Stephen Hawking wrote his first Facebook post, and it's brilliant

The brunch selfies are next…

STEPHEN HAWKING JOINED Facebook a couple of weeks ago, but apart from his profile picture, he hasn’t posted a thing for his nearly 900,000 followers.

Until this afternoon, when he dropped this grenade of wisdom into the swamp of social networking inanity. Pay attention now:

I have always wondered what makes the universe exist.Time and space may forever be a mystery, but that has not stopped my pursuit.Our connections to one another have grown infinitely and now that I have the chance, I’m eager to share this journey with you.

Be curious, I know I will forever be.

Welcome, and  thank you for visiting my Facebook Page. -SH


Presumably, though, we’ll all be sick of him in a week when he starts bombarding us with Farmville invites.
