He is also a pop culture icon, due to his physically disabled status, his status as one of the leading scientists of our time, and his computer that he uses to talk by pressing a variety of symbols for sounds. He has been in the shows Star Trek, Family Guy, The Simpsons and Futurama among other shows. There is also a rapper, M.C. Hawking, who uses his voice synthesiser to make lyrics. Stephen Hawking, known also for his wit, takes these in good humor.
"When I hear of Schrödinger's cat, I reach for my gun." - Stephen Hawking
"I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image."
He currently is the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. This post was also held by Sir Isaac Newton.
Stephen Hawking's genius becomes even more amazing when seen beside his disability. Lou Gehrig's Disease has left him tetraplegic and only able to be mobile with a highly advanced wheelchair.
Hawking has a great sense of humor and even engages in bets and jokes with others, never letting his disability become a damper on his talent.
I think that Stephen Hawking deserves a Nobel Prize. Proof? Who needs proof?!
Must be served in a traditional dimpled English 'Pint Pot'
The Stephen Hawking is a base of mixed spirits :- Whisky, Gin, Malibu, Vodka. To serve you must up-end three bottles of alcopops (Smirnof Mule, White Lightening, WKD etc.) into the pot and let them syphon out as you consume the lot through a pink straw.
You'll be no closer to being a brillant astro and theoretical physicist but in every other aspect you'll be indistinguishable from the great man himself.
One Stephen Hawking is enough to put a lesser man in a coma.
On balance, it would be a bad idea for the Stephen Hawking to have a Stephen Hawking
