If you could choose any historical figure to have dinner with, who would it be and why?

Saigo Takamori 英雄西郷隆盛 because he is one of the greatest and last Japanese Samurai. A man of true honor and he fight those days for what he believed in. He is one of Japan's greatest hero's during the Satsuma rebellion and IMO there is no greater warrior. I would be hugely honor to be dinner with such a person.

Vladimir Lenin. The man who changed the history of mankind.
Vladimir Lem is the antagonist in Max Payne 2. Had to google your guy though. Sure, he can have a like. Me, I have no idea. I wouldn't understand any of them. I'm waiting to see who says Jesus

Okay, I'll say it. I'd choose to have dinner with Jesus, and to be perfectly honest, why the hell would anyone choose someone else? Even if you're not religious, he's clearly the most significant figure in all of history. The historical evidence is fairly supportive that he existed, so regardless of whether he was really the son of/human incarnation of God, he'd still be the most impactful person that you could possibly ever meet. The only reason to pick someone else would be because you just heard some fact about whichever person from history and think they sound cool to talk to.

And there it is 🤣. Tbh it would be kinda cool to hang out with Jesus and get some hard facts in case some things were lost in translation. But like I said, I'd likely just be smiling and nodding coz I don't speak Aramaic

I would like to have dinner with one of my ancestors from perhaps about 12000 to 20000 years ago so I could learn more about what the world was like back then (presupposing the language barrier is dealt with beforehand)

Vladimir Lenin was a Russian politician (1870-1924). Major historical figure and obviously the person that the Max Payne Vladimir Lem was based upon.

I don't see what's so funny about choosing Jesus. You joke about not speaking Aramaic, but I'm pretty sure that the other posters probably don't speak Russian or Japanese either, so speaking Aramaic is no different. Pretty sure the idea is that by the power of hypothetical magic, you'd somehow be able to have a conversation with your chosen figure. Language aside, I'd be thrilled to know what reason Jesus is any more laughable though than anyone else other than just a bigoted contempt for Christians.

No offense meant at all. Apologies. I just thought it would be funny to see who mentions a religious figure on a porn site. I have nothing against any religion. I just used the most popular person as an example. I'm agreeing with you, it would be cool if there was some hypothetical magic allowing communication

Fair point about the whole picking a religious figure for a question from a porn site forum. I was perhaps a bit overly defensive as Christians frequently get attacked rather unfairly and it annoys me as that sort of thing never gets a pass in other circumstances.

Aside from Jesus though, I could come up with so many people that I think would be amazing to meet, but would probably turn out to be disappointing. Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Michelangelo, Beethoven, William Shakespeare... The list goes on and on. Unfortunately, I think a lot of the time people tend to be disappointing when compared to the image people imagine. You see it a lot with celebrities. You love their movies, but then find out the actor is a major jerk or super scummy or something.

Agreed. Not just with famous people. Even normal people of high esteem in a particular field or career. I have personally had a few drinks with people at the top of the ladder in their professions who are put on a pedestal by everyone in that profession. They not only turned out to be disappointing, they were also huge assholes

Siddhartha Gautama probably. I would be interested to talk to a bunch of different historical figures especially scientists but I think religious figures are interesting because it would be curious to see how much reality there is to all the myths.

I think most religious founders would be interesting to talk to, regardless of if that particular religion is currently being practiced or has been long since dead, just to see what the true story is behind them. However, for personal interest alone, I'd say DaVinci.

The main problem with religious founders is that they tend to not be religious figures. A lot of what came to be our modern religions was formed well after the events we know about. The bible and Christianity for example wasn't established for quite a while after the death of Jesus, and whatever did happen was most certainly edited since just like the history of our modern day. Not that I'm an expert by any means, but I'd expect the same to be true of Islam, Buddhism, and many others as well.

Pretty much, that's why I'd be curious to talk with them. Did they actually attempt to leave a legacy or was it more of them saying "You should be nice to so-and-so, and here are my personal beliefs" and that later getting morphed into a bunch of stuff they never said or believed or whatever. Just curious about what happened between the then and now, mainly.

Personally I'm an atheist but am also a giant history nerd and just love trying to read between the lines of old texts or historical accounts and how translations have altered their original meanings.

Adolf Hitler, I would ask him, how it was to fight in ww1, and what does he think about the hypocrisy of history, and the allies (UK + France) of only declaring war to Germany when they attacked Poland, but not to the Soviet Union, wich they also attacked Poland after Germany, and they (Soviet) did commit a lot of crimes against the poles
