Ultimate Dinner Party

If you could invite any 4 people (living or dead) to a dinner party, who would they be?

Mine would be:

1. My mother - she died in 1979 and is still sorely missed

2. Prof. Brian Cox - the British physicist and TV personality

3. George Best - the greatest footballer ever

4. Marc Bolan - the lead singer of T Rex

1.Carl Sagan

2. Frank Lloyd Wright

3. Winston Churchill

4. Chris Hadfield

If I had a fifth choice, it would definitely be Tay Zonday (Chocolate Raiiiiin), so I could justify serving a chocolate fondue  :P .

(or maybe the Scorpions...)

Good question. Answers to these kinds of questions are always incomplete, of course, and tomorrow I might think of other people, I guess.

 

I would probably invite Clement Attlee, the post-war Labour PM of the UK, generally seen as one of the best PM's the UK ever had. An architect should be present too, maybe the recently deceased Oscar Niemeyer, an incredibly fascinating person. I also admire Václav Havel, the late Czech dissident and president. As a student of history, I should invite a historian, but which one? I think I'll go for E.P. Thompson, a non-determinist marxist historian who once famously used the term 'Geschichtenscheissenschlopff' in a discussion about approaches to history (historians are incredibly good at arguing :P ). (Literally, he said: "And all of them are "Geschichtenscheissenschlopff", unhistorical bleep". Yes, indeed, he used words that are censored on this site :P )
