If you could bring any one person in history to the future to show them how they have impacted the world today, who would you bring?
Pic related, if you didn't know, it's from an episode of Dr. Who where the doctor brings Vincent Van Gogh to a museum where his paintings are on display.
This. Definitely Jesus. Once you get him acclimated to the present, have him properly inoculated against super aids, and allow him to experience air conditioning and pancakes, find a historian that speaks Aramaic and sit him down for a 1 on 1 30AD - 2016 AD "since you've been gone" history lesson.
Then take him to some mega churches and tell him about Pat Robertson and see where he goes from there. Going over the history of the vatican with him would be top tier entertainment.
>"They told me you've been money lending"
>"These images....none of these look like me."
">This is a nice city you've got here, but it doesn't seem very humble to me."
Sappho, probably. Plato? Would say Homer, but this doesn't seem like the type of thread wanting debates.
Is this a reference to the possibility that Jesus was an Apocalyptic Essene?
Because if it is, I want you to know that I laughed, and that you made me feel pretty decent about the general direction of humanity for a short moment
>Why the fuck is everybody claiming to follow me, all the while wearing shoes and not being homeless vagrants, prepare their souls for judgement?
>I was TRYING to prove to those fucking Aesthetics that I was way more hardcore, but now...fuck.
I would gently take her hand, guide her to my room and let her sleep on my bed, watching her as she dreamt. All night long I would watch her in silence, readying myself.
When she would wake up comes morning, I would say to her: "You must eat all of these" while handing her a bowl of eggs.
All of the historical inaccuracies and impossibilities with that episode aside the ending always bugged me. Van Gogh had serious daddy issues and was incredibly self deprecating because of it. For his art to be a success would mean a denigration of his father. I highly doubt taking him today to see how much his art is loved would make him very happy.
Washington. I just want the "Would the founders have intended X or Y?" conversations to stop.
Also because I'm reasonably certain he'd just start whooping the asses of damn near everyone in the U.S. government.
