    Have you ever seen the guy? He's a cook.

    Ok, seriously... smart people are wrong sometimes too.

    The about-turn might cost Hawking, a physicist at the University of Cambridge, an encyclopaedia because of a bet he made in 1997.
    Leave it to a physicist to bet an encyclopedia.

    I find Hawkins to be sort of creepy.

    oh, and one more thing...that site which I linked to above, keeps a huge archieve of the "Odyssey" radio shows. It is a great resource for research and the transcripts are not hard to get.

    The show is produced by the Chicago Public Radio, but I think its broadcasted nationally by NPR. It airs at 12pm central at Chicago. Most topics are extremely interesting and worth listening to. Today's topic: Shelley's Frankenstein.
