After years of talking about nonsense like black holes and theory of relativity and blah blah blah, Stephen Hawking finally said something useful this weekend: Zayn Malik is still in One Direction. One of the world’s smartest men (not Zayn) appeared at the Sydney Opera House in holographic form this weekend, and he was asked, “What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?” It’s an important question, with an equally significant answer.
“Finally, a question about something important,” he said. “My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay close attention to the study of theoretical physics. Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes. It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another different universe. And in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction.” (Via)
Hawking is clearly trolling us. He doesn’t care about Zayn still being in One Direction. He’s sucking up to tween girls so they’ll cross Zayn’s face off from their posters and replace it with his. Before long, Stephen Hawking will be in every middle school locker in America.
