The Kindness of Strangers


Occasionally someone does something that reminds you that there are thoughtful, kind people in the world. Those visitors to this blog who play boardgames are aware of the Freebies page where I share all the PDF rules summaries and reference sheets I have made for boardgames in my collection. Well, out of the blue, a member of BoardgameGeek decided that he wanted to show his appreciation for my work in a tangible way, and made a donation to me for the buying of new games. A completely unsolicited act of generosity.

There are some nice people out there.

    I think that there are actuallly lots of nice people out there. The problem is, it only takes a very few fucking idiots pissing in the pool to ruin things for everyone else.
    And those people are also the loudest and the most intrusive, so you notice them more.
