That was 20 pages of fail.

 

What you goobers failed to realize is that altruism has nothing to do with receiving reward or benefit - it's all about expecting to receive reward or benefit.

 

It's the motivation for the deed, kids.

 

If Ooters lady gave him a million bucks or a bloagie it wouldn't matter, it's still altruistic because he did it expecting nothing.

 

So, I cleared that up for ya's.

You guys should just ask me when you get all tangled up like that.wink.gif

That would be my definition as well. Imo, according to the Sparky/mag definition, it would be impossible to do anything altruistic....you are going to feel a little good about yourself, dare I say prideful, for any good deed.

Well then I guess the argument is what is the definition of altruism.

 

The one I like is Billybobs take on the matter.
