I just e-mailed this to a friend, but I figure it warrants posting here too: via Michael May's Adventureblog, I see Ten reasons why John McClane is more bad-ass than Optimus Prime.
Well, duh. I think the real question is, who's more bad-ass: John McClane or Jack Bauer? For instance, John McClane never has to torture anybody, and while he might be racing against time, he never seems all angsty about it the way Bauer does -- I mean, Bauer's always barking to somebody about how "he's running out of time", whereas McClane just keeps chuggin' along, making one wisecrack after another.
How about you all, folks? Terrorists are gonna do some really bad stuff, so who do you want after them: McClane or Bauer?
