    Which of the following historical figures do you
    think did something positive for the world - changed something for the better that no one else was likely to change?

    Are you making all these silly polls for some class project? I think youre pushing it with these never ending slew of polls.

    PF users love polls. I liked the poll asking if you have ever responded to a poll. An even better question might have been "would you ever respond to a poll?" I wonder how many people would answer "No".

    All the poll options are already well known! :confused:

    These polls dont even make any sense. You are comparing apples and oranges here.

    These people cover a vast range, how can you compare Beethoven to Karl Marx?

    The idea is that you think about what sort of person most impresses you.

    That would vary by category.

    It's a toss up between Gutenberg and Columbus.

    I think it was "Do you answer polls?" That was one of my threads wayyy back.

    I think I need to create another poll. Something about fish.

    Yes!!! I thought it was hysterical, if you responded, then you couldn't say no.

    I think you should. :biggrin:

    I thought so also, but I picked Caesar anyway. I don't know how he became emperor since he was basically the Ralph Nader of ancient Rome.

    Really, all of the candidates were historically significant. Good or bad, they shaped what our society is today. I have to vote for all or none, and since I'm too lazy to click that many buttons...

    Ok, now you have to write a 10 page report on why Julius Caesar is better than each of the others mentioned.
