For its impact upon Mankind and its sheer life values and wisdom and in terms of its total sales, there has been no book at all to match 'The Holy Bible' in a worldwide sense.… In terms of fictional works, the answer would depend upon what type of book. For romance novels, with out a doubt, "Princess Bride" is the greatest book. For fantasy, the 'Harry Potter' series. For mystery, Nancy Drew ... and so on. For children's fairytale books, it could be any of quite some number. Certainly in terms of popularity, perhaps, Cinderella, Snow White, or even 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'!
Usain Bolt of Jamaica is the greatest "short" sprinter of all time after shattering the world records in the 100m and 200m dashes. He has broken the 100m record 3 times. 9.72 …in May of 2008, 9.69 in August of 2008 and 9.58 in August of 2009. He has broken the 200m record twice 19.30 in August of 2008 and 19.19 in August of 2009. He is the only man to win Olympic gold while setting world records in both sprints at the same Olympics. He's the first man to run under 9.70 and 9.60 in the 100m dash, and the only person to break 19.30 in the 200m dash with his world record performance of 19.19. Usain Bolt is the World Junior Record holder in the 200m dash with a time of 19.97. Bolt is the modern version of Tommie Smith, a combination of abnormal stride length at 6'5 and the stride frequency of a much shorter world class sprinter. Bolt is able to accelerate faster than his competition and his top end speed is unmatched, thus causing him to be the most dominant sprinter of all time. His nearest rival, Tyson Gay is arguable the 2nd greatest sprinter of all time with personal records of 9.69 for 100m and 19.41 a world record for the straight 200m, and a natural 200m personal best of 19.58. Gay has lost to Bolt in the 2009 World Championship 100m final when Bolt set the current world record of 9.58, Gay was a distant 2nd in 9.70, the 3rd fastest time of all time and just .01 off the previous world record set by Bolt in 2008 in the Summer Olympics in Bejing, China. Michael Johnson is the greatest long sprinter ever, during his career he held the 200m and 400m world record, while also holding the seldom ran 300m world record. Using a non-traditional running style Michael was a unique blend of world class speed and world class speed endurance. He frequently ran under 20 seconds in 200m dashes while his competition found it difficult to break 20 seconds. Michael was known in the 200 for running an extremely aggressive turn and because of his 400m speed endurance, he decelerated at a much slower rate than his competitors, which made him very difficult to beat for 200m. In 1996 Michael broke the 200m world record twice, first in the Olympic Trials 200m final, Michael ran 19.66 to best Pietro Minnea's former world record of 19.72. In the semi finals of the Olympic Trials, Michael ran 19.70 but it was over the allowable 2.0 mps wind for record purposes. Later in 1996 in the Olympic Games 200m final, Michael ran a 200m dash for the ages in which he split 10.12 oin his first 100m and 9.20 in his second for a world record time of 19.32, breaking his previous world record by .34 seconds, the largest drop in the 200m dash world record since its been recorded. Michael won 2 world championship gold medals, 1991 and 1995, 1 Olympic Gold medal 1996.The 400m was Michael's best event. H's run under 44 seconds more often than any other man before or after him. He won 2 Olympic Gold medals in 1996 and 2000, he's won 4 world championships 1993, 1995,1997 and 1999. He is the current world record holder in the 400m dash in 43.18. He was the most dominant 400 meter runner ever, frequently championship finals by nearly a second ahead of his competition. His greatest achievements on the track are in 1995 and in 1996 in which he won both the 200m and 400m world titles and Olympic titles, no one in the history of track and field can claim to have placed in both events in a major championship let alone won them both in the sports major championship meets. Michael Johnson will forever be known as the standard bearer for long sprinting.
Let's stay in reality for this answer, because no, Randy Orton is not a realistic answer. The question is "Who is the greatest wrestler of ALL TIME?". So to answer this questi…on you should consider things like accomplishments, Championships held, experience, and basically this person should have a very impresive resume. So, with all that being said... It's pretty obvious that Chris Jericho is the best wrestler of all time! Now hear me out, this is the reason why he is the greatest. First of all he has been wrestling for 20 years and his wrestling talent is amazing. His mic skills are the best in the business. He has wrestling experience internationally in Japan, Mexico, Canada, Germany, and of course in USA. Watch some old Jericho matches from Japan. They will be the best you've ever seen. In addition to international wrestling, Jericho has wrestled successfully in SMW, ECW, WCW, and WWE. Jericho was trained in the greatest place to be trained, "The Hart Dungeon". I like Jericho because he's a mixed bag. He has great mat skills, high flying risk taking style, great mic skills, just great everything. He always impresses me and I've never have seen a bad Jericho match. Look at his accomplishments, the first ever Undisputed World champ, WWE champ, World heavyweight champ, 9 time Intercontinental champ (more than anyone else), WCW TV champ, Cruiserweight champ, ECW TV Champ, Tag champ, Hardcore champ, European champ, and titles in Japan and lots more. Jericho has wrestled all the greats, legends, and young talent. Jericho has main evented WrestleMania. Among some of the great Jericho has wrestled are Shawn michaels, Undertaker, Kurt angle, Hulk hogan, Ric Flair, Eddie Guerreo, HHH, Ricky Steamboat, and Mick Foley to name a few. So all that and a lot of stuff I'm forgetting is the reason why Chris Jericho is the best wrestler of all time!
This one I don't even know and how would you it counts on the opinion , not scientific facts or anything like that. I mean really make a hard riddle or something.
I'm gray and as dull as can be,and as hard as a rock. What am I?
It depends on perspective. There are many opinions so there cannot be a true answer. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------…----------- The only invention that could be argued as the single "greatest" of all time are the very first tools that humans created; simple axes and knives that were forged from shards of stone. This invention established the beginning of all of humanity's creations; therefore, all concurrent inventions were derived from it . It is the only invention that can be considered separate from all others; therefore, the only invention that can be argued to be "greater than" without implementing opinion. .
