Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has been living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, for for 51 years; he was diagnosed at age 21. ALS is the progressive degeneration of motor neurons, which leads to muscle weakness, and can result in paralysis, difficulty, speaking, breathing or swallowing, and eventual death.

I mean, like, Mimmy looks exactly like Kitty, but Kitty also looks exactly like a cat, and as we have already established, she is not a cat, and so perhaps the Whites of London town live in a universe where there’s no such thing as a cat and also the sky is made of Jell-O that tastes like arsenic waffles.
