Today's XKCD has me wanting to say "You're doing it wrong." Without taking away from the emotion of the piece--and Randall's willingness to take on big, hard, emotional issues, I have a problem with his alt text "My usual approach is useless here, too".
I have news for you, which it should not be...You will die. As will everyone around you. Hopefully in the right order--from oldest to youngest, at ripe old ages--but still--you and everyone around you will die. Not to be morbid, but you should be prepared, at least on some level, for death at all times.
Without being trite, if death isn't something your usual approach can't handle, you're doing it wrong.
