Thanks for the video. Sometimes it seems like the bad guys win. So it's nice to know that there's at least some evidence to the contrary. I think bad guys do win in the short term, and they sure wreck havock with the rest of us. It's important for society to see that it's not the norm.

How do you spell "havock"?

A good summary for me has been "Nice guys finish last ... or first."

I've never been able to explain why that phrase motivates me to get off the couch, but it does.

I think it is interesting that the key was communication. Two people working together can generally accomplish more than one.

People unable to communicate tended to act selfishly, but those who communicated tended to either cooperate or exclude those who were selfish (which negated any "advantage" to being selfish).

Hi, Knight,
Also, real life is way more complicated than games. I've had kind things I've done come back years later. Unfortunately, so have some of the no-so-good things.
