    Actually yeah, that post made me feel quite bad :|

    Obviously I would rather spend my last meal with my family, but the above would be interesting.

    I've had plenty of dinners with my family.


    I'd pick:

    • Isaac Newton
    • Albert Einstein
    • Archimedes
    • Bernhard Riemann
    • Richard Feynmann
    • John von Neumann
    • Werner Heisenberg
    • Subrahmanyan Chandresekhar
    • Alan Turing
    • Carl Friedrich Gauss
    • David Hilbert


    I know you wanted ten, but I made a list of twenty, and I couldn't possibly narrow it down further than 11. If I had to choose, I'd remove myself from the table, and let them talk - hopefully recording the conversation for myself afterward.

    In real life it would be my family aswell. But today is for those who I would like to meet.

    1) Che Guevara
    2) Vladamir Lenin
    3) Ian Fleming
    4) JFK
    5) Joseph Stalin
    6) Adolf Hitler
    7) Karl Marx
    8) Fidel Castro
    9) Ricky Jay (as if he would get a say in table conversations )
    10) Ravi Zacharias

    If I was allowed fictional characters to come to life, number four would be James Bond.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
    No offence Neil

    In no particular order (and not including religious figures):

    Abraham Lincoln
    M.A. Jinnah
    Gandhi
    Muhammad Ali
    Mark Twain
    Thomas Jefferson
    Leonardo da Vinci
    Julius Caesar
    Marilyn Monroe
    Michael Jordan

    I’m not that strong in science, so I won’t have much to talk about with great scientists like Einstein and Newton. Much more interested in politics and government, hence various world leaders on my list. And yes, I’ll be seated next to Marilyn.

    Well, most of the older scientists, I know their work, so hopefully we can talk about how they came up with ideas, what they did, etc. You can't converse on their level, but hopefully you can listen.

    1 Michael Palin - Reckon he'd be the perfect dinner guest. Well spoken, oft travelled, highly intelligent with wit surpassed by few. Could happily talk to him and him alone. Its a huge complement to Stephen Fry if i called him a poor mans Palin.

    2. Winston Churchill - Would feel he would be a great character around the table, again a quick wit and fiece intellect, full of stories galore stretching from the Boer campaign to his Premiership

    3. Brian Clough - Would keep the atmosphere firmly grounded, taking no intellectual bullpoo from others and would probably talk (and drink) the rest under the table.

    4. Prince Charles - I'm possibly the only person in the UK who has a positive interest in the man, seems a fascinating man full of untapped insight and thought, would be nice to take him out of the limelight and hear forthright views of the world from the man who may well one day be head of this country

    5. Phil Ochs - Another, like Clough, who'd be happy to smash through the intellectual air with honest, witty and pretty damn cutting comments on the world. 'The Singing Journalist' himself was never one to hide his meanings behind vague lyrics and incomprehensables, unlike a certain Mr Dylan (see his songs 'Heres To The State of Mississippi' or 'The Ballad of William Worthy' for great examples), and i'm sure even he would fancy a quip at the expense of Churchill.

    6. Richie Benaud - If theres a man in cricket worth sitting and listening to, Richie is the man. A rich history as a player supplimented by an age behind the mic, the tales would be long and tall. Another known for his sharpness in comment (at least, off the mic).

    7. Ewan McGregor - An actor who fascinates me, hugely talented and entertaining, yet a huge hearted man who keeps himself to himself (was adopting foreign children long before they became Angelina/Madge's fashion accessory). Another man with a tale or two

    8. Mark Thomas - Oh everyone is in for a shock if they thought it'd be a quiet, civilized gathering with this man at the table. A man who can provoke howls of laughs then shocked silence in one sentance. Will deliver the laughs but will also tackle the weightier issues full on.



    That would be my table complete, think adding 2 more would just devalue it.

    It would be very Bohring without another Nobel Prize winner.
