Cosmologist* Stephen Hawking, in Beijing for a conference on string theory (which we l-u-v luv), took a moment out of his schedule to address a group of 500 university students about this ‘n’ that. After scaring them with news that global warming will eventually turn Earth into a planet not unlike Venus, with a temperature of 250 degrees centigrade and raining sulfuric acid, he got down to the matter that most interests men at conventions: getting laid. “I like Chinese culture, Chinese food and, above all, Chinese women,” he said impishly from his wheelchair via computerized voice synthesizer. “They are beautiful.” (China Daily)
* That’s cosmologist, not cosmetologist.
