    This is a survey really. I am curious to know who you admire most in world history? Who is it you believe changed the world of today moreso than anyone else? If you had the opportunity to meet someone in the past, no matter how far back, who would it be and why?

    andrew jackson, so I could slap him upside the head and ask him why he couldn't control his own people.

    George washington. His support was so complete he could have been declared king if he wanted. he refused, bringing a new standard of enlightened leadership into the world scene. The refusal heard 'round the world.

    Either Jesus Christ, because I would have loved to seen His life on Earth firsthand, or Bob Marley, who is my main musical influence.

    Of the top of my head, Alexander the Great.

    He was schooled by Aristotle, was an enormously succesfull military strategist, conquering the whole civilized world as he knew it, truly, and for good reason, believed in his own divinity, and paved the way for Western Civilization.

    Probably an interesting individual.

    I almost put Alexander as well, Zhukov, but I didn't want to be called a fascist.:D
