Guess Who This Is



Stephen Hawking

I saw this in a Cracked article yesterday and I have to admit that I've always known Prof Hawking as his current shrunken physical self.  I never gave any thought to what he was like before he began to be ravaged by the motor neurone disease which has claimed his ability to move, speak and swallow his drool.  Expected to die shortly after age 21 (just before this picture was taken) Hawking has lived 49 years beyond that diagnosis with no signs of stopping.

Wow. That's absolutely tragic. Poor guy.
