Hawking a hoax 

Be the 1st to vote.

Update: New ALS drug? Has Stephen Hawking been using this drug the whole time? Coincidence or deliberate that Hawking is now in a new cosmo nonsense series?


In one of the most blatant cases of (simulated) disabled abuse, we have another silly story.

Leave it to renowned physicist Stephen Hawking to be the bearer of incredibly interesting yet wildly depressing news about the state of the world. In his forthcoming documentary for BBC, Expedition New Earth, Hawking predicts that planet Earth will only survive for the next 100 years. 


I hope no one is paying attention to this simulated psientist. If people really thought about it (and they don’t) they might ask has does someone with ALS survive so long? What is the secret?

Who wrote the software to convert cheek twitches into complex written theories? That guy is the real genius.

Sometimes I think we will make it off this planet before everyone realises that we can’t.

Hawking has a rare early-onset, slow-progressing form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) that has gradually paralysed him over the decades. He now communicates using a single cheek muscle attached to a speech-generating device.


The average life expectancy of a person with ALS is two to five years from the time of diagnosis. However, it varies greatly:

  • Over 50 percent of people with ALS live more than three years.
  • Twenty percent live five years or more.
  • Ten percent live 10 or more years.
  • Five percent will live more than 20 years
