    Cleopatra - I'd get her drunk with some wine and let her do bad things to me.


    But seriously, I'd probably like sharing a table with some explorers and/or philosophers or leaders. Darwin, Vasco de Gama, Saladin, Magellan, Socrates, Mendel, etc....

    No it'd be pure comedy, jesus would look at hitler, hitler would look away sheepishly guilty and abraham would be eating some fried chicken astounded at today's marvelous foodstuffs.

    Once again this post has turned into a debate far from its original intent.
    Just goes to show humans can't hold their emotions at bay and argue logically. (sorry to bring the debate back but isn't what this post is for??)

    I guess this topic falls into 2 realms and they are....

    firstly all the great people you would have on your table!

    secondly a mix between the great and the bad so you could have the ultimate agument on your table!

    2 different debates rolled into one which is why this post has ended up as gibberish. (the worst trait of debating sites - letting the participants guide the site.... without conscientious moderators policing it properly)

    so I will forget the latter and concentrate on the former ( the great people).. So heres my table for the people on my dinner.

    1) Isaac Newton - his laws are the foundation of our science
    2)albert einstein - he furthered Newton.
    3) St Paul - for christianity (no point including any other person for religion - christianity is the biggest on planet and St paul is the best evidence of such!!
    4) Socrates - principal philosopher - may be outdated now but still my hero - I attribute all science to him (&not aristotle)
    5) Niels Bohr - man behind quantumn physics (ouch my head hurts!)
    6) descartes - he was great in his day.. but imagine his arguments against these people in20th century

    There are so many more. galileo, copernicus, ptolemy, Plato, Marx,Locke, faraday, darwin, aistotle, Planck etc etc etc the list is endless..

    The country singer and the daughter of the borgia pope, alexander v(?), lover of his elder brother cesare, to whom machiavelli's prince was dedicated to.

    That would be an interesting dinner.

    Goofy.

    I'd lay to rest, once and for all, the question - what the hell is goofy?

    It's funny

    A good Buddhist can be a good Christian, but not vice versa; because the dogma of Christianity makes it highly unadviseable.

    Alexander Hamilton and Aaraon Burr. At the same time. In the middle of a raging colonial *****fight. It would be beautiful.

    Toss-up: either Thomas Jefferson or "Marse Robert"--General Robert Edward Lee.
