Assume for a moment that the Probe has granted you the ability to have a nice dinner with any three historical figures, living or dead. The only restriction is that they cannot be fictional. Who would you choose and why?

For me, I think my guests would look something like this;

1. William Shakespeare
2. Helen of Troy
3. Jesus of Nazareth

1 and 3 don't need much explanation, but I chose 2 simply because she must have been pretty darn attractive to start a ten year war :).

Great question. Usually you only get one, and it ends up being whomever you are idolizing at that particular moment. But with three you can also consider how they would react with one another as well.

My list for this moment...

1) Thomas Jefferson to talk about polotics
2) Werner Von Braun to talk about current state of the worlds space programs
3) Richard Feynman, to listen to one of his famous stories

but there are so many other. When will the Probe grant me a zombie banquette?

1. A person from long ago, before the fall of the Roman Empire... Jesus is a pretty popular choice here, and I think he would be an interesting guy to talk to, though I'd need an interpreter, since I don't speak Aramaic or Hebrew.

2. An Apollo astronaut, probably Aldrin. Or maybe a shuttle astronaut, I'm not really sure. Wouldn't be able to enjoy their meal because I would constantly bombard them with geeky spaceflight questions.

3. An attractive, intelligent, confident and dynamic woman. What? C'mon, I deserve to go on a date sometime... :rolleyes:
