Stephen Hawking Says Women Are The 'Most Intriguing' Mystery

Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking recently participated in an Ask Me Anything discussion on Reddit, and he shared his perspective on many topics including women.

A member submitted the question, "What mystery do you find most intriguing, and why?"

Hawking responded, "Women. My PA reminds me that although I have a PhD in physics, women should remain a mystery."

He also disclosed that his favorite song is Rod Stewart's "Have I Told You Lately," his favorite movie is the 1962 French film "Jules and Jim," and he saw "The Big Bang Theory" online and thought it was hilarious.

On a more serious note, he confirmed his leeriness of artificial intelligence by explaining that the outcome may not be positive for humans if the same goals aren't desired.

He also talked about society's increasing wealth inequality which has been driven by those who own machines and technologies but may not be willing to fairly redistribute the financial gains.
