Theodore Roosevelt, possibly one of our nation's greatest presidents, certainly one of the most interesting. I recently finished reading a biography of his life before he became president. The man was incredible!

volatilegx,

What a great choice!

Teddy was bully - just bully!

Shot in the chest as a NY state gubernatorial(?) candidate, and insisted on giving his speech before going to hospital. Very-widely read, and one of the last "Renaissance men."

I can't come up with anything better to follow that!

Any great spiritual leader - Jesus, Mohommad, Moses, Buddha, Paul, Jeremiah. I would just hope a translater would come too, or it would be a very aukward lunch ;)

Nikola Tesla. I really want to know more about his ambient light with no visible source. Brilliant mind, serious quirks. Oh yeah, don't forget about his plasma experiments.

Since I can only ask one person, I'd ask Tesla to bring some guests. :) I really want to ask Aristotle about his juvenile unmoved mover concept and this whole cosmological argument. Unmoved mover...pshaw. Any child knows enough to ask, "who made God then"...

Kant, Spinoza, Alexander the Great, Churchill, Descartes, can we turn this into a dinner party?

Can we stipulate that we can speak in a common language? I mean, with the 20 words of Italian that I know, talking to da Vinci for a couple of hours is going to be a mighty dull conversation. ;)

How about Nicole Simpson, with a court reporter and a few others present?

George W. Bush. Deceased.

That was before I got into SEO. You know what they say...

All the intelligent famous people have books, movies, or bios you can read. Plus, I don't think they aren't going to be real great conversationalists. So, the only thing left is an enjoyable meal.

Marilyn Monroe.

True, but most of these were written by someone else and so are partial in some way, whether positive or negative. It must be interesting to get a first hand account.

I would love to have dinner with any one of the great kings from Ancient Egypt. There are about a million questions id love to ask anyone from that era.

That's one way to get brownie points! ;)

I haven't answered my own question yet, so...I would choose the Dalai Lama, I can't think of a more interesting person.

It's a close toss between Albert Einstein, Akira Kurasawa or J. Edgar Hoover (image the stories he has!)...

Hawkgirl- why don't you hit him with Gravity's Rainbow or V instead. You'll do much more damage.

The Apostle Paul

(On a related topic...I always thought it would be so neat to be able to sit in one spot and "jump" to different points in time as an observer....imagine sitting on a hillside in Gettysburg...watching the dinosaurs, the rise of the Indians, the advancement of the U.S. the Civil War...etc...)
