My list:

-Da Vinci
-Alan Turing

None. What do you have against the five you mentioned?

It's close. Buddy was the more mystical of the two.

Genghis Khan, Vlad Tepes, Idi Amin, Ivan the Terrible, and Nero. And that is just the quick and dirty off the top of my head.

Re: Resurrecting the Dead

I don't think I would subject anyone I respect to resurrection.

Hitler, Nero, Stalin, Khan, and Mao

(oh, you said benefit, oops)

I will get it right eventually! Part of it will include getting all the others back on the 5th run by solving the hard problem of the brain lol! Every version has to retain the wisdom of the previous one at death recovered intact near age 13-14 of the new copy but the age restarts at 0 and at 13-14 a miracle transfer happens to merge with what is built up to that point so its not a complete repeat.

I've heard that some historians are starting to think Nero was actually less bad than most emperors of the time, and that the bad things we have heard about him were propaganda written by his successors / overthrowers in order to help legitimize their actions.

Re: Resurrecting the Dead

Caligula, Torquemada, Hitler, Stalin and my ex-mother-in-law. The idea is to put them in a cage fight to the death and I will win a fortune betting on the MiL getting 500 to 1. She's a sure thing, the others won't see it coming.
