Dinner with Darwin

A charming piece here. Charles Darwin is your dinner guest, dinner table conversation is inevitably interesting, and like all good wise men and women visiting prophets of enlightenment, gifts are brought. A selection of scientific dinner guests were asked:

What would you ask him?
What would you bring him?
How would you describe the evening?
What book would you bring him?
What film would you show him?
What would he think of the fact that his ideas and personality are under attack from Intelligent Design and creationism?

I'm reluctant to start memes and foist work on already busy bloggers, but if anyone feels moved to answer (mine are here), I'll post the links here.

This isn't really a proper meme when it is so interesting!
