From a Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange answer (emphasis mine):
How did people calculate sine and cosine or logarithms or even multiply big numbers before there were calculators? They used books with tables inside, along with the training to use those tables properly. Or they used slide rules.
Life gets done. The tools change. But life still gets done.
What does "life gets done" mean? Is it a phrase? I know "to get something done" means to do something, but "life gets done" makes no sense for me, and googling it does not help.
