A ha: remember how shite kids are at being "altruistic"? I'll remind you:
they're shite. I kind of think altruism varies according to your
relationship to the person who might benefit from your niceness. And that

Mind you, maybe you've just got hairpin-trigger genes for "stop being nice
if you get taken for a ride"...
