Sure, you are illiterate when identifying your customers, but it's a noble sacrifice for providing a regimented pep in our step with equal speed. We salute you.

5. The technician that processes movies into 3D.

This person just took your viewing experience, literally, to the next dimension – and doesn't even ask for a cut when a bajillion more dollars roll in as a result of their efforts. How humble!

7. Yoga instructors.

Solely for making it acceptable to wear the next best thing to pajama pants in public, while simultaneously making dudes weak in the knees upon sight. Praise you for your efforts and their subsequent impact.

8. Subway conductors.

Giving our lives to these fine people while traveling at unreasonable speeds with no ability to communicate with the outside world. Thank you for your protection at such vulnerable times!

10. The party playlist creator.

A person with advanced enough tastes to cater to casual partygoers and hardcore snobs, while letting it rip on autopilot so they can jet off to enjoy themselves. THAT'S talent.

How about a new pack of heroes to appreciate? Check out The Awesomes on Hulu starting August 1st.
