Ever think about having the ultimate discussion on philsophy?

What if you had this one chance to invite anyone you wanted dead or alive to sit together at the round table and discuss philosophy?

Let's say you had a maximum of ten guests....

So who would you invite?

I would invite:
Buddha
Einstein
Jesus
Martin Luther King
Socrates
The Dalai Lama
Francis Crick
Leonardo Davinci
Plato
Thomas Jefferson

Oh but not poor Chai.


Don't worry about me, I'll just sit in the park across the street and watch everyone having a good time through the window.

Maybe God willing you won't be able to get everyone together in January or February. That way it won't be so cold on that cement park bench. March with its winds will be bad enough, but I'm not complaining.

Go..... go have a good time with your friends......I'll be all right.

Ok, fine. And Chai. But only if she promised to remain naked the whole time. And entertain us by balancing tea cups and saucers on her head.

Are you sure you're not thinking bachelor party?

Bachelor: A male animal without a mate during breeding season. Laughing
Bachelor party; a male without a mate during breeding season surrounded by other males without mates during breeding season and loud music and dancing girls?

I made that last one up myself. Very Happy

None of them. I would invite God! Definately. Now that's another matter if some up there have become God. Mr. Green
