Peter Freuchen's life was anything but ordinary. Born in Denmark in 1886, Freuchen initially pursued a career in medicine before realizing that he craved something more exciting. He set off to explore Greenland, trading with the locals and going on hunting expeditions.

In this photo, Freuchen looks like the epitome of cool - and it's no wonder, considering that his jacket is made from the polar bear he killed on one of his adventures. As he continued to travel and explore, Freuchen found himself lecturing on Inuit culture and even getting buried in a blizzard, forced to dig himself out using a knife made from his own feces.

But despite the dangers and hardships he faced, Freuchen's spirit for adventure never wavered. He was the kind of guy who had countless stories to share and would make any dinner party unforgettable. With a life as thrilling as his, it's no wonder he left such an indelible mark on history.

Stevie Nicks back in the 1970s

In the 1970s, there was Stevie Nicks and then there was everyone else. Not only was she the witchy frontwoman of Fleetwood-Mac, but she had a kind of mystique that you don't just get from being a singer or an actress.

Nicks brought something new to rock music in an era full of overblown stadium rock bands running on pure testosterone. The Mac was one of the most successful groups of the era, but thanks to the feminity of Nicks and keyboardist/singer/songwriter Christine McVie the group brought more nuance to their music than many of the other platinum groups of the era.

Even through the group's ups and downs they've managed to mystify listeners with their sun soaked, pop rock goodness, and we've got Nicks to thank for leading the way.
