    RIP Stephen Hawking

    Passed at 76, that a good age, even for someone who has lived with ALS for 50 years.

    Now go and tell God he was wrong.

    RIP My brain hero

    A proper hero who should be celebrated is Hawking.

    All this Ken Dodd nonsense pissed me off, a dirty old pervert who the press were too weak to do the job on. The stories will come out one day.

    Saddened when I saw the news this morning. For someone not expected to live past 25 he did well.

    Professor Hawking would have found this funny. He had a wicked sense of humour

    He will definitely understand the mean of the Universe now. RIP.

    I've even had to re-order his book "A brief history of Time" as I lent it to a friend years ago and she never gave it back.

    Price has shot up

    I went to a lecture of his once, was supposed to go to a maths and statistics lecture, but saw Hawking was doing a lecture and had to sneak in. It was fascinating. He did it in a way that allowed you to understand, even if you couldn't understand the details

    I might get a copy ordered, supposed to be the biz

    One of the very greatest human beings of the last century, and of all time.

    Is that based on anything more than him having funny hair and teeth and being a comedian from the 70s ?

    I'd suggest you look more closely into why no venue in Liverpool would host his Christmas show this year. The Philharmonic cancelled it due to "unforeseen circumstances".

    This was a massive money spinner for them so a big loss but had to be done. People will not comment on the record, but the accounts they tell off the record are not pleasant at all.
