I've just bought some new trainers to run away from Hawking, should he take offense at my book's title

This is actually an old picture, but it serves to illustrate the basic concept of the posting.

Congratulations with this new blog, Leonard.

Professor Hawking,

Thank you for your humorous support. It's appreciated. But there has been some suggestion that the author of this blog is in a parallel universe, being accessed in hyperspace as a malfunctioning Rube-Goldberg machine which isn't stabilizing the stringy moduli perfectly.

This blog seems genuine. Look at the url, http://susskind.blogspot.com/ is less fake sounding than http://susskindsblogphysicsforeveryone.blogspot.com/

Who would choose http://susskindsblogphysicsforeveryone.blogspot.com/ for their blog url? It's longer to type than http://susskind.blogspot.com/

In any case the thing which is fake is global warming.

It's in bad taste to make a joke about Hawking being unable to run after you. He has a serious medical condition.

anonymous,

Hawking is in a very fast wheelchair. I never mentioned him running after me, just my running away from him if he didn't like "The Black Hole War: My Battle with Stephen Hawking to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics".

Dear professor, can you confirm Bloch stands for "blocking Hawking"?. Some people say the acronym you wear in the trainers is for Felix. I don't think so. :-)
Just kidding.

Those were the same trainers you were wearing when I met you at wikipedia.

Say hi to Jenny.
