If you could have dinner with anyone...

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 
Well, if you were given the chance to have dinner with anyone, living or dead, with whom would it be?

(Dinner includes a meal of your choice and hours of conversation).

I will refrain from letting you all know with whom I would like to meet and dine with. I just want to see if someone else would pick the same person....

so bring it on!

If we could use some kind of translating device (babel fish?)...Pericles, if not then perhaps Martin Luther King.

(Would have liked Hendrix/Morrison or Elvis but what kind of conversation would that be?)

Gotta agree. David Bowie, (maybe Jim Henson or Walt Disney). Then again Paul McCartney would be pretty cool, so would Harrison Ford etc. etc. etc.

Perhaps you could hook up with FellowshipChurch iBook.

(Im sure Fellowship could pass on whatever you two had to say to eachother.)

Table for three?

No no she's a very good cook. She'd put something "special" in there for the breaded asshole. She's half Korean half white guy from Maine. Think of AI's Kate but smarter and better looking

Maybe it does. Okay I'll tell you. When a mommy and a daddy lover each other very very much they get together and have a baby. The baby's father is a "guy" and the baby's mother is called a "gal".

dude, look at the way u worded it originally.

[quote] She's half Korean half white guy from Maine. <hr></blockquote>

the way u worded it sounds like this gurl is half korean, and she's also half white guy from Maine. therefore, the original problem was that u made a vague reference, and that other dude was questioning it, seeing as how no gurl can also be a half guy.
how is this not clear for u??? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

grammatical errors are worse than intentional spelling changes.

As funny as it could sound to some, this atheist would also choose Jesus.

I would have dinner with Jesus as well. I would ask him to come back and slap his followers around and force them to re-read his scriptures. They seem to have forgotten what they say.

Larry Bird to talk hoops, Lee Harvey Oswald to get the straight story (why should he lie now?), The Screensavers' Megan Morrone because she's the only cute chick I know of who's into the same geeky stuff I like (married though, damn!), King Arthur to see if he really existed, and my father since he died when I was a baby.

I think I'd have dinner with that girl that hit on me my first year at the Museum of Fine Arts, who I was never able to find again. She showed me her photographs of dead turtles that had been hit by cars, and I always wondered wtf was up with that...

And actually, if it isn't too much trouble, maybe scott_h_phd could have my ex-girlfriend over for dinner too

This is easy: Keith Richards.

All the talk about music, blues, guitars, amps, rock and roll, rhythm, Chuck Berry, what makes rock and roll "rock and roll".

He's surprisingly deep and well-spoken on all the subjects above (if you can just struggle enough to understand him). He gives THE BEST interviews ever, so I'd love to just sit with him for hours and talk about stuff.

He's someone I really like and admire, believe it or not.

Plus, you just KNOW he's got some great stories!



AND, sitting beside him at a table, I'd suddenly become quite devastatingly handsome and could probably pull the chicks. I mean, LOOK at him...

jesus would be cool, but i only speak english...so that rules that out (though, being the son of God i guess he could make me understand him somehow right?)...if i have to stick to english speakers (limits the time frame to the last few centuries) i would go like this:

1. get plastered with Peter O'Toole when he was about 40ish (my age)

2. dinner with Jack the Ripper..would freak me out, but could be a fascinating experience

3. dinner with Mark Twain

4. dinner with David Lynch (especially if he brought his beautiful wife)

david bowie, shakespear, abe lincoln...etc

if language is no problem

1. Jesus, to ask, well we all know what i would ask

2. Buddah, see above

3. Plato

4. Galileo

5. Michelangelo

could go on forever....g


oh oh oh.....dinner with adam and eve (no apple pie though) would be coolist

My original reply God.

If he showed up, the mystery is solved. If he didn't the mystery goes on.

Jesus doesn't count, because he was human(ish). For all you know, all the miracles he performed could have been the result of having been the first person to have a good supply of cocaine or such

But dinner will probably be cold if he ever makes it. I hate waiting for him.
