Something Tells Me Stephen Hawking Has Never Set Foot In A Drugstore.

Here's how he ends the 1988 classic A Brief History Of Time:


However, if we discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable by everyone, not just by a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason -- for then we should know the mind of God.

I watched a lady stand next to the greeting cards today for an hour and a half looking through the store's advertising flier. I shit you not. An hour and a half out of her life to decide if she wants to buy the Tide that's a dollar off this week. And that was after I noticed she'd already been there awhile and took note of the time. She might have been there close to two hours. Motionless, except for the turning of 12 pages.

I'm a little less confident in the ultimate triumph of human reason.
