A case study of the tactics of climate change denial, in which I am the target | Bad Astronomy | Discover Magazine
This reminds me of one of my favorite skeptic jokes. Question: How many legs does a dog have if you call its tail a leg?
Answer: Four. It doesn’t matter what you call a tail, it’s not a leg.

Top five regrets of the dying | Life and style | guardian.co.uk
Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives.
