I continue to not understand how on earth I've accumulated a group of friends who really care about other people.

I mean, all my experience shows me that people who really care about others are rare. Really rare. As in, one-in-a-few-dozen-that-I'm-good-friends-with. And friends are (not as) rare, as in, one-in-a-dozen-or-so-that-I'm-acquainted-with. But my acquaintances are a miniscule slice of humanity.

And yet, in my friends, there are people in there - *multiple* people - who will actually go out of their way to help others, and will feel bad when they can't do anything . . .

It's kind of weird sometimes. Someone writes something depressed and asking for help, and I go to post a reply, and find . . .

that one of my friends already has.

Where on earth did I *find* these people?

On a completely different note, I've now made $225 through a programming competition. If I win top place in a week or so, I get something like $100k. Yeah right :) But it'd be nice.
