    August Shout Out! Who would you interview?

    My interview with bluedreamer made me wonder, "If you could interview just one person who would it be and what is the first question you would ask them?"

    Well, my first choice would be Hugh Laurie. My second choice would be Stephen Fry. All the others I'd love to interview are dead, some have been dead for a little over two thousand years.

    As for the first question I'd ask... hmm ... I'd ask them to formulate their defintion of time in ten words.

    Good choice. He was misunderstood by most people, mainly because they believed what the system said about him

    I would interview dead people too.

    Einstein: (because he knew more about how to relate physics to the experience of human reality than perhaps any other person alive or dead, and could put it in lay-man terms with clarity)

    Bob Marley: Because he (obviously) had a big heart, and it would be interesting to listen to his perspectives other than music.

    LarryPage and SergeyBrin, I do hope that they can let my keywords on the first of google, but this is unrealistic

    Ironically, General Patton. I'd want to know why he thought he was the living reincarnation of great generals of ages past.

    James May from Top Gear. I think he's a fascinating person and he'd teach you a couple of things during the interview.

    Bill Gates - why did Microsoft decide to make the screen of death blue? I used to like that color.

    Probably because it's easier on the eyes.

    Off topic but I've actually met the guy (went to a filming). All three of them (May, Hammond & Clarkson) are the nicest celebrities I've ever met. They're fantastic.

    rhysboy is posting off topic... how could you?

    Ok, let's be serious.

    The list would be tremendous and in my list there are some names that have been already metioned like Michael Jackson or Einstein.

    I would not mind to inverview Bill Gates and Steve Jobs together

    I would ask them why they didn't hire me and pay me a lot, lot of money... simply because I worth it

    Edit: Sorry, guys... it is Friday and my Friday mood is that silly. Can't be helped *sigh*

    I've met James May before and he was extremely polite, would've been nice if I could've had a genuine chat with them but they were busy and I didn't want to disturb them too much.

    Anyway, I'd love to go to a Top Gear filming but the queue for tickets is several years long now.

    Francisco Pizarro, the Spaniard who first arrived in what is now Peru and conned and murdered the Incas. I'd like to know how you can arrived in a wonderful new land and all you can think about is to be a callous and greedy *******.

    As for someone alive, perhaps Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the president of Liberia.

    Richard Branson - "What would have to happen to have you mentor me?" oh and "can we do it all from Nekker?"

    Oprah Winfrey - "What would have to happen for you to want to get me on your show?" and no, I won't be couch surfing!

    John Demartini - ... I don't even know what to ask him but would be cool to hang out for a day or more - so much to learn!

    Elvis - "Seriously, for the folks at home who are still wondering, can you please just confirm once and for all that you are in fact DECEASED?!" :P

    Einstein or Hawking, and my first question would be "If you could interview just one person who would it be and what is the first question you would ask them?"

    Then I'd get to more relevant matters...

    Actually, I think that's easy to answer... I have yet to know one conqueror that didn't abuse of the people conquered. Conquerors are ambitious.
