What 6 people would you have at your dinner party?

As it says on the tin. It can be literally anyone, alive or dead, famous or not, but if you could have six people around your dinner party who would it be or why? There was a similar thread about 3K people a few years ago but I thought I'd throw the net a bit wider.

My list is:

1) Sun Ce - Well I am a Scholar of Shen Zhou after all. I presume this needs no explanation here :lol:

2) John Stott - My favourite theologian, a giant of both Anglican and Evangelical theology who I would love to hear his opinions.

3) Arsene Wenger - The manager of my favourite football/soccer team. However this manager isn't just a sport expert he speaks eight languages and is known as 'Le Professeur'

4) Bernard Cornwall - My favourite author who knows a ton about history and has had a very interesting life.

5) Sean Bean - My favourite actor, however from the stories I've read about him he is as much of a hard man as the characters he plays.

6) TBC - I've got a few people I've thought about but no-one stands out to me right now so I'm thinking I might steal someone that you guys throw out there if you can come out with a great idea!

Wow, it's harder than I thought to narrow it down to just six.
But I think I'd go with~

1)Zhou Yu (just to include 1 from the 3K)
2)Siddhārtha Gautama
3)Albert Einstein
4)Aristotle
5)Leonardo da Vinci
6)Ueto Aya

This seems really interesting. The six people I'd like to have at my dinner party would be:

1) Zhuge Liang - I would love to learn from him and hear how he was such a good strategist.
2) Liu Bei - His virtue is magnificent and I think there is a lot I could learn from him.
3) Zhao Yun - I long to witness his valour and might.
4) Joey DeMaio - The creator of my favourite band.
5) Joacim Cans - The creator of my second favourite band.
6) My father - Even though he is still alive, I want to show him my interests to their full extent.

I think that's a really interesting point Kotosho. On a similar note I've decided my 6th person would be my wife. I'd want her to be able to share the experience with me!
