    Who would be be? Dead or alive. From any time, and anywhere in history. Just 5 people who you could eat dinner with and make conversation with. My friend brought up this idea and I thought it would be cool to post here. Sorry if there is a thread like this, but I couldn't resist :) So who would it be? By the way, don't say god. You can say Jesus, but not god. He is already busy enough as it is :cool: For me, it would be:

    1. Jesus
    2. Steve Jobs (it ain't a dinner without Steve around!)
    3. Bill Clinton
    4. George Washington
    5. Albert Einstein

    This would one hell of a dinner! Now it's your turn.

    3. Einstein
    4. Machiavelli
    5. Timothy Geithner!

    THAT would be awesome. Three economists, a physicist, and the greatest jerk there ever was. :D

    Nelson Mandela
    Hugo Chavez
    Princess Diana
    Richard Branson
    Albert Camus

    Possibly the most random list ever, and i would not expect anyone to really be able to communicate with each other, but I would personally find it fascinating to meet these people.

    What a great question! I don't even know where to begin or how to possibly only list five...

    The engineer/scientist in me would invite Nikola Tesla / David Bohm...
    The musician in me would invite Richard Strauss...
    The adventurer in me would invite Reinhold Messner...
    The businessman in me would invite Richard Branson / Donald Trump...
    The actor in me would invite Christopher Nolan...
    The strategist in me would invite Sun Tzu...
    My warped sense of humor would invite Conan O'Brien / Seth Green...
    The creative thinker in me would invite Steve Jobs...
    I'd definitely have to include my brother...

    There's going to be many more that I will think of, maybe I'll add some more at another time... Culling the list down to only 5 though would be near impossible... ;) :cool:

    I officially retract this
    Best list ever - I'm gonna steal it - just replace your dad with Bob Dylan and I'd be happy (not that your dad wouldn't be cool...)

    I would invite the five nicest girls I've ever met in my life.

    It's a little bit like the movie Serial lover
