If you are to meet a celebrity or dead person who would it be?

Probably George Takei from the original Star Trek. We've exchanged some emails before and he was really cool (and tells funny/interesting stories).

I once interviewed Emme, the plus-sized supermodel, for a podcast show I used to do. That was funny, because she was tipsy from margaritas (and admitted it in the interview). She was really nice, though, and let us record her doing a plug for the podcast. XD (link is for a fun commercial we did for the show but sadly, doesn't contain the plug)

I wouldn't want to meet any dead people.

I've already met the famous people I most want to meet. I ended up talking to the guys from Reel Big Fish at an after party for their concert when they came to town. Our whole conversation pretty much consisted of me being dragged up and getting introduced and then

Abe Lincoln. Just so we could compare beards since everyone is always claiming I stole his. lol!

Maybe Da Vinci or some of the other great masters of art. I'd love to be able to watch them and learn like a couple other people here.

Lastly, Akira Kurosawa. I've loved his movies ever since I watched Dreams for high school film class and I'd love to ask him to write some scripts for me.

Hopefully I don't get scalded for this, but Hitler. And not in the way Izzy^ wants to meet him, but more so that I can really talk to him, and understand the mind behind that crazy moustache. Don't worry, I agree that everything Hitler did was terrible, but it would be wrong to say that he was not a genius in regards to his dictator and army general skills. So just maybe an hour to sit and have a good talk with Hitler, to ask him what he was really thinking.

Other than that… Jessica Alba. That should be self-explanatory. >_>

Kind of a digression here, but you do realize that a great part of Germany's defeat was due to his constant meddling in troop movements on the Russian front, right? He was good at making plans, not so much on the follow-up. Thankfully.

And in the interest of not derailing this thread I'll add another semi-famous person I want to meet. Sam Logan of Sam and Fuzzy, just so I can ask him how he made his comic so big so quickly.

Indeed. But that does not discount all his prior “accomplishments,” if you will. It's not easy to have done all that he did…but this is going off on a tangent. =P

I wanna talk with David Icke, Credo Mutwa, Erle Argonza, Barbara Marciniak, Alex Jones… and many others of similar attitude.

For dead people, I'd like to meet all my ancestors so I can trace my genetic line until the very beginning. Maybe I'd get a bigger explanation about myself and how this whole world functions. Is this whole world just a bunch of random unrelated events? Is there really a hidden hand in the form of illuminati, reptoids, devils, etc… who are responsible for the negativity in this world?

So I would finally know if my line really originated. And I would also get an answer to the question of human origins and the meaning of life that has long been debated.

Are we created by God? Are we from apes? Or did we come from another planet?

The truth is out there.

I always wanted to meet Anne McCaffery…
But now I don't think meeting any cleb or famous person would be that worthwhile or interesting. People are just people… all the same.

For dead people, probably one of my relatives, like a great, great grandfather or mother, so I could learn more about the family history. Heh, even talking to my now dead paternal grandfather again would be nice, I never talked enough to him when he was alive. He was a pretty interesting guy.

Methamphetamine was commonly used by Adolf Hitler.
Health conditions associated with meth abuse include memory loss, aggression, violence, psychotic behavior, heart damage, neurological damage, weight loss, rapid tooth decay (“meth mouth”), meningitis, paranoia, delusions, hallucinations, severe headaches…It was first synthesized in Japan and was used by German pilots and soldiers in WW II.

Nazis on Crank.
…not a pretty thing, folks.

Aside from the Horror of the concentration camps…in which many more than just Jews were tortured…Hitler made a fatal flaw by trying to invade Russia.
Also, many key Nazis after WWII were protected from persecution by transferring their assets(spoils of war) into corporations.
Many of those same corporations at this very moment are in control of your life and mine.

Hitler was a puppet of the Krupp metalworks
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krupp

Many pharmaceutical studies were made in those concentration camps. After the war, these crimes were tried at what became known as the Doctors' Trial, and revulsion at the abuses perpetrated led to the development of the Nuremberg Code of medical ethics.



One lasting thing that Nazi Germany gave us was an awareness of what a brutal And paranoid society can do when the wrong people are in control.

other than that, they were snazzy dressers.

Heh, even with that it's funny that people don't realise that their famous officer uniforms were just old fashioned styles that EVERYONE wore a few years before: French, Americans, British, Japanese, Australians, Italians, Belgians, Russians… Even during WW2 General Patton still wore his. The only big difference were the colours. -even enlisted men wore it…

Considering their purported dress habits, I don't think that taking a pee would a be a reason not to show for them… They'd prolly do that right in front of you. :(

The Whermacht and Waffen SS were among the first to make widespread use of camouflage clothing, so that's cool. The SS “Dot” camo was so effective a modified version was adapted by the Bundeswehr recently and it presaged the current US digital.

But British Battledress uniforms IMHO areso much cooler even if you do look like a convict and they ride up in the back. The USA was the first to issue issue specific “combat” uniforms and set the standard for military uniform since WWII. US uniforms can also be extremely comfy especially BDUs. You feel like you're wearing an old pair of pajamas. Spend a few weeks in one and it can go answer roll call while you still sleep.

As for celebs or dead people; Louis XIV's mistresses were a very interesting bunch and I'd like to meet Madame Du Stael, Napoleon, U.S. Grant, von Moltke, any of the Founding Fathers (and slip some Prozac to John Marshall's wife) John Wayne, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Peter Sellers, Jim Henson, and Joshua Ben Joseph.

As for people still living with the internet there are so many I can correspond with and my bro works in the TSA so he's met just about everybody as they come through. Olivia De Haviland and Maureen O'Hara would top the list and the surviving members of Monty Python. (met Graham Chapman before he died)

I don't really consider him dead or a celebrity, but if I could choose him, I would choose Jesus. I would have soooo many questions and just seeing him would be incredible (yes, I'm very Christian).
