Hawking to ride a vomit comet

Good for him.

Renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, who authored the best-selling book, "A Brief History of Time," soon will experience a brief history with weightlessness.
"As someone who has studied gravity and black holes all of my life, I am excited to experience first hand weightlessness and a zero-gravity environment," Hawking said in a statement.

I feel horribly guilty for even thinking this, let alone writing it, but the thought of hearing him exclaim something like "h-o-l-y s-h-i-t!" during the flight makes me giggle a little. But I hope he enjoys it and that the ride isn't too hard on him.
