Your Most Favorite/Unfavorite Person Living Today

  1. Sep 14, 2005 #1
    What person alive in the world do you hate or like the most? Not people you know personally, I mean well known people.

    #1 Maddox
    #2 Roger Penrose
    #3 Stephan Hawking

    I probably just like Penrose and Hawking more at the moment because I'm reading their books.

    #1 Barbra Streisand (Satan)
    #2 George W. Bush (Satan's dumn little helper)
    #3 Usama bin Ladin
    #4 Mel Gibson
    #5 Whoopi Goldberg

    I like...

    1 - Vincent Lecavalier, just an awesome hockey player. Can't wait to see him play again.

    2 - Mario Lemieux, great hockey player who brought home the Gold.

    Although he passed away, he's worth mentionning because he changed my life...

    3 - Isaac Asimov.

    * I put him third because he's not living as of today.

    Those that I hate that are living.

    1 - Mats Sundin, I never liked him on the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    2 - Pat Quinn, he won't stop signing antiques.

    3 - Eric Lindros, for not signing with the Quebec Nordiques as a rookie.

    How do you love and hate people who you don't even know personally?
  17. Sep 14, 2005 #16
    very easily. By the actions you know of that they have performed...yes its like
    "judging a book by the cover" but then again these are impersonal emotions...
    only some of them are...i really love my niece/nephew but i realy hate my dad.

    Its like americans who love/hate bush...he's your president yes but do you know him personally...some may some may not. Or if your chinese of old...how mao would have efffected your life at the grandeur. My dad favors him, because of what it met for the poor naive person...but the acts of mao's army ruined my mom's family(most were well educated)

    Perhaps impersonal emotion is bad, ie it leads to prejudices or racism...but meh its teh way our world is structured.

    The question asked for favorite people, not people that you love. I doubt that anyone here loves Maddox in any substantive sense; they just think he's a good guy with a funny, clever web site. Doesn't mean they're going to marry him.


    Favorite: Julie Andrews.

    Least Favorite: Rosie O'Donnell. I know she's pretty much disappeared from the face of the planet, but it'll take a while longer to get over her past presence.
