    Bear in mind that although you can vote, it's only advisory and the ultimate decision will be made by those in power.

    And it's Trump. Obviously.

    Kanye, for his contribution to the world in general.

    There's a strong possibility that Trump would consider it an honour.

    Putin or Assad have achieved so much.

    That made me check previous 'winners' which included a few popes, just about every US president since 1927, the Queen, Winston Churchill, Putin, Mark Zuckenberg, Uncle Tom Cobley and all. A preponderance of US nobodies mainly though.

    ...or an anagram of that.

    James Harrison is the kindest person in the world, also known as the "Man with the golden arm", a blood plasma donor from Australia. His over 1000 donations throughout his lifetime have saved over two million unborn babies from Rhesus disease.
    At the age of 14, he underwent major chest surgery, requiring 13 litres of blood.
    After surgery, he was in the hospital for three months. Realizing the blood had saved his life, he made a pledge to start donating blood as soon as he turned 18, the then-required age.

    Harrison started donating in 1954 and after the first few donations it was discovered that his blood contained unusually strong and persistent antibodies against the D Rh group antigen. The discovery of these antibodies led to the development of immune globulin based products to prevent hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN). These products, which contain a high level of anti-D antibodies are given to Rh(D) negative mothers of unknown or Rh(D) positive babies during and after pregnancy to prevent the creation of antibodies to the blood of a Rh(D) positive child. This antigen sensitization and subsequent incompatibility phenomenon causes Rhesus disease, the most common form of HDN.

    Through the donations of his plasma, Harrison has helped prevent thousands of children from dying of HDN. This uniqueness was considered so important, that his life was insured for one million dollars after this discovery and the following research based on his donations created the commercial Anti-D immune globulin commonly known as RhoGAM. His blood plasma derivatives have since been given as treatment to one in ten pregnant women whose blood could potentially become incompatible with that of their children.

    It could have been worse. They could have given it to Hitler again.

    I said earlier that Trump was the obvious choice, but I think Putin could become the most important figure of this period when we look back in years to come. Brexit, Trump, the EU....he's the winner from all those scenarios.

    On the other hand Trump's win is the biggest sign yet that those who value expertise, intelligence, progressiveness and a bolder future are losing the culture war and we as a race are moving in the wrong direction.

    Obvious choice for most people, but the news has still come as a shock to others in the U.S.
