With the zombie thread dying down, I thought I would start another one.

You are going out to dinner! You made a reservation for 6 at a private table in your favorite restaurant and the entire bill will be taken care of.

But who to invite? Ahhh, that is the question isn't it?

You can invite whoever you want (some rules listed below), whether they are living or dead and can spend the night with them until the sun comes up. When the sun comes up, they disappear (if they have passed) and you are just left with the memories.

Rules:
CAN ONLY BE MEN
Assume that you are getting these men in the prime of their careers, unless you choose otherwise (grandfather comes to mind)
They are all aware of today's current events

So, who would you pick? Would you want Jefferson's take on politics today? Would you want to see how Da Vinci and Edison innovated? Would you want to spend the night with Sinatra drinking and meeting women? Or a combination of all three!

Who'd your pick?

Easy.

Harry Houdini-I would enjoy picking his brain, observing his conversations with Chris, arguments with Doyle, humbuggery with Barnum... everything.

Chris Angel-I would enjoy affording a youthful cutting edge illusionist to teach and learn from the godfather of illusionists.

P.T. Barnum-Would be great to listen to stories of humbuggery and showmanship.

John Merrick-The Elephant Man, I would be interested in hearing from his perspective on anything, especially putting lifes problems and challenges into perspective and stories from his time on the road as monster and amongst society as a curiosity.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle-Doyle and Ehrich had a sort of respectful rivalry in dealing with spiritualism and the paranormal, it would be interesting to see them hash it out a bit.

Edward Mordrake-I would be interested to get a good look at the devil twin and with his permission listen to see if I could hear the things it allegedly whispered to him and maybe get the opinions of Houdini and Merrick on it.
Oops I made a table for seven. Mordrake would have to be scheduled for the next round table.
Just so everyone knows, you are picking no more than FIVE guys- unless you don't want to sit at this table.
• Leonardo da Vinci ...for the "how" of it.
• Signund Freud ...for the "why" of it.
• Andy Warhol ...for the "why not" of it.
• Hunter S. Thompson ...for the "hell" of it.
• And last, but not least: Jesus Christ ...just what WOULD he have done?
I would have picked Jesus in order to help me get down to the answers of everything, but I don't know if I would be able to understand his language. Plus Davinci spoke Itallian and I don't understand or speak that language either. The language barrier is a definate consideration and conversation killer.
You are correct, sir (again). Hmmm... and if I add in two interpretors... well that would knock out two of my guests. What a quagmire! Will get back to you on that... LOL
:-)
Good catch, maybe I should add the rule that they can all speak English. :-)
You might want to steer clear of Siggy. Interesting guy, but lacking in validity. Maybe Zimbardo or Milgram? Just a thought.
Jesus Christ (don't have to worry about the language barrier - he's God)

Thomas Jefferson

General Robert E. Lee

C.S. Lewis

General George S. Patton

These men were chosen because they are some of my historical heroes.
My brother-in-law, Darin - He's my best guy friend and I wouldn't want him to miss out on an experience like this.

My paternal grandpa, H.T. - Born in 1895, moved out to California during the Great Depression, held every job imaginable including deputy sheriff and Southern Baptist Minister, lived well into his 90's, passed away when I was about 6. So much I would want to ask him.

Johnny Cash - What a life. I love his music. I love his story.

Abraham Lincoln - In my opinion, the greatest president. I would love to hear his views on the current state of the country and politics, particularly the Republican party.

Jesus - Cliche? Maybe. Still, I would love to talk face to face with someone who lived and loved perfectly.

Also, I would want to meet in a dark quiet pub somewhere.
Wade Davis-Nice one. Would try to see if he could hook me up with some of that tetradotoxin.
The only thing I read was The Serpent and the Rainbow.
