If i could spend a day with anyone in the world, i would want to spend it with Julius Caesar. (of course i would go back in time or something..i dont wanna spend a day with the dirt where he was supposedly buried..)I think that he is way cool, and i have read a lot about him. That time i think is really cool, and that would be a blast to see that period in time, especialy with Caesar, one of the greatest emperors of the world.

John Winthrop, first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Colonial American history is so exciting to me and he is the great-great-(I don't know how great..)-grandfather of John Kerry!

I seriously pondered this and I've decided...John Mayer! LOL Yeah he seems really cool to hang out with.

Tie between Syd Barret and Stephen Hawking. Who just saw an awesome essay idea?

By Anglophile (Anglophile) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 02:48 am: Edit

Eleanor of Aquitane, Jane Austen, Queen Elizabeth I, Moliere (he was a hottie), and Prince William--for obvious reasons.
I like the "dinner party" question better, then you don't have to narrow down your list so much. I hate having to choose!

By Piman3141 (Piman3141) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 12:39 pm: Edit

Hitler (to beat the living hell out of him), Hannibal (the Carthaginian general), Einstein, and Lao Tsu.

man... i don't know.. if it was jesus... i wouldn't know what you say. if hannibal lector, i would throw up.

i would probably say.... umm... i know this sounds so dumb... but paris hilton. she seems fun to be friends with and an amish girl, i would go out in the city with her.

By Victimofapathy (Victimofapathy) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 12:51 pm: Edit

Maynard James Keenan, just because his lyrics are interesting, and, from interviews I've read, he's seems like a pretty awesome person.
Also, Ben Gibbard seems like he would be cool too. And Conan O'Brien. Oh, and Maddox (maddox.xmission.com) would probably be fun to spend a day with. Just because he's hilarious.

If I had to spend a day with Paris Hilton I think I'd shoot myself.

By Victimofapathy (Victimofapathy) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 12:54 pm: Edit

Also, Charlie Kaufman. He would be really interesting.
God, I could keep going on forever.

By Jenesaispas (Jenesaispas) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 01:02 pm: Edit

Hitler, so I could kill him.

By Victimofapathy (Victimofapathy) on Thursday, July 29, 2004 - 01:15 pm: Edit

Hitler would be interesting to meet. I wouldn't necessarily kill him, because I think talking to him would be really cool, in a morbid sort of way. I'd just like to know how his mind works. It would be facsinating.

Oprah Winfrey. Who wouldn't want to spend the day with the single female who has influenced nearly all aspects of pop-culture, who, on a side note, also happens to be a billionaire?

By Anglophile (Anglophile) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 12:07 am: Edit

Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo, and Gaston Leroux (phantom of the opera)-- because these were really cool adventurous guys as well as amazing authors. I'd love to have edited Les Miserables for Victor Hugo-- it needs a few hundred pages removed. Alexandre and Gaston were very exciting people regardless of their novels. And Anne Rice, because she just seems to have fun.
I think I'm going through a French phase.

By Mahras (Mahras) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 12:15 am: Edit

Einstein, Tolstoy, Machiavelli, Jefferson, Muhammed, Moses, Jesus, and of course Brianna Banks. *Droooooolsss*

By Neelesh (Neelesh) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 02:45 pm: Edit

Anne Rice is a way good author. and i liked Les Miserables..i dont usually like lit, but that book, i really liked.

if i wanted to spend a day with someone hott and rich, maybe the olsen twins? maybe cleopatra before she was married???

By Poison_Ivy (Poison_Ivy) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 02:57 pm: Edit

I liked the movie for Les Miserables.

I would love to hang out with Daniel Radcliffe, Prince William, or Tony Blair.


I would prefer William...:)

BTW, the way, Cleopatra had a prominent nose... aka. BIG THING. Just a random fact.

By Takiusproteus (Takiusproteus) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 05:08 pm: Edit

Julius Caesar is overrated. He was never an emperor, btw.

Marius. Now that's a great guy.

By Sparky (Sparky) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 05:14 pm: Edit

I would meet Rasputin. He is a very strange person and it would be very cool to meet him. He did die a very strange death.

By Onnihs (Onnihs) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 05:42 pm: Edit

Tie bewteen Dave Mathews and Bill Clinton.


