When I lost religion, soured on the the world, and started looking forward to death. I've never regained my faith, though I don't really look forward to dying as living has its perks. Highs with the lows and all.

The same way everyone else does... we die. But with marginally less comfort depending on the strength of your resolve, rationality, and character.
So the world goes on, we all end up statistics, but you can't let that cripple your ability to live until that happens.

My girlfriend and I sat on a citizen's development advisory committee. We went out for drinks a couple of times to vent about the crazy landlords who we had to deal with on the committee, and realized that we were a match made in political hell.
