Stephen Hawking

Recommended Posts

I knew him slightly, and I once carried one of his legs (attached to his body,

carried by others) up a mountainside in France, and am more cut up about

this than I'd thought possible.

The New Yorker account of the life and career of Stephen Hawking

is riddled with errors. (I've a screenshot of their claim that he discovered

black hole evaporation in 1984, not 1974, in case they deny it.)

 

As a curiosity, this particular death went particularly unmourned on

MF. Why, for those of of you who consider yourselves intelligent?

Why? Here are options:

 

1) We're smart on <$100 pp dinners, but dumbfucks on larger questions.

2) We're not interested in larger questions of life, death, and the origin

of the Universe.

3) We're vaguely interested in the larger questions of life, but, really,

the trivial ones are so much easier to waste bandwidth on.

 

Vote, people.

I had no idea you could tell so much about people by what they don't post.

It was my take that Hawking was held in such regard, reverence, that most accolades come across as fatuous. What CAN you say about someone like Hawking that hasn't been said before and better?

I notice that you yourself have expressed no opinion of the event or of the person, FoodDabbler. Your statement

is riddled with errors. (I've a screenshot of their claim that he discovered

black hole evaporation in 1984, not 1974, in case they deny it.)

 

is all about you, not about Hawking.