"I would meet Rasputin. He is a very strange person and it would be very cool to meet him. He did die a very strange death. "

Hey Sparky, did you see that pic of the proposed Rasputin weener on the news? LOL. It was huge. That's where he got his "power" and "influence" over the Russian Czarina.

By Piman3141 (Piman3141) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 08:31 pm: Edit

Rasputin did love his orgies...seriuosly. He thought the orgy was a way to connect to God spiritually or something. Weird.

By Chemgirl (Chemgirl) on Friday, July 30, 2004 - 09:45 pm: Edit

Jesus for me... but if that wasn't possible, I'd like to work with Dr. Paul Farmer, an American medical missionary in the poorest area of Haiti. He's also the author of the book "Mountains Beyond Mountains."

well i've spent time with brianna banks, haha mahras, it was well worth the money.

So now if I could spend the day with anyone, I guess it'd be Peter Lynch or Warren Buffet, maybe natalie portman.

Well since I know all of you girls are thinking it but just not saying it....

Brad Pitt

By Asianalto (Asianalto) on Sunday, August 01, 2004 - 10:19 am: Edit

Hmmm, no, if we're going by hotness alone to spend a day with, I wouldn't pick Brad Pitt...maybe Josh Groban? Or early 90s Luke Perry.

By Tongos (Tongos) on Sunday, August 01, 2004 - 02:25 pm: Edit

ocean! ocean!

By Stanfordman99 (Stanfordman99) on Sunday, August 01, 2004 - 02:34 pm: Edit

Ghengis Khan, the most powerful man in all of human history and the leader of the biggest empire in history. That would be awesome.

BTW he makes Alexander the great seem like a footnote.

By Swimminchica77 (Swimminchica77) on Sunday, August 01, 2004 - 08:23 pm: Edit

I can't choose between John Mayer, John Adams, or Jason Read. All would be awesome to sit down and talk with.

By Lucifersam (Lucifersam) on Sunday, August 01, 2004 - 08:51 pm: Edit

If we factored in hotness too, I'd have to add, ironically, Gloria Steinem to that last, as well as Sylvia Plath. Two beautiful and very intelligent women of the past. I like the dinner party idea someone else brought up earlier. Imagine a dinner party, with Syd Barrett, Stephen Hawking, Gloria Steinem, and Sylvia Plath. And what about Stevie Nicks, from when she first joined Fleetwood Mac? What a bonny lass. Or even Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the strange and frankly misunderstood duo that rampaged through Columbine High a few years ago. I'd love to see what they were actually thinking, and what they were REALLY like. Or how about Aleister Crowley? The wonderful possibilities of this topic are almost endless . . .

By Zero (Zero) on Sunday, August 01, 2004 - 08:56 pm: Edit

Billy Corgan. Or if dead people count Hendrix or River Phoenix. or maybe Winona Ryder. or maybe just one of my friends. i dont know.

By Ilovefood (Ilovefood) on Tuesday, August 03, 2004 - 02:56 am: Edit

Hmm...I think I'd spend the day with myself...but not me, just another me, y'know? This would be the same as spending a day with GeniousAsh, since she is just the female version of ... us?

By Fyre (Fyre) on Tuesday, August 03, 2004 - 03:09 am: Edit

This "Spending the day with Harry Potter," well...I must agree I would love to spend the day with him! He is my hero! Who hoo!

HARRY FAN FOR LIFE Y'ALL!

if he exists, God. if not, jesus (i'd ask him how he got so many people to believe what he said).

on the more morbid side, i'd like to meet hitler and rasputin.

i'd also love to meet angelina jolie because she seems like a cool, independent woman who'd be fun to hang out with.

...and if there's still a couple of minutes left in the day...i'd Definetely like to meet brad pitt or colin farrel.

By Lucifersam (Lucifersam) on Wednesday, August 04, 2004 - 12:46 am: Edit

Bzrk: That's actually a really good answer . . . I second that!

By Aim78 (Aim78) on Wednesday, August 04, 2004 - 02:27 am: Edit

You know what would make my life? Spending the day with Christopher Reeve and the main cast of Seinfeld. I'd probably be drooling like an adoring fan, though. But then again, so would Jerry with Chris Reeve in the room. Superman is a huge part of my childhood, and Seinfeld is a huge part of my teenage years (not as big, though). If we could eat cereal for dinner, that would be the best. I could discuss different types of cereal with Jerry for hours.
