It’s pretty amazing. A small kindness that’s no big deal when you do it for someone you know is an incredibly powerful act when done for a stranger. It’s also likely to have cascading societal returns. Research by psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky found that recipients of kind acts were almost three times more likely to do kind acts for others. So simply by regularly reaching out to our co-humans, we can transform our society, little by little, from a vast strangeropolis to a really, really big neighborhood. The way I see it, a minimum of one kind act a day should be our self-imposed cover charge for living in this world. We get the society we create — or the society we let happen to us.
Lamented another 8chan user, with no apparent irony: “Unfortunately even misinformed people can put out their opinion on whatever they want, and they’ve got a large platform to do it with via the internet.”
So this is pretty cool, I was interviewed by Rolling Stone today. No biggie.
you know what upsets me
bunnies have tons of sex
like supposedly always humping right
but does that affect how we look at bunnies?
do we still think bunnies are cute af?
do we want bunnies any less because of their sex habits?no
treat people like bunnies ok
this has been a psa
I like the central message behind this but if I were to treat people like I treat bunnies then I’d ignore them because they’re dull as hell and I’d be happy to eat them in stews and pies.
Admittedly there are plenty of people who already fall in to the first part of that but I think that I’ll avoid going all “Hannibal” on humans for the moment.
