Who is history's greatest badass, and why? by Ian Murphy

Answer by Ian Murphy:

My personal vote would go to Pablo Escobar, the first cocaine billionaire.


 He didn't take shit from anyone, least of all the U.S. government. There is a famous shot of him standing with his son outside the gates of the White House; this was when he was #1 on the FBI's most wanted list, and America was chasing him hard.


 The Colombian government tried to charge him and extradite him to the U.S. What did Pablo do? He surrounded the court building with tanks, executed the supreme justices, and burnt the building to the ground. Dunno about you, but I'd say that's pretty badass man.
