I suppose such salesmanship must be considered a talent in some way...just not in physics.<br /><br /> I'm so impressed that Hawking decided to spend his life on such a worthwhile pursuit as pondering the insides of mathematical fictions that have no insides by their own definition, and what happens to the people who have their careers fall into them. With some luck he will turn his considerable abilities to answering the OTHER incredibly pressing question of our time: Just exactly how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
