View Full Version : 3 People From History...
You know the old question, you have to pick three people from the history of the world(no contemporaries) to have dinner with. A Legit dinner. These are people you'd like to learn from.
If you could have dinner with any three people from History, who would they be? Why choose them?
I'll answer when I get home from work tonight.

I'm trying to think of two other people I would want to talk to but I can't think of anyone that wouldn't get in the way of a good conversation. :<

Jesus Christ-I am not a religious whacko, but I do believe he existed and would like to chat with the man
Thomas Jefferson-Would like to talk to one of the founders of my country and I think he would be one of the most interesting of the group
Howard Hughes-Just to see how crazy he really was.
Oscar Wilde, Socrates, and either Nietzsche, Voltaire or Sigmund Freud. I'd have to think about which I'd prefer. Why? Simply because I think the table talk would be absolutely absurdly ridiculously fun to participate in. Between the talk about dreams and philosophy, I'd intentionally get them all drunk to see if they could keep up the intellectualism after several bottles of Pinot Noir.

Alexander the Great,
and last but certainly not least, Jesus Christ.

I wonder how many of these people could maintain conversations with us for very long O_o

Can't think of anyone else.

Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach, and Karl Benz: I include them as one since they are truly the creators of what would be considered the modern automobile. Notice the last names.
Jesus Christ: Oh, the questions I have.
Hitler: I want to hear his explanation of why he did what he did.

Pythagoras, Philippus Theophrastus Aureolus Bombastus von Hohenheim, Carl Jung.
There are way too many to choose from. Three would just not be enough. However, there is the A-Field for all of that.

You know, all I keep thinking of are Eratosthenes, Ptolemy, and maybe Aristotle... I guess I need to start learning Greek. :p Also maybe Josiah Whitney or Alexander von Humboldt... Or really, anyone else that played a major roll in Geographically natured sciences...
