A message for someone special

For: You know who you are

The popup you see when you mouseover the original comic reads: "Having a positive attitude is almost tautologically good for your mental health, and extreme stress can hurt your immune system, but that doesn't mean you should feel like shit for feeling like shit."

And if you haven't read the XKCD comics online, grab a cup of coffee and go check them out.  You won't be disappointed (although you may need to go back a couple of weeks to get past the guest posts and 5-minute comics).

These are great. I had not previously seen this strip. I love today's interpretation of appropriate food to serve at the announcement of the arsenic-based lifeforms.

Speaking of arsenic-based lifeforms, remember that Star Trek predicted that such lifeforms should exist. The old show about the Horta featured a silicon-based lifeform. Just as arsenic is one down from phosphorus, silicon is one down from carbon. The Next Generation also hit upon the concept in the "ugly bags of mostly water" episode.

Whatever brings us closer to the ideals in Star Trek is a good thing.
