Thanksgiving is primarily a North American tradition its impact reaches across the globe. The stuffed turkey dinner, Black Friday sales and other traditions associated with Thanksgiving are starting to make an appearance in many other parts of the world.

We wanted to do something a bit different for a Thanksgiving post so we thought, who would a geek want to have over for Thanksgiving dinner?

Of course we would all want different people to join us for different reasons. And yes, we tried to stick to real people.

Who would you invite? Here is our selection.

Galileo Galilei


There are so many famous scientists from the past that we’d like to talk to but our choice is Galilei. With him we could pick almost any topic in science and he could carry on a conversation about it, whether it be physics, astronomy, or something else. see more on Galileo Galilei

Stan Lee


He’s the co-creator of many of our favorite comic book heroes and a hero himself to many. Stan Lee helped bring to life Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, and many others. Just imagine the questions you can ask if he joins you for Thanksgiving dinner. see more on Stan Lee

Steve Jobs


Finally, we’d like to see Steve Jobs show up for Thanksgiving dinner. If he would even have accepted the invitation, he may just show up to insult our cooking skills, but that’s okay, as long as we can chat some about Apple, Pixar, NeXT and more. see more on Steve Jobs

Mayim Bialik


Oh, there is so much to talk to Mayim about. Like, what was it like working on Blossom, what about the guys in The Big Bang Theory, what does it take to get a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, and more. Most importantly though, how does she pronounce her name? see more on Mayim Bialik
