Stephen Hawking is smarter than I

Someone gave me a copy of the New York Times' interview with Stephen Hawking (Oddly, the web version seems abridged).

In the print version of the story he talks about doing whatever you want or can and mentions that he has been in zero gravity and Antarctica.

At first I thought: "Yeah, easy for him to say; he has money. It is very possible to have no boundaries when you have fame and money."

Then I thought: "Wait a minute, are you seriously jealous of a guy with ALS, with a much worse disability?"

And then: "Well, a little bit."

Then: "What the hell is your problem?"

And finally: "Oh lord, how much time do you have?"
