Billy Herrington, gay porn star. I'm sure ed and Lister are very familiar with his work.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Just looked him up in Wikipedia.

Lists his nationality as "European American". When was that shit added to the style book? I'd have noticed it by now if it were that way all along.

I often wondered if he had actual ALS or a variant condition: it be a diagnosis of exclusion. Not that is matters: it would be some horrendous Triple German Named Disaster that always translates into "sorry, your fucked."

He exceeded the expectations for decades, which is a grand tribute to his care.

By the powers of G00gl3z, it was a variant:

Read by the People Whom the People Who Run the Country Consistently Ignore

Apparently he refused an actual knighthood--which would have made him a "Sir"--in the 1990s as a protest over the government funding of the sciences.

The BBC obituary referred to is as "a rare form of motor neurone disease". (I suppose that ALS is a motor neuron disease?)

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-43396008

I see that the SA article goes into much more detail about the different kinds of ALS than the BBC obituary, so it doesn't really add any information.
