Badass of the week

When you’re struggling with searing insomnia and have worked 49 days without a break, finding websites like this is a lifesaver. My favourites are Marie Curie:

1903 was a pretty sweet year for Madame Curie – she was awarded her Ph.D. and also the Nobel Prize – which is probably a combination of awards that most people don’t generally achieve in the same calendar year. I guess that’s what you call a pretty solid thesis paper.

And of course Grandmaster Imi:

Imi Lichtenfeld was not only an accomplished athlete, he came up with one of the most ripshit-badass martial arts styles in the world, Krav Maga, which should be Hebrew for “I’m going to fuck you up so bad your grandsons are gonna be born without ballsacks.”
