Who are the greats of our time?
I like searching up famous rich people who are around my age and every time I see them, I compare and think: "man, why am I not like that?"
Matthew Inman creator of the Oatmeal learned computer programming at high school and he was employed during the time he was at high school. By age of 29, he's the owner of a web site that sees in half a million in revenue.
Sean Parker was also a genius in computer programming and he founded napster. He hacked into a fortune 400 company when he wasn't even 18. Now, he's a billionaire.
Who, in your opinion, are the greats of our time and what are your thoughts on them?

Yawn. Get back to me when they're worth $50 billion and have the most influential nonprofit org in the world.

Yes, I think it is safe to say that anyone who uses the phrase "searching up" while referring to Sean Parker and other shallow geeks as "greats" because they made tech fortunes will amount to little.
Are you sure you are on the right site? Isn't there some game you could be playing, with a suitably dwarfish avatar?

Sondheim, Roth, Scorsese, Streep, Pacino...

I am not sure about Al Pacino anymore. Sad to say. It seems easier for women to age in cinema? He, Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford are all geriatric and not interesting. Clint Eastwood lost it with the chair episode. Streep, Mirren and Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet ... luxurious. Even Tracey Ullman. Great actress and comedienne.

Janet Jackson is a legend and an icon. Pop stars, male and female, still reference her as an inspiration, mimick her style and dance moves and remake her songs. As for her record deals, she LEFT Virgin once the landmark $80 million record deal she signed in the '90s was complete. Also, she ASKED to be let out of her Def Jam contract, but not before giving them a #1 album. So, you see, no one fired her, nitwit. And you're right--she's always had a round bubble butt, and she was known for having one when Kim Kardashian was still just a kid running around in her mommy and daddy's backyard with a pacifier, and J-Lo was just a young, unknown Puerto Rican chica in the Bronx.
Janet will record when she's ready to record, sweetie. She does not need a label, but she could get signed to one whenever she's ready because she's JANET-ACADEMY-AWARD-NOMINATED-100-MILLION-RECORDS-SOLD-EVERY-TEEN-ACT-OF-TODAY-ON-HER-JOCK-FANS-ALL-OVER-THE-WORLD-$150-MILLION-WORTH-MTV-ICON-MORE-BILLBOARD-AWARDS-THAN-ANY-OTHER-ARTIST-SIGNER-OF-TWO-OF-THE-BIGGEST-RECORD-DEALS-IN-HISTORY-MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON.

Kevin Puts - his work is amazing. The Pulitzer committee agrees.
87% of those reading this have no idea who he is nor what he does.

Paris Hilton. Her name is known around the globe without doing anything. Janet Jackson had to perform to get known, so she's an also-ran way down the list. Paris doesn't have to do any work to be known. She's one of the greats of our time and puts Janet to shame.

"the greats"? OP, those two you listed are not "the greats."

Matt Inman is a right-wing Republican. He's apparently an extremely unpleasant person in real life.
