He was an inspiration throughout my life. Very sad day.

Rest in Peace, Professor Hawking.

RIP Professor.

I loved how he could maintain his humor in spite of his difficulties. He was great in his cameos on ST/TNG and Big Bang Theory.

I was thinking of that same scene on the Simpsons. R.I.P. Professor Hawking.

Fuck him.
Once a good scientist then an anti- semetic prick babbling about aliens.  If it wasnt for the wheel chair he would have been shit canned a while ago.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Anti-Semitic? Got links? I was unaware of that...although, if a guy that smart has a problem with Jews, he might be onto something. lol

He declined to visit Israel.

Yeah. I looked. I think while boycott of Israel in favor of the "Palestinian cause", whatever that cause may be, is often times a sign of an anti-semitic motive, I don't really see anything that would make me feel comfortable calling him overtly a Jew-hater.

It was a dumb move, imo, but I don't think it rises to 'Fuck him' as a parting thought on his life.

His was a protest against Israeli policy more than old fashioned Jew-hatin':

“Had I attended, I would have stated my opinion that the policy of the present Israeli government is likely to lead to disaster.”
"I have to say, it sure does look like somewhere I would really, really like.  Except for the cold of course.  But, I'll bet I could adapt to that. ”

Its an area I have no shades of grey about.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

^My Mom agrees with you. "You must support Israel no matter what." So I know what you're saying. And for the most part I do.

I don't think Hawking hated Jews though.

I read this article today about him. It mentions he gave an interview on Israeli TV.

He's said things in the past that I totally disagree with. But I can respect the guys scientific mind. I don't agree with everything he's said about the universe, but he had a gift for sure with his mind.
