So folks, just for a bit of fun on a Friday afternoon...  :)

  • If you could choose to meet a person from history, who would it be?
  • Why that person in particular?
  • And what's the one 'burning question' that you would ask them?

Looking forward to finding out which historical figure you're all going to choose!

    Would be Elvis Presley in his younger age 

    Why because of his music and his genourosity to others 

    I would ask him to sing wonder of you to me and ask him to marry me 


    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will

    @kev1 That's an interesting choice. I've got a picture in my mind of some random 21st century chap (yourself obviously) turning up at Henry's VIII's court and asking that one very pertinent question!

    @janer1967 Fantastic answer! And I think I now know who is Elvis' Number 1 fan ;)

    Thats a hard one, I have two if that's OK but one of them is more of a joke.

    1, Edward Teach(blackbeard) so I can ask him where his ship and treasure was sunk 😅

    2, H.G Wells just so I can watch him work but I would have to ask him where the idea for war of the world came from

    @kev1 hi there, a lot of historians say Henry 8th wrote greensleeves for Anne Boleyn, but there's no written evidence of it.
    I love Tudor era, so looked into it before.

    I would like to meet Abraham Lincoln 
    He was an inspiration to many and his quotes are legendary. I had the chance to visit his memorial while in Washington DC and it really does impress and take your breath away. Many others like me just sit there and ponder whilst there.

    I would ask him if he thought the civil war was worth it.

    I feel like Freddie Mercury would be a fascinating person to meet, so I'll say him.

    Jesus.
    why? Because He should know the answer to my question.
    my question would be ...were The Buddhas teachings correct?

    I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist...as if you didn't know.

    Hi @Globster :) I'm very well. Thank you for asking. How are you doing?

    That's an excellent and very inspirational choice, Martin Luther King. I know you've got lots of different ambitions Globster. And I can understand why he would the natural choice for you. But what's your dream?

    @leeCal That's deep and complex! I like your thinking! :)

    My dream is to inspiring other people with disability to follow their dreams I will hope to do this by my short stories and poetry writing. I listen to speeches when I feel down they give me a lift. I also in the process of writing a disability stage play and I want a disability radio play and feature film based on a disability character who overcame some challenges life and I want to positive children show the incorporates a young boy with disability and proves people wrong
    I look forward to hearing what the scope online community think about my ideas

    Well, after much thinking, ive decided I would fetch back my parents, to ask all those questions I never asked,  as I didn't think they were irrelevant  or  important. 
    All the famous people, I would like to talk to, I can reasearch on.
