7 historical figures who were absurdly hard to kill

They were seven of the most famous (and notorious) men in history. And not one of them went gently into that good night. As a matter of fact, they all had some of the most hardcore awesome deaths ever recorded. Like Blackbeard (shown at right in his final battle). By the way, here in the Tarheel State there's a longstanding legend that Blackbeard's skull has been gilded in silver and turned into a goblet for use during initiation rituals at one of the UNC Chapel Hill frats. But anyway...

Cracked.com has documented seven historical figures who were absurdly hard to kill. If you don't mind a bit of profanity lacing the chronicles, it's quite a good read.

(Thanks again to Shane Thacker for a great find!)
