Friendly Free-For-All Question: If You Were Stranded on a Deserted Island....

Here's an ancient query; if you were stranded on a deserted island....
Which great thinker would you want to accompany you and why?
I'll go first.
Hands down, I'd take Nikola Tesla (during his prime, of course.) It was a three-way tie with Einstein and Samuel Clemens, but being a female, I find Tesla far more pleasant on the eyes(insert giggle here.) I find his skills in engineering to be quite useful in a situation like this. Also, the fact that he was a friend of Clemens' helps a lot. How cool would it have been to hear their conversations!
Okay, it's your turn.
