Welcome to CL’s annual catalog of impotence: the 11 Least Influential. You’ll meet folks who tried to achieve an ambitious goal, but fell short (which happens to be the case with little Sebastian here); people who’ve devoted themselves to a personal mission in near-total obscurity; and ordinary Joes who can’t get anyone to pay attention to them.

Caroline has a great spread.

Her home, Decimal Place Farm, is a gently rolling 18-acre tract in Clayton County. Even though it's close to I-285 and is actually under the take-off path of two Hartsfield-Jackson runways, it feels like the country.

Caroline shares her home with 22 other adult female saanen dairy goats and Mary Rigdon, a goat farmer. The herd is small enough that it subsists...

"Ever since I jumped out of that tree, I've probably covered about 50 graffiti tags."

Bowman is talking about June 29, when he jumped out of a tree in the dead of night to confront two young men spray-painting graffiti near the Krog Street tunnel in Cabbagetown. The verbal confrontation became physical, and Bowman was charged with disorderly conduct.

Since the incident, Bowman has...

Deisha Oliver's cello and bow aren't special by objective standards.

"My instrument is not the best," she says. "It's low-end, intermediate."

They're nevertheless special to her.

She got them in college, when she saved up for both even before she had her first car.

Oliver played in several bands, as well as the Terre Haute Symphony in Indiana. But in recent years, she set her instrument...

Jason Pye tries to live his life in accordance with his libertarian ideals. He is a devotee of author and philosopher Ayn Rand, whose work promotes laissez-faire capitalism and individualism.

"I view government as something that should play a minimal role in our lives."

He avoids public transportation "as a point of principle."

Rex Smith is fed up with bitchassness.

He's so fed up, in fact, the 25-year-old Northside Drive resident has taken to wearing a t-shirt that asks bitchasses to refrain from bitchassness in his presence.

"A bitchass is like a hater," he explains. "A woman hating on you because you're talking to other women. Someone hating on you for your style or because they don't fit in. Someone you talk...

Who are the most influential people on Earth?

George W. Bush could, with the push of a button, flatten any city on Earth.

Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi could slow output from his kingdom's oil fields and plunge the world into another Great Depression.

Together, Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers could command a screaming tween army of millions mighty enough to overthrow the U.S. government...

Despite acting as the "inside man" during the infamous bank heist, Allen was little more than a footnote in the coverage.
