Universe actually pretty interesting

STEPHEN Hawking’s life has reminded everyone that the universe is actually pretty interesting.

Hawking, who has died aged 76, was passionately interested in the universe and all the things in it, as opposed to just watching telly or arsing about on Facebook.

Office worker Nikki Hollis said: “He had a lot of challenges in his life, most importantly being very clever which generally means you get picked on a lot and nobody likes you at school.

“Still he pressed on with his passion for all the deep stuff – the nature of time, man’s place in the universe, the purpose of Jeremy Hunt. And when you think about it, those things really are more interesting than Celebrity Love Island or David Beckham’s new scarf range.

“Go out and look at the sky tonight. It’s absolutely massive.”
