    Stephen Hawking hospitalized

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/science...lth/index.html

    I really hope Hawking pulls through this all right.

    This man has bizarrely lasted much, much longer than he probably should have by now... still he is one of the most brilliant minds (It wouldn't be adequate to say he has one of the most brilliant minds because a mind is really all he is...) on this Earth and it'd be a tragedy to see him die now. I wish him luck...

    Your hope is but the dream of a waking man - just like Hawking's body of theories.


    unless you're a girl i guess

    Well, modern technology helped him out-survive his doctor's predictions by about 40 years so far. Hopefully he can hold on to a few more, at the very least. Seriously, the world of physics needs the man. The things his books taught me are probably some of the reasons I chose to be a physics student in the first place. It would be one helluva shame if he didn't even get to see the LHC light up for real in September.

    Good luck, Dr. Hawking.

    This is sad. It'll be a big shame when we finally loose such a great mind. Here's hoping he can pull through for a while longer.

    You know, I think it's time someone came out and admitted that the only reason anybody agrees with any of his nutty ideas is just because we're all afraid to be mean to a handicapped guy.

    Where is that damn groan button??
    He is a very important person in the history of science of these last decades, AND he is handicapped, not BECAUSE he is handicapped. What you just said is perfectly stupid and out of place.

    If you haven't been shown where the groan button is, you need an older boyfriend.
    He is a very important person in the degeneration of science from an empirical, fact-and-observation-based study into a fancyfree Mathamagic rave party. And if any of you bothered reading dissenting theories which contradict his, that wouldn't come as such a big shock to you.

    Sobriquet, don't ever talk to girls that way, man.
    Those kind of cheap shots are unclassy and pointless.

    Please leave the man with who i'm living out of your shitty conversations, you will make me a great pleasure.
    And i don't want to argue with you, as long as the "dissenting theorie" you came with in first place was a totally stupid attack on his condition, more than on his mind it self.
