G.O.A.T.

There are about three people in my building today, and I'm running short of work. Therefore, you get this bonus Friday poll.

Remember a few years back, when there was a British TV show where they took a poll to determine the 100 greatest British citizens of all time? And then a bunch of other countries did the same shit? I was just wondering if we could rank the #1 results into an overall greatest-person-of-all-time category.

Poll #952462 THE GREATEST
