Louis CK.

I don't have the mental capacity to read books on politics and philosophy, so the only thing I can do to make myself appear interesting is to quote crude jokes and pass them off as my own. It appeals to a very limited demographic.

Jesus, Slavoj Zizek, Terry Eagleton, John Terry, Kierkegaard, St Augustine, Karl Marx, Noam Chomsky, Voltaire, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King.

I like to think I have a wide range of influences, although I haven't stopped reading/searching, so next year these could all be completely different.

No capitalizations; improper use of punctuation; implies that internet language differs from real language.

I know. He advocated government involvement in education (and healthcare?) among other things. However, I believe that people misquote him regarding some statements that he attributed to the influence of special interests under a mercantilist system.
Anyways, enough about Adam Smith, I don't want to the discussion to degenerate into capitalism bashing/sucking up.

You're using the semi-colon incorrectly; those aren't sentences.

There's no need to use semi-colons in that list because the items in the list do not include commas, therefore commas should be used to separate each item.

Let's go way back first.. To Mr. Wizard. I LOVED Mr. Wizard. Likely started my burgeoning interest in the sciences.
Others would include:
Stephen Jay Gould
Carl Sagan
Isaac Asimov

And more currently, Richard Dawkins.
