If you were holding a dinner party and could invite any six people in the world, alive or dead, who would you invite?

This is a wish list of the people who you find most interesting and/or provocative. Pick any one in history or currently alive.

Try and give a brief reason why you would invite them.

Here are my picks:

1. Jesus...(We could have a meaningful discussion about god but not necessarily religion)

2. Einstein...(It would be exciting to talk to a man with his intellect. We could discuss the nature of the universe. He and Jesus might have an interesting debate)

3. Tom Hanks...(Intelligent, witty and thoughtful. Also I am a movie buff and would enjoy the Hollywood gossip)

4. Katherine Hepburn...(Intelligent, sexy and I am in love with her)

5. Bill Gates...(Super nerd, richest man in history, most philanthropic man in history. What is he really like?

6. Robin Williams...(need someone to keep things from getting too heavy)
I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

I would have to say Jesus would be a member, I would invite Billy Joel (my hero) and also bring Mickey Mouse just to make things intresting.

Hmm...Jesus, Billy Joel and Mickey Mouse, now that's a party! :thumbsup:

My best friend Kevin and his g/f

That dinner would not only be funny and enjoyable, but memorable.

1. Einstein - (I'd ask him: So why did the chicken cross the road?)
2. Jim Carey - (Great actor and good with comedy)
3. Bill Gates - (He can donate the food and everything needed for the after party: a LAN party at his house).
4. George Carlin - (Always need humour.)
5. Jesus (maybe He'll finally bring the pork chops...) :thumbsup:
6. Nikola Tesla - (Maybe she'll spark some conversation with Einstein.)

4. Jim Carrey...for the fun topics
5. Bruce Lee...for his sublime philosophy and strength
6. Scarlett Johansson...truly timeless beauty, as well as another woman for my wife to converse with.

Interesting choices. jgweed has the most high brow guests. Jesus is surprisingly popular. I note a distinct shortage of musicians..Leonard Bernstein coming the closest I think.

Must admit I do not know who J.S. Mill is. Will google him or her.

In no particular order or seating:

C. S. Lewis - wrote The Screwtape Letters and The Chronicles of Narnia and was an athiest turned christian.

Lisa Delpit - educator concerned with issues of the discourse of power and educational inequities

John Rutter - a music composer and director who says that he doesn't believe yet writes some of the most poignant spiritual music I have ever heard

Leonard Crow Dog - a 'medicine man' or 'healer-priest' of the Lakota and who 'talks' his books.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gar Haywood - has an excellent sense of humor. I love his detective fiction. He wrote, among other things, Bad News Travels Fast.

Animal, may i ask why Genghis Khan? military prowess? :thumbsup:


No, not only for military tactics or strategies, that created the largest contiguous empire known to mankind. But more of how he managed diplomacy, how he managed to create social harmony amongst so many different factions and ethnicities of his time. Yes, I am aware of his reputed barbarism and ruthlessness, but one cannot discount his reign without a bit of awe, and wonder how it was done.

Victor borg..excellent choice. Make sure you have a piano handy.

Danny Kaye...king of tongue twisters. Also a good choice.

Leonardo da Vinci....We could ask him about that damn code.

Columbus..probably be out sailing around bumping into continents.

van Gough...don't think I could stand to look at his disfigured earhole over dessert
