Fidel Castro: 1926 - 2016
About fifteen years ago, I read an anecdote about Fidel Castro's early life. I have no idea whether the story is true or not; nothing turned up on any of the web searches I did. Anyway, the story went like this:
One day during elementary school, Fidel Castro got into an argument with the school bully. The bully challenged him to a fight after school. Fidel took him up on the challenge. The bully trounced Castro; beat the living shit out of him. The next day, Castro walked up to the bully and challenged him to a rematch. The bully again pounded the fuck out of Fidel Castro.
This exact same scenario happened again and again, day after day, month after month. Castro never won any of these fights; got his ass kicked every time. But by the end of the school year, the bully was scared shitless of him.
