It certainly is. Maybe that was the problem with our referendum - too few people in the UK had played Portal. I knew the result was down to ignorance.

Sadly no. But if the cake is yellow, it will take 4 billion years before half the cake is gone. Another 4 billion before it is 3/4 gone.

And thank you for another joke that will appeal to the smaller side of the Dennis Miller Ratio.

The cake isn't a lie. The jam is a lie.

Can't be. We'll have jam tomorrow and we had it yesterday.

I saw somewhere that on his tour of the set, when they took him past the warp core, he commented, "I'm working on that...."

Stephen Hawking's ashes will be buried close to those of Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin in Westminster Abbey. A well-deserved honour.
