RIP Stephen Hawking.
From groundbreaking work in science to his international bestseller, “A Brief History of Time,” Stephen Hawking was a renowned physicist and world-wide celebrity.
Hawking died at the age of 76 due to complications related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, 55 years after he was diagnosed with the debilitating neurological disease. He was diagnosed with the disease at the age of 21. Doctors told him he had just three years left to live, well he showed them.
You might enjoy this entertaining story about Stephen:
Hawking was reportedly a fan of strip clubs, and nightclub owner Peter Stringfellow recounted an amusing run-in with his hero.
“I went and introduced myself and said, ‘Mr Hawking, it’s an honor to meet you. If you could spare a minute or two, I’d love to chat with you about the universe,’” Stringfellow once told the Mirror.
“Then I paused for a bit and joked, ‘Or would you rather look at the girls?’”
“There was silence for a moment, and then he answered: ‘The girls’.”
It sounds to us like he knew how to have a good time while he was here.
