  1. I love how you are such a kindred spirit when it comes to concerning yourself with the happiness of others in the world. I am forever doing random things to bring smiles to people I don’t know, and it is merely to bring a bit of joy into their day, and by that, it adds some to mine. I studied altruism extensively in Psychology… the popular belief is that there is no such thing as pure, unadulterated altruism. I beg to differ. I think that you sir, just in this blog that you write, that seemingly brings you no personal benefit is a prime example of true altruism. I salute you.

      1. I had a troll reblog one of my posts and told me to eff off about 10 times. I laughed and remembered your comment about being called a “fat basher!” Lol. I guess posting in an open forum allows for a few bad apples.
