The more I learn about modern medicine the more I conclude it takes about a million things working right to keep us alive for the next 10 seconds. Much less 80 years.

The laundry list of ways things can go haywire is appallingly long. Gives one the sensation of hanging by the merest of threads while buffeted by a hurricane. And yet the evidence all around us is it mostly works most of the time. Perhaps, as in so many things, we shouldn't examine the magic too closely.
