Dear 100 Hour Board,

What has Stephen Hawking contributed to science?

I feel like he knows a lot (and has an opinion about even more), but I also feel like his contributions do not merit the respect he is given in the scientific community.

Dear Putsy,

I guess reconciling the breakdown in physics and thermodynamics inside of black holes, devising mathematical proofs to substantiate your theories in your head because a neuron disorder has made it impossible to hold a pen or piece of chalk in your hand since you were 21, and fathering modern quantum physics is all pretty substandard these days.



Dear Dr. Feynman,

As big a fan as I am of you, when was the last time you played Poker with Einstein and Newton (to say nothing of Lt. Commander Data)?
