Stephen Hawking Gets Real

New York Times: What is your I.Q.?
Hawking: I have no idea. People who boast about their I.Q. are losers.

New York Times: How can we know if you qualify as a genius physicist, as you are invariably described?
Hawking: The media need superheroes in science just as in every sphere of life, but there is really a continuous range of abilities with no clear dividing line.
