A Most Unselfish Act

I had a sudden moment of craziness today and decided to film myself doing a post instead of writing one, thinking it’d be quicker.  In fact, the logistics of doing it were, quite frankly, nightmareish and it took me a total of four and a half hours to get this video up, but now that I’ve worked out the procedure, I should be able to do it quicker next time. 

This video is a response to all those IDIOTS who say that there is no such thing as an ‘unselfish act.’  

IN YOUR METAPHORICAL FACES:





Am I better on film, or did I ruin the magic? Please be brutal.

    1. Though I think posh voice is always going to be a problem. I know you don't think you have a posh voice.

  2. What's particularly funny is that this is you trying *not* to have a posh voice. I do agree it's possible to be unselfish; what's difficult is trying not wanting to be thanked afterward (as you noted in the video.) And now, allow me to go play Sarcastaball with your hater. ;-)

    1. I didn't expect to be thanked; it was just that he immediately forgot what I'd done, and no one else had seen it happen so to everyone else it just looked like I'd been sick on myself and was trying to blame it on someone else! :)

  3. Funnily enough, your vid brought to mind one of my own unselfish experiences from many years ago, which coincidentally also involved copious vomit and subsequent loss of memory. Mine involved a wooden spoon though.

    1. I wish I can be normal! you don't know what its like! my parents are always yelling at me because I do something wrong! every few nights I cry myself to sleep thinking that I cant do anything right! you act like your perfect because you have your stupid "joke" and get angry at people who comment they hate your "joke" and you start getting angry! you probably think your perfect because ur a singer and actress. I'm not perfect. I'm a nobody. I even made a song and its called I'm All Alone.

    2. Well how about instead of wasting your time insulting strangers you fill your life with something positive? I'm not angry with you at all; you are completely within your rights to post anything on my blog but I am also within my rights to post replies. I'm not really sure what you want me to say to all of this- Im certainly not going to insult you because I don't know you. Why don't you start a blog about your songs? If you've got something to share then there will always be someone who wants to read it. :)

    3. And if you'd taken more than a second to read my other blog entries, you'd realise that I also suffer from aspergers and my life is far from perfect. If everyone was perfect, life would be very dull.

      And my stupid accent? I'm English. :)

    4. Thanks for your help, and you don't have a stupid accent, (I just said that because I was bored...and I'm sorry...) I wish I had an accent. I'm from New York, and I lost my accent because I moved to Chicago and the kids in my old school talked ghetto, and I started to talk like them. Now I don't have a accent but that's okay. Your lucky you have an accent because it tells people where your from and it kind a matches your personality, in my perspective.

  5. Although it is always good to see your face, I think the normal format for your blog is even more valuable in its utter originality.

    I gave a talk to 700 Swedish pensioners earlier this week, and the topic was "Does it pay to be selfish?" I had collected data from the same pensioners in a survey the week before. It turns out that it is widely agreed (and I have since confirmed this in surveys to Americans and Indians) that it pays in economic terms to be selfish, in the sense that selfish people are thought to be richer than unselfish people, but also that it pays in subjective terms to be unselfish, in the sense that unselfish people are thought to be more satisfied with their life than selfish people.

    My data also indicate that both of these widely shared beliefs are wrong: there are no differences between selfish and unselfish people in wealth or life satisfaction!
