Rage, Rage against the Dying of the Light

In Memoriam: Randy Pausch (1960-2008).

"During the lecture, Pausch was upbeat and humorous…"

"Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

— Dylan Thomas

I guess that would have a little more credibility if Thomas hadn't drunk himself to death afterwards… Then again, he sure did not go gently in any possible sense of the meaning.

Anyway, nobody should have to die at that age. In fact, nobody should have to die at all.

Thanks, religious fanatics. This one's on your hands, like untold billions before.

Without your obstruction of science and your promising your followers a hundred billion hours of free internet access after death, theses kinds of things would have long since been overcome. Instead of helping scientists to fight death, you make up stupid stories how nice it will be when you're dead.

Think about that on the day of your murderous "lord." If you can think at all. Fuck you.
