    Would you have dinner with? This was asked of the seniors in my high school yearbook. My answer then, in 1985, would still hold up today for me

    Leonardo Da Vinci because the man while eccentric and probably crazy was not only an artist but so far ahead of his time. With blueprints for deep sea diving, an army tank, a plane, a model of a flying bird etc etc.

    So who would it be for you? Besides a dead relative, I mean somebody famous.

    I would like to also meet:

    Ben Franklin just because the man's humor was matched by his intelligence and it would be cool to here the real stories of that time.

    Jesus, I don't believe he's the son of god but would like to know if he really believed it, if not what he would think of what became of his legacy.

    Marilynn Monroe, just because she's Marilynn Monroe.

    I was going to put Randy rhoads Hard to believe it is coming up on 30 years since his death. As for Nietzche it would be worth it just to admire that mustache.
