You really could spend your life arguing / interacting with people about rubbish. You really could. Your whole life. Some people really have nothing better to do / can't envisage a better way for them to spend their time.

I keep coming back to Frank... How is it that co-operation is possible, at all?

That's the thing... How could co-operation have evolved? How is it that it managed to evolve at all given the problem of social free-riders (who will take whatever they can get and shirk their responsibilities)?

There was this... Attitude of just how lucky we were. To have a great group of people... So smart... So hardworking... To live in this wonderfully quiet environment where we could get on with work. To have wonderfully efficient support staff that did their jobs (and went above and beyond) so things went smoothly and we were able to really make good inroads on the work. What a wonderful environment it was to work in and to be part of that.

And it was.

So why the hell did I leave it?

Because I wanted more?

Not more... Because I wanted different. Because I didn't feel that I was making a meaningful contribution. I saw that they were. I didn't see that I was.

I don't understand why people are so determined to revel in their sh*t, here.
