djkutch: Obamacare has laid waste to the man. Sad, really.
Mugato: I respect Stephen Hawking, read his books and acknowledge that he's a fark-ton smarter than I am but he's gone a little batty lately with the alien and time travel stuff. Unless he's just farking with us.
Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: djkutch: Obamacare has laid waste to the man. Sad, really.He's just lucky he was born in the US. Under the UK health system, he would have been left to die of exposure or something.
Three Crooked Squirrels: Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener:I just checked your profile for the first time in awhile, and you currently have 4321 greenlit links. Unless you manipulated that somehow, that is totally cool.In your honor.
bingethinker: When is he going to send out the invitations?
NFA: I love how Hawking believes that he's such a significant figure in physics that a time traveler would want to meet him when that traveler would have all the events in history to occupy their time.
sxacho: Lord up in of this time biatch.

malaktaus: Time travel raises interesting questions about free will. Everyone is of course aware of the grandfather paradox; you can't, presumably, go back in time and kill your grandfather before your father is conceived. But consider the opposite situation: what if you are your grandfather? You would have no choice but to go back in time and bone your grandmother. Of course no one showed up; the party isn't a part of their past. That doesn't mean time travel is impossible. Let's say, hypothetically, that Hitler was a time traveller. 26th century Hitler lives in a world in which WW2 and the Holocaust are a part of history, and if he refused to take his part in history the consequences would be impossible to predict, and potentially terrible. He would have no choice, therefore, but to go back in time and do his part, both to preserve his own existence and to preserve the world that he knows. Time travel could be possible, but perhaps not for everyone; it may be that it is either impossible or absolutely required, depending on the individual. Going to Hawking's party would most likely not be in the cards.
Satanic_Hamster: He should at least have had a few Doctors show up.
