn Deutsche Bundesbahn]] of WestGermany started one of the most influential and enduring [[https://www.google.de/search?q=alle+reden+vom+wetter+wir+nicht&client=ubuntu&hs=cOl&channel=fs&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi4nLXF96DMAhUCKcAKHXqbC1cQsAQIIQ&biw=1301&bih=673 ad campaigns]] in the history of German language ads. So enduring in fact, ThatOtherWiki has [[https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alle_reden_vom_Wetter._Wir_nicht. an article]] on it. The badass boast? "Alle reden vom Wetter (line break) Wir nicht." [[note]]Everybody talks about the weather - we don't[[/note]]. Six words, a CoolTrain and a railway had written a check it is still accused five decades later of not making good on whenever [[NeverLiveItDown something weather related throws a wrench into the smooth operation of trains]]. The slogan itself has become so iconic that there is a reasonable chance most Germans will know it (if not necessarily its origin) and variations have made its way into popular culture, e.g. the same slogan only with images of Marx, Engels and Lenin or a similar slogan "Alle reden von Deutschland, wir reden vom Wetter" [[note]]Everybody is talking about Germany (referring to the then current reunification), we are talking about the weather (referring to global warming, the Ozone hole and similar problems)[[/note]] by the [[UsefulNotes/PoliticiansAndPartiesOfGermany Greens]] in their (ultimately disastrous) 1990 election campaign. It is fair to say the slogan has become a meme in its own right in Germany.

** For informational purposes: Gabrielle Giffords was shot ''in the head'' on January 8th, 2011. She had recovered enough to travel to Washington D.C. from Arizona to vote on an important bill on ''August 1st, 2011''. That's ''seven months'' recovery time for being shot '''''in the head'''''. Doctor Rhee has ''more'' than earned his status as a {{Badass}} doctor. (It goes without saying that Gabby Giffords is also an unqualified badass.)

* Another American naval hero, Commodore [[AwesomeMcCoolname Oliver Hazard Perry]], was tasked with preventing the British from using the Great Lakes, specifically Lake Erie, as a route for troops and supplies to invade the United States during the War of 1812. Both sides constructed their fleets right there on different ends of the lakeshore, and though it was a close-fought thing, he and his men managed to capture the entire British lake fleet. His letter to General Harrison is one of the most {{Badass}} and [[LaconicWiki laconic]] after-action reports ever:
