“What makes human beings unique? Some say it’s language or tools. Others say it’s logical reasoning,” Hawking said, teeing it up. “They obviously haven’t met many humans.”

I really want to watch Stephen Hawking do an hour-long standup special on HBO. You can watch the livestream of the announcement below.

Update 12:53pm: Hawking is dropping zingers left and right. On what we should do if we find intelligent alien life: “We should hope that they don’t find us.”

On what he expects alien life to look like: “Judging by the election campaign, definitely not like us.”
