In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

"This is just stupid. Just when I thought Hawking was smart.


Good point. I recalled reading a paper about black hole evaporation. It was probably written by you.

Even smart people can experience brain farts.

But his comment was not saying Hawking had a brain fart. His comment called into question his intelligence in general for having a brain fart (which is debatable, see above).
