    I've been wondering these last few days if he didnt know it was coming. He published a paper what, 2 weeks ago? The paper was brilliant and had some amazing insight, but lacked the maths to back a lot of it up. It was more of a paper of where we should be looking for answers and what he saw as possibilities. Also is hes right then we already know how the universe began and its all actually very simple (You know except the 11 dimensional space/time maths part..).

    Not even close.

    Hawking was 11 when Einstein died.

    Hawkings accomplishments were post war, Einsteins were pre/during the second world war

    I fucking hate steven hawking. He was a right smug little spacker in his chariot, pretending to be the most preeminant scientist of his generation when in reality he wasnt even in the top ten. Yeah sure my only achievement was remembering my password for my email account consistently but fuck him. Want to impress me steven? Be a bus driver






    All jokes aside, he was a top top bloke and did some solid science. Nowhere near the Einstein of our era though. That's just madness talking.

    This has been one hell of a week for media. Losing 3 big names in TV/film/radio.

    Unrelated: Barbara Bush reported as being in failing health and refusing any further hospital care.

    I guess not.

    Anyways, I had just noticed this weekend that the prize on "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me" was no longer Carl Kassell's voice on your answering machine, but any cast member, as he was no longer with the show. I guess he had retired because of Alzheimer's, now dead at 84.
