    There certainly is a weirdness to this guy.

      I watched this one yesterday, but didn’t comment on it because I don’t think I could really decide whether I liked it or not… I guess it achieved its goals, but I wish there could’ve been a lot more about his scientific discoveries in it, even though there are lots of other sources for finding out about those.

      What do you mean by “weirdness,” exactly?

        I have had this weird feeling about Hawking for a while, seem like if we live in the crazy world we seem to live in, than there are good reasons to think that perhaps Hawking is being hold by some strings from up above.
        Well well…that would be a good plot for a science fiction book, wouldn’t it?

          You mean – is he really funny, or is there something funny going on?
