I enjoy reading the Order of the Stick webcomic and it doesn't bother me if there's new comics once a day, once a month or whenever. But reading today's front page commentary by Rich:

Quote
In other news, I slipped on a patch of too-early-in-the-season-for-me-to-have-expected-it ice two days ago and whacked the everloving crap out of my right elbow; it's a lovely shade of purple. I'll be fine, but I probably won't try to draw a comic for a day or two more.

I suddenly realized that the guy is a walking ailment magnet. I have never seen someone so shit-all predisposed to every kind of accident/illness/malaise than him. I fully expect to read one day about how he was out driving his car when suddenly a rabid mongoose flew in through his driver's window and bit off one of his testicles, then escaped with his nutty trophy out the passenger window.

It's surprising how many webcomic creators have health issues.  Maybe the cliche about artistic geeks being sickly is true.  icon_lol

Rich has some sort of chronic ailment that severely weakens his immune system.  I've seen forum posts about it, but he won't go into what it is.  Needless to say, frustration mounts when something happens, and yes, slipping on ice and hurting yourself isn't necessarily indicative of a chronic illness, but who knows?  Maybe he was dizzy because he realized how fast the world is spinning.

Well, any job which requires you to sit down while working, and can be done from home, is very likely to attract people who may have less than optimal health.
