A To Do List:

People to meet through time travel
...and punch in the face.


In alphabetical order by last name (when applicable):

Alighieri, Dante
Crowley, Aleister
Duchamp, Marcel
Edison, Thomas
Ford, Henry
Freud, Sigmund
Hawthorne, Nathaniel
Hubbard, L. Ron
Kellogg, John Harvey
Kroc, Ray
LaVey, Anton
Marquis de Sade
Miller, Arthur
Nietzsche, Freidrich
Nixon, Richard M.
Parsons, Jack
Pollock, Jackson
Pope Benedict IX
Pope John XII
Pope Leo VIII
Pope Leo X
Pope Pius II
Thoreau, Henry David
Wilde, Oscar
Warhol, Andy
These are not people that I hate, merely people that I think could have used a good smack in the chops.

I don't really hate anyone, this is simply a list of some of my least favorite people throughout history that I compiled for my own amusement. Since it has amused everyone who has read it, I thought I might share it here.

Please don't take this seriously and PLEASE know that I'll respect your opinions, even if they differ from mine.

Worry not! I don't have any desire to punch people who simply like these people. If you are not on this list, you are in no immediate danger.

For instance, many of my very close friends are Catholics, and they are all wonderful people. I realize that there are quite a few Popes on the list, but if you do some research on those particular ones, you will probably understand why I think they needed a fat lip.

LOL

Just curious but, why Dante Alighieri? From my perspective his poetic view on love and the afterlife, as well as his views on religion during his time, are amazing.

Well, it has always frustrated me that so much content from his work is assumed to be biblical. This leads to people not accepting the Tora's historical significance or placing religious faith in ideas that were intended as fiction.

I'm coming to terms that it might not be fair to place responsibility on his shoulders, so he may be removed from the list, as I have always respected his artistic vision, despite my frustration with some of its effects.

BAHAHA! That was AMAZING. I'm one of those sick people that enjoyed Shakespeare as a kid, so I wouldn't want to hit him, but I can thoroughly appreciate the desire to do so. I need to watch more Blackadder, apparently.

Thanks!

Freidrich Nietzsche? Before I start to prattle on about how Nietzche was not a Nazi, I would like to ask what your reasoning is behind that one, if only for certainty on the subject. I see no need to waste your time with that if it just so happens to be irrelevant.

Oh, I know he wasn't a Nazi. They burned his books! Nazi's don't belong on the list since they deserve worse than a fat lip.

I just am not a big fan of his philosophy.

Oh, i wish you would punch Jackson Pollock in the face. And Thomas Edison. *sighs wistfully*

I wouldve also added the whoever rejected Hitler from the fine arts academy in Vienna. Sure there would have been a couple more terrible artworks out there, but then maybe if they had let him in, he wouldnt have gone into politics...

I hold Crowley and LaVey and you punch them. Then I get to watch the fight with Wilde (and I'm sorry to say that my bets are on him).
I'm feeling a bit reminded of Roals Dahl's Uncle Oswald for some reason, both by this and by the other to do-list. ;)

You'd bet against me in a fight with Oscar Wilde!?! You've clearly never seen me fight, madame! My friends and I engage in our own version of Fight Club whenever we have the opportunity. I may look a bit slight, but the Irish blood is not to be underestimated.

And anyway, who COULDN'T beat up Oscar Wilde? I imagine he'd be easily defeated by a group of field mice. He'd be a devilish opponent in a debate, no doubt, but I feel his bark would be infinity worse than his bite. His only hope would be that he'd accidentally stick me in the eye with his damned peacock feathers, rendering me blind and in searing pain.

LOL

But seriously, thank you for these comments; I have tremendously enjoyed them. ^_Q

Oscar Wilde may have been effeminate, but the fact that the Marquess of Queensbury backed down from a fight with him should be a warning. Of course Wilde went on to loose the more important court battle with the Marquess and I always want to slap him for staying, thinking that everybody was his friend and that nothing could possible happen to him. How can anyone be so bright and so naive at the same time. It always makes me cringe when I read a biography of Wilde.
And you should never underestimate the manstopping power of a well-placed peacock feather.

Ford and Edison, yes! I'm a Tesla fangirl.
Why Pollock made a career out of painting I don't know. His paintings look like the piece of cardboard I use to stop paint getting on my desk.

But why Oscar Wilde? He was crazy awesome.

I don't really hate Oscar Wilde, I actually love his work. He was just super affected and more than a bit creepy. Prancin' around with peacock feathers in his lapels, having sex with little boys all the time...

Oy! Captain!

I think Kellogg should also receive an Enema, since he was so very fond of them.

Also why stop at Jack Parsons, add Jack the Ripper and Jack Sparrow to the list (I retract sparrow because Sparrow will probably like it).
Nietzsche was only good for inspiring the creation of a Sub Human species with Bone Blades coming out their forearms (and stick’s up their asses,thankyouverymuchTyrAnasazi).

I vote for your favor in adding an additional slap to those two in particular.

Whenever Freidrich Nietzsche wrote about "that majestic blond beast," he was not referring to Hitler's misguided ideals of a "master race," but to *Lions.*

... certain relatives of his, however, were Nazis, & misconstrued his works...

As I recall, Kellogg gave himself yogurt enemas regularly. He would have been hard pressed to have been creepier. lol

Jack the Ripper isn't on the list because, like Hitler, he deserved worse than just a punch in the face.

And Jack Sparrow isn't on the list because I'd need more than a time machine to meet him! ^_~

I didn't know about the yogurt, I think he's right up there on my list of nightmare appearances now.
(along with Heath Ledger as the Joker in that Nurse Dress)

You know, you are absolutely correct about the Ripper, I retract that statement.

Oh and since Johnny will be reprising his role as good ol' Captain Jack for Pirates 4, you might not need a "go back in imaginary time machine" either ;)

I love your lists, you have me wanting to do my own!

Thanks for sharing Captain!

Oh, and even if Jack Sparrow were real, I wouldn't want to punch him. I'd much prefer to share a bottle of rum and start a bar fight with him. Not fight him in a bar, mind you. Just fight other people in a bar while he does the same.

That got a bit convoluted.

I think Alexander Graham Bell should have been on the list, as well.

Well, I've yet to decide for myself if Bell actually committed any illegal acts in patenting his phone, or if the wrong was only on the part of his lawyers. He was out of town when his lawyers filed his patent, so culpability has always been unclear.

Nevertheless, there really isn't any evidence that he was a massive douche bag in his personal life like Edison was, so I probably wouldn't want to punch him even if he did rip off Elisha Gray. Bell's mother and wife were deaf and his father and grandfather devoted their lives to the study of speech. He was driven be genuinely good motives in his scientific pursuits. Edison was only interested in money and he ripped off people at every opportunity, so I don't put Edison and Bell in the same boat.
