17 three threads from FYM in 05 that have stayed in your mind, for better or for worse

There are rules against referencing locked threads, in a completely unrelated matter I like this cartoon on Cox and Forkum.

18 three best compliments that someone can give you

a) Yeah, that may be but <insert stupid appeal to emotion here>
b) Skeptic!
c)


19 three most influential figures in world history, for better or worse

a) Hammurabi

c) Mohammed ~ as an historical figure.

All of these balance with time passed and how they effect the world and peoples actions within it. Without Mohammed there would be no Islam: no crusades, no moorish conquest of Spain, no inquisition etc. History would have played out entirely differently were it not for infinite number of exact conditions being met.

I would like to raise the issue of Hitler, without Hitler I think that Stalin would have filled the void just as well.

-homo sapiens...actually, on second thought, i prefer apes

fav book
-the giving tree...i don't think i need to explain why (and yes, it's partly cos i don't read much intellectual stuff compared to people here, but the giving tree is really great anyway)

for my new question....
which book do you plan on reading soon?
personally, i really want to read "reading lolita in tehran"...a lot of people have told me it's awesome.
