Here's a bit of #truth for you, I mentioned the wisdom of #IsaacAsimov and added that he died of an #AIDS related illness and was met with incredulity from a mostly American audience...!?Wiki excerpt

)Illness and death
Asimov suffered a heart attack in 1977, and had triple bypass surgery in December 1983. When he died in New York City on April 6, 1992, his brother Stanley reported heart and kidney failure as the cause of death. He was survived by his second wife, Janet, and his children from his first marriage. Ten years after his death, Janet Asimov's edition of Asimov's autobiography, It's Been a Good Life, revealed that the myocardial and renal complications were the result of an infection by HIV, which he had contracted from a blood transfusion received during his bypass operation. Janet Asimov wrote in the epilogue of It's Been a Good Life that Asimov's doctors advised him against going public, warning that the anti-AIDS prejudice would likely extend to his family members. Asimov's family considered disclosing his condition after his death, but the controversy that erupted when Arthur Ashe announced his own HIV infection (also contracted from a blood transfusion during heart surgery) convinced them otherwise. Ten years later, after most of Asimov's doctors had died, Janet and Robyn Asimov agreed that the HIV story should be made public.
Rest well good Professor, we hope to live up to the future you wrote (obviously we don't want 50,000 years of struggle, but, if 'they'
are unable to understand the mind of man, 'They'
will keep applying the lash...Oh, yeah, I guess he knew ;0)
