Sandra Aamodt: Why dieting doesn't usually work
As if willpower is a good solution. First off, the very idea of free will defies science. Second, every piece of evidence in the world says that idiotic willpower strategies like "just say no" have close to zero success rates. Don't be ignorant. Simply because outliers exist does not mean they are examples to be obeyed.

If the cure for mortality is found within your lifetime, would you go for it and become immortal?
To say that death is natural or that it is a final experience is to rationalize that which you must reconcile with your mind. All of our romanticised ideas about death result from the need we feel to get over that primal fear of the void. I don't prescribe to the view that a rationalized belief can be a surrogate for the truth. Death is most likely an end, a nothing, and nothing more than nothing. I fear it, for it can rob me of everything good.
