People think that the same 1,000-calorie meal has 159 fewer calories if it comes from Subway than if it comes from McDonalds

Stephen Hawking on “The Simpsons”

In this YouTube clip, Stephen Hawking explains how he appeared on “The Simpsons”:

My daughter, Lucy, knew one of the script writers for ‘The Simpsons’.  She said he would like to write an episode involving me.  I accepted immediately because it would be fun and because ‘The Simpsons’ in the best thing on American Television.

He further says:

The episode was very funny and almost as many people know me through ‘The Simpsons’ as through my science.

If true, more people should read A Brief History of Time.
