Rip Stephen Hawking


May have never met him, nor read his books, nor understood his theories, but today the world became a little smaller.

Sorry - I’m going to drag him down to the state of his pop culture appearances…

And… a recent interview (2014) I saw…


The world has been blessed to have Hawking in it. His disease (ALS) is bastard of a thing. I lost two friends to it, one only 3 months after diagnosis and the other years later. Both suffered greatly. For him to have ploughed on through all that (though he was fortunate to be able to afford the assistance and tech to help him) was a wonderful thing… for us. For him, maybe not so much.

RIP Stephen Hawking.
