    Except not “random”: it was a very focused act of generosity. Random is justifiably an epithet, the adjective of increasing entropy. I never got the cuteness bug from “practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.” (Part of the “write random aphorisms” school?)

    I applaud the notion to be less stingy in one’s acts of generosity, without necessarily weighing them for a direct quid pro quo. (Otherwise it’s just a business deal, eh?) But better to act purposefully than randomly, IMHO.

    A wonderful article indeed. except that it says – it’s the olympic spirit. Its bigger than the olympics. Its really the true human spirit. Only if we had more people like Hakensmoen, we wouldnt be spending 100s of billions of dollars building hi tech weapons to wipe each other from the face of the earth
