If you could meet one scientist from the past or present, who would it be and why?

Einstein, hands down. He dedicated his life to figuring out questions no one else had. He also stood up for ethics and morals over his science. I imagine meeting him over a cup of tea would lead to an interesting conversation.

If you could be any animal in the wild, what would you be and why?

Orangutan. Not only do they have cool hair, but they are family oriented, intelligent and can swing around from tree to tree.
