    People you'd like to shake hands with

    Sort of the opposite of the people you'd like to kick in the balls thread.

    Tom Watson
    Seve Ballesteros
    John Rockefeller (Mainly for his philanthropy)
    Gandhi
    Noam Chomsky

    Philanthropy is the posh word for charity word IIRC.

    Nah, Charity is the thankless work with what resources you can spare

    Philanthrophy is the public 'look at me, i'm helping! Please acknowledge me' with what resources you wont miss.

    Bill Gates probably donates more than anyone else on earth, never gets called a philanthophist because he doesnt make a song or dance about it.

    Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
    Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers

    Funny thing, I actually said to Smitteh on MSN the other day, that I would like to shake the hand of his father, Smitteh then sent me a picture of his father, and my aspirations to shake his hand doubled.
