The Three Most Important People in History
If you had to name the three most important people in history, who would you choose?
[Think about it.]
My picks were Avraham, Gutenberg, and one of the Founding Fathers (I know it's a cop-out to not actually pick one, but I am not sure which one had the most impact on the perpetuation of democracy). Below is the list I compiled, mostly from responses to my away message. It's interesting to see people's three picks together, but this is just a list of all the picks, for convenience's sake. Asterisks indicate the person was chosen more than once. (It should also be noted that the people who responded were a pretty narrow group of people, for what it's worth.)
Alexander the Great
Queen of Sheba
Martin Luther King Jr.
the guy who invented the husband pillow
The guy who looked at wheat and thought "hmm how about making bread?"
