You're not cool.

You probably think you're a pretty well-rounded person, with a diverse skill set. You're an expert in whatever it is you do for work, but you have hobbies and interests. You sing pretty well, maybe you play the guitar. Maybe you draw, or used to have a weird job, or picked up some odd skills when you were in the Navy, or speak Japanese.

I give you Samuel F. Cody: cowboy, jockey, trick rider, playwright, actor, expert marksman, Buffalo Bill impersonator, man-carrying kite inventor, fake Colonel, aviation engineer and Britain's first dirigible pilot.

CVs had to be a lot longer in those days, I tell you what.

I call Renaissane Man tennis!

I'll see your cowboy-showman-inventor-pilot, and raise you a moviemaker-human-rights-watchdog-novelist-TV-personality-expatriate-Russian-nobility-rookie-leader of the Canada Liberal Party, Michael Ignatieff.
