xkcd: Positive Attitude

This made me sad, but also kinda cheerful. Click through for the rest of the comic. Apparently, Randall Munroe, the author of the brilliant nerd comic xkcd is dealing with a serious family illness. I've been reading his stuff for years. Weird that you can worry about someone you don't know and will never meet. Hoping that things work out OK for them, whatever it is that is going on.

This is my favorite xkcd strip ever: it involves velociraptors!

  1. Really the amount of patient-blaming you hear in the culture at large is kind of amazing. It's always especially striking to me when someone who "did everything right" gets sick...in contrast to the people who deserve to suffer for their sins, I guess.
