Stephen Hawking with Felicity Jones & Eddie Redmayne at the London premier of the biographical movie, “The Theory of Everything”
Many were saddened by the death this week, of Professor Stephen Hawking. There is some comfort, though, in the memory that Stephen Hawking was a really funny guy. Take this interview with John Oliver:
JOHN OLIVER: First off, congratulations on being the first subject of our, “Great Minds”, series. Be honest, is this the single greatest honour you have ever received?STEPHEN HAWKING: Yes.
JOHN OLIVER: Good. It's a little hard to read your tone of voice. When you say that, are you being sarcastic?STEPHEN HAWKING: Yes.
JOHN OLIVER: You’ve stated that there could be an infinite number of parallel universes. Does that mean that there is a universe out there where I am smarter than you?STEPHEN HAWKING: Yes. And also a universe where you’re funny.
Here's the entire interview:
Interesting to see John Oliver abandon his irreverent tone & use of expletives (mostly).
