Kevin Smith on the meaning of life

This talk has echoed with me more than once over the past two years and provided an unpleasant but maybe necessary perspective on life. 

The biggest switch I've had to accept is how we always think of a death in war or getting eaten by a bear as worse than dying in the modern world, but is that even true?  Confronting your idea of a good death seems almost invariably a side-channel question into a good life.
