If you could have dinner with anyone living or dead, who would it be? I would have dinner with my Grandpa who died when I was a baby. He had a tattoo, making him cooler than Jesus. [Wink]

Most of the people on my list would be fairly controversial, because I'm not all that interested in dining with the 'good guys'. It's the villains of history I'd find to be the most interesting dinner partners, Hitler, Napoleon, Pol Pot, Caligula, the real nutters. I guess it's the same thing that makes sharks the stars at most aquaria, we are fascinated by that which we fear.

Data and Lex Luther (from Smallville), but not at the same dinner 'cause I'm afraid Lex would overshadow Data.

And a few people from GC... [Wink]

Hmm, what does it say about me if I want to meet fictitious people? [ohwell]

Hmm, I thought GC people were real people? The last person to call GC people "fake people" [1] was a little bit mentally unstable [Wink]

[1] Probably an understatement. Yeah, and a memory test for long term GCers.

Fake and fictitious are two different things in my book. Besides, I was hinting at the existentialism of online communication. [Razz]

My grandfather on my Dad's side, who died when I was too young to remember.

Oooh, interesting. At one point I would have agreed, but after having spent a few months reading almost nothing but Plato, I have to say, I think Socrates was a bit of a wank.

Aristotle is someone I'd love to have dinner with, since he was also a wank: he figured that women were inferior to men, since they have less teeth. Not that he ever counted or anything. I'd make him count mine before we ate. And then I'd watch him sulk. [Smile]

No competition here: I'd like to have dinner with my future husband. (Don't know his name yet though, 'cause I've yet to meet him. [Wink] )

No, that's the second date; I was referring to our first one.

Or are you simply suggesting "ways to meet guys"?

Having dinner with a dead person would be a cheaper date... They probably wouldn't eat much. I suppose that is a question for Spungo. [Big Grin]
