          It also says toughest, and Cartman was beaten up by Wendy Testaburger.

          Wendy has shown herself to be a fairly decent fighter, beating up Cartman after he repeatedly made jokes about Breast Cancer in "Breast Cancer Show Ever". Although Cartman does manage to get a few hits in, Wendy turns the tide of the fight after ramming Cartman's face into a metal pole, multiple times, leaving Cartman lying in a pool of his own blood. The significance of this is debatable as Cartman has been shown to lose the majority of fights he gets in.

      Anyone who's ever worked as a bodyguard for him would have a less flattering estimation of him as just about anyone who's worked on a movie set with him as would just about anyone who's known him in any capacity. Let's just say, he had it coming to him with what Gene LeBell did to him.

      Of all the action stars, he may have the most real ability. He's faster now, at 62 than when he was in his 30's.

      The problem is, skill is independent of what you are like as a human being.

      He's mean to fellow actors. The stories are legion.

      But again, He's got serious skills.

    And of course Mr nice guy, Chuck Norris

      As for Weaver,
      Yeah that was an iconic moment for me too... Strong women are so
      much more attractive. I mean, not that they need to come home from
      their job at the steel mill, spit chewin' tabacco in their spittin' can, and
      challenge me to an arm wrestling contest... But the whole helpless
      damsel in constant distress thing, who really wants a woman who can't
      take care of her own swamp monsters!?

      As for Riddick,
      You're still talking about "a geek with a weakness for adventure..."
      Vin Diesel plays Dungeons & Dragons. And Pathfinder... A lot.

          I did have a woman rudely tell me she could open her own damn door.

          I've always held doors open for anybody within range of where it would be impolite -IMO-
          to just let the door close on them.

      Do you mean Sigourney Weaver? Are you talking about Aliens? Adrienne Barbeau was the woman in Swamp Thing. Do you mean when Sigourney Weaver got inside that "Fork lift" suit, and slapped that alien yelling.."Get away from her, you bitch!" ?

        Okay. It was Swamp Thing - and I didn't realize that it was Adrienne. I thought it was just a younger Sigourney. Of Course, Sigourney is also one mean lean badass - but It was Swamp Thing that I first saw a real fight scene with a woman that didn't crumble under fear. I hooted and hollered when she picked up that tank and beaned that creature. It was the first time I'd seen an authentic reaction from a woman in a horror movie. Sigourney was the second. Horror movies got a very solid improvement from these two women.

        As far as tough guys.............I know what they are. My father is one. Intelligent, fit (not show muscles, but very in shape and knows how to fight), and soft spoken until someone gives him or his family crap. He's the Harrison Ford type of tough guy. He's lost a little of his muscle. He is 90 after all, but he wasn't anyone the guys in town wanted to mess with when I was growing up. A few did want to emulate him, though.

        I love tough men -- but I like the ones that can sit down and talk science and head out into the field with me when there's nobody around to have to keep in line. LOL.
