  • 29.8% - Richard Branson 329
  • 19.3% - Bill Gates 213
  • 1.9% - Carlos Slim 21

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I'm not allowed to answer this...


... but I will say that Zuckerberg would be closest to my age. (And has a harem already, probably.)

I would spend the entire time attempting to convince Gates he's endorsing the wrong development plan regarding Windows... and that he's a pervert for taking me on an intimate cruise.

Bottom line, only Bill Gates can plug something in my expansion port.

Ah, nothing like a Thursday morning pang of homophobia. Once that passed, I chose Buffet, figuring he's old enough that he won't...want to...as often. :P

Is "None of them, I'll explain in the comments" not an option today? Just curious. I'd rather be poor than be an object to be used, paid and discarded by a wealthy businessman.

Depends on what an "intimate companion" is expected to do. If it demands more than time spent together in talk and philosophy, meals and drinks, I'm a no show.

I feel like we had the same morning....haha. Also I think he'd be fun to talk to and maybe I could tire him out by sending him into one of his debt crisis rants ;)

For $10 million I take Zuckerberg, if he comes near me I kick his azz. Then again he would probably get off on it. I think a tip is in order.

I choose Richard Branson. If I'm going on an intimate trip with someone for 2 weeks, I don't want to be bored. He may be older than Mark Zuckerburg, but I think he would be the most fun of the group. Besides, based on the commercials the "intimate" parts would be over really fast, so there wouldn't be a need to fake anything. ;)

Considering Richard Bronson is the coolest of them all, and there would most likely be a plethora of female companions and awesome adventures, he'd be the most fun. I think he's a virgin any way.

I refused to answer the poll, even though I'm female and it didn't trigger any homophobic concepts. Sell out the stuff, not yourself!

I'm pretty sure your offer would be considered an offer to solicit prostitution and is against the law Mr. Billionaire.

Can you say, ALL OF THEM?

Sure I may be a guy, but I'll do just about anything for that kind of money.

If however, it was televised or recorded in some fashion...well I would still do it, but I'd be less happy about it.

Not sure why any of them would have to buy friends, but the word intimate does not equate to sexual in nature. Without the wording "sexually intimate companion", intimate is more of these definitions:

Definition of INTIMATE

1
a : intrinsic, essential
b : belonging to or characterizing one's deepest nature
2
: marked by very close association, contact, or familiarity (intimate knowledge of the law)
3
a : marked by a warm friendship developing through long association (intimate friends)
b : suggesting informal warmth or privacy (intimate clubs)
4
: of a very personal or private nature (intimate secrets)


Worse case scenario, without a contract to describe expectations, you get a free cruise with an interesting companion. It might even turn into a good friendship. Unless they drop you off on a deserted island.

I chose Branson because he seems like the most interesting person to get to know.

10 million for 2 weeks isnt enough, maybe for like a 3 day weekend

and the obvious answer is Warren Buffet because he is old and your best chance of minimizing too much horribleness
