    I don't think he had a huge impact, it just freaked me out meeting him and I'm sorry I posted that. Sometimes I just say the first thing that comes to my mind, I'm trying to quit. He had seriously weird eyes though. They sucked you in.

    I was just curious. I heard he was a rather small guy but had an ability to command attention on certain people.
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    Thinking back, the way I felt when I met him was like the line from that Doors song, "if you give this man a ride sweet memory will die

    I think it's difficult to say. It really depends on what you consider the most meaningful influence. For example, Napoleon is arguably one of the largest influences on modern law. Jesus would be one of the largest influences on modern morality. To give one person the title of most influential, particularly of all time, is fairly difficult and would probably depend on what you care about most.

    Oh, if I really had to choose one, I'd say Thales.

    Jesus came from traditions that were and still are influencing law on an international level. His work helped spread those traditions so it seems Nappy is trumped on that one.
