Today's XKCD is awesome

"So, has this sickness opened you up to looking for answers beyond science?"

"No, not really. We've groped for comfort before the slings and arrows of fortune for millenia, and I begrudge nobody their sources of solace, but science provides tools. $100 billion a year in scientific studies and medical R&D has bought us some pretty damn powerful slings and arrows of our own. The world is amazing and I'm going to live to experience more of it thanks to people who refused to gracefully accept the ineffability of reality. I find my courage where I can, but I take my weapons from science....because they work, bitches."
