YAY! More physics that I have only the faintest chance of ever understanding!

Stephen Hawking has changed his mind about black holes, apparently. The consequence is that he loses a bet. I find this very funny; he and another physicist made a bet with yet another physicist, and now Hawking has to admit the other guy was right.
Except that only by Hawking being such a complete frickin' genius did he ever prove himself wrong - all the other guy had to do was be contrary.
This would be kind of like one of the smart socialists from my labour seminars in college admitting that I was right about something. Which would be pretty sweet.
