    I have no idea. But it spilled over on the Michael Jackson thread, curious who you'd put on the list.

    Obama? Jackson? Ali? Michael Jordan?


    Let's go with living folks, plus Michael Jackson.

    When Queen Elizabeth dies, I get her spot, we need a chick on the list. Would defer to Madonna if necessary.

    Oprah should be on there somewhere.

    I agree. Would remove Will Smith and insert Oprah. Although I much prefer Mr. Smith.

    Thanks, Inky. Also, assuming he'd still count, wasn't there some study a couple years ago where Michael Schumacher was like the most recognized person in the rest of the world?

    I'm not sure powerful and important is the same as famous....I wonder if you flashed photos of Ahmadinejad and Putin and Kim Jong Il to a few thousand random people around the world, if they would be instantly recognizeable.

    Arnold Schwarzeneggar, on the other hand.... 8)
