A great mind moves to the next plane of existence...

Stephen Hawking dead at 76

A great mind, a sense of humor, a common touch and a will to overcome obstacles. Indeed a fine example of a rare human being.

Seconded. The difference between Stephen Hawking and Jim Bowen dying on the same dame day = I still owe(d) Jim Bowen $700. Guess I can scratch that off the chalk board. And use some of the money to buy Stephen's last book.

Jim Bowen is definitely a Brit thing. Had to Google him, and still don't have a clue. ;) :D But hey, maybe the $700 ($s or pounds?) will not make it into the estate, so you are home free unless someone from the estate reads this. (I would say something about the $700 disappearing into a black hole, only to reappear as Hawking radiation 10 million years from now, and the estate wants interest, but I won't say that.) 5555
