I have a little bit of NT blood in me, so I'll permit myself to post in this thread.
My favorite scientist is I-don't-care. Maybe Newton, because some of his ideas like that equal and opposite thing line up with my independently conceived intuitions. Einstein's theories have more interesting implications, but I find some of those implications so disturbing that I can't exactly call myself a fan.
My favorite philosopher is Jean-Paul Sartre for Being and Nothingness, Nausea, and No Exit. Ayn Rand is more charismatic to me, but I think she was a lousy philosopher.
I really don't even like philosophy anymore. I only ever liked it because it gave me creative ideas and occasionally allowed me to imagine I had come up with some important truth. Right now, it mostly just inspires me to come up with the most existentially twisted scenarios imaginable, the kinds of things that make The Trial by Franz Kafka look sane and cozy.

I can't really give a favourite of either, but Dr Barry Marshall is a bawse scientist who deserves a mention in this thread.
He famously swallowed a Petri dish of Helicobacter pylori to give himself stomach ulcers to prove there was a causative link between the bacteria and stomach ulcers. He won a Nobel Prize for this 2005.
Well, my fav philosopher is Voltaire. What i like about him (besides his books and stuff) is that all portraits and even sculptures of him are smiling!
fav scientist: Nikola Tesla. The greatest inventor of all time with brilliant ideas. He should've gotten more credit.
