Tsutomu Yamaguchi

Hey, so Tsutomu Yamaguchi is cool. Both the luckiest and unluckiest man in the world, probably. This dude survived the blasts of both the Little Boy and Fat Man - the first in Hiroshima, then the second in Nagasaki. Thats's awesome.

Imagine - "oh man, nuclear war - better get out of here!"... and then retreating to the only place about to experience comparably-bad luck, Nagasaki. Also, imagine all of that happening - and then living long after the explosions, dying in 2010 of stomach cancer, at the ripe old age of 93.

Dude probably would've appreciated being alive more than anyone, ever.
