Some men can actually rise above their carnal nature. I applaud their efforts and wish them great success in their continued endeavors.


In my time on this earth, I have come to the conclusion that men are really simple things at the end of the day.

Almost everything they do is to get laid.

The only thing they don't do to get laid is fish and hunt...

The best results of those things they stuff and mount.

As for some rising above their carnal natures, perhaps they have just given up on getting laid.

Now as a carnal creature myself, I have no issue with that.

So I appreciate those few men out there that are at least honest about it.



ETA... sorry mods about the off-topic post.

Thats to tough to limit to one person.

I'd love to have a long talk with several historical figures.

Martin Luther king
Eleanor Roosevelt
Lincoln

But if I could have some time with anyone from the past it would have to be my mother.


we can go with that too

not just who is our favorite but who would we like to chill with for a while.

thats a mind bender right there

imagine hanging out with Rasputin for a couple hours?
wtf right



A real mind bender is what 6 people in history you would put together around a dinner table with some wine and... stuff.

Heh.

Jesus. Son of God. Creator of everything you're aware of. What more can you ask for?

I came in thinking of Tesla, just the wealth of knowledge he had that was known of. Then there’s the things he invented and knew of that were kept from the public after he died. I can only imagine. He said he has contact with outside intelligences as well...

Then that got me thinking after I saw some other names in here, Jesus, Rasputin, Buddha.

But I would love to be that person who you’ve never heard of that works for the part of the government that doesn’t exist thats consulted for and investigates/researches/experiments with all the things that are deemed unsuitable for public consumption.

I want to be the top man at Dulce Labs, have unlimited access to every level and every nook and cranny there. I would know the Men In Black by name. Now that would be something! I want to know the truth of what’s out there. Paranormal, religious, extra-terrestrial, inter-dimensional, crypids etc. etc.

Richard Feynman. I liked his approach to life as stated in his autobiography.

sistemas.fciencias.unam.mx...

"Good. Give me one example." That was for me: I can't understand anything in
general unless I'm carrying along in my mind a specific example and watching it go.
Some people think in the beginning that I'm kind of slow and I don't understand the
problem, because I ask a lot of these "dumb" questions: "Is a cathode plus or minus? Is an
an ion this way, or that way?"
But later, when the guy's in the middle of a bunch of equations, he'll say
something and I'll say, "Wait a minute! There's an error! That can't be right!" The guy looks at his equations, and sure enough, after a while, he finds the
mistake and wonders, "How the hell did this guy, who hardly understood at the
beginning, find that mistake in the mess of all these equations?"

Excellent Choice. One of Einsteins contemporaries who was the most logical IMO.

"Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman" is well worth the read.

I'd have to say Captain James Cook.

Navigator, explorer and discoverer with few equals.

Kind regards,

Bally


He's responsible for one of my favourite comedy moments in history. There's Australia, right? It's bloody massive. Cook wanders over and says, "We're 'avin' this!"


@ TST - I've got all the usual suspects like MLK, Einstein, Shakespeare and a herd of dead musicians and writers. However, if it was possible to know, I'd nominate whoever invented optical glasses. They're unknown. If you think about it, they allowed many millions of people to see clearly. By extension, they also cleared the way for microscopes which have indirectly helped to save possibly billions of lives. Flip it over and we've got telescopes too.

Yeah, lol, that tactic didn't work out later in life.

Got told to "sod off" but didn't exit quick enough.

Yes indeed a rough ending. Then again maybe better than some deaths back then. I mean it had speed in its favour if nothing else.

I guess in today's world he would be known as man whore and probably irresponsible. But he was rather wealthy, and from my experience in life wealthy people tend to fool around a lot.

But he was pretty much single so would it really be bad?

Carl Jung ( for general human nature)
Toth/Hermes Trismegitus(for perspective on Egyptian Mystery School)
Helena Madame Blavatsky(for esoteric endeavors)
Enmebaragesi of Kish(to get some perspective of what the Sumerian world was like then)
