If you could meet anyone from history, famous or otherwise, for whom would you buy a drink?  Would you want to join them, or would you buy it across the room, and raise your mug (or glass) to them?  You can also choose what they are served, whether it is what they are already drinking, whether it is alcohol or not, not limited to historical accuracy.  Of course, they don't have to drink it.  Assume of course, if you want to talk with them, there is no language difficulty.

i would like to have a cup of coffee with David Hume, the Scottish philosopher, who was too much of an atheist for Scotland, and too much of a theist for France.  (Enlightenment).  He was a great character who wrote his History of England (a best seller) "as a witch says her prayers, backwards" (the first volume was the latest historically).  He subscribed to an Academic skepticism, in other words, that we could not be sure of anything, but should live our life based on convention.

I somehow tend to praise scientists more than politicians. But not all scientists, definitely Oppenheimer is to be out of my circle. Smile

Too many interesting books I have read in order to name every single writer who deserves a drink for sharing his/her thoughts.
I teach history to children, and I am proud that they leave my classes permeated with sh*t and hatred to meet the real world.
I see my personal historic mission in bringing madness to juvenile masses.

I would buy a drink for Churchhill, however, I suspect he would already have one.

Ma'am, I may be drunk, but in the morning I will be sober, whereas you will still be ugly."

There are various youtube personalities that I would like to pay for a drink for them, but they don't need it, and I would not want to impose my presence upon them.  Joe Rogan, Jordan Peterson, Bret Weinstein, Glenn Loury, John McWhorter.  I also couldn't drink alcohol with them, don't do that anymore, so I couldn't drink with them unless it was coffee.
