Random Acts of Kindness
 
Has a stranger helped you out? Share your story.

Have you helped a stranger out? Share your story.

Do you believe that boasting about a random act of kindness towards a stranger negates the effect of having done something good? Don't share your story.

I couldn't finish my mixed grill at the pub last week. Wrapped it up and gave it to a hobo along with a smoke... half the reason was just that I couldn't be bothered to carry it anymore though. :p:

Edit: Oh don't share your story? Whoops.

A few years ago I took a class on recording studio techniques. Around this time as well my parents had made the decision that I had to use headphones with my amp. I mentioned to the instructor in between recording that I was gonna buy headphones this week down at my local music store. He pointed at the headphones I was wearing and said "Keep 'em. No charge."

That is all. Although one time I helped a little old lady with some landscaping while I was just walking up the road. I think I scared her deeply, though.

I gave a loaf of bread to a tramp because it was blue moldy. Also at a Manowar gig I held everyones beer while they helped a guy back into his wheelchair after the security guards had fallen on him trying to stop a fight

I generally like the idea of helping out the less fortunate, but don't do it as much as I should. Though I am making plans to donate $100 to some charity soon, so that counts for something.

Well, this one time when I was 8, I was playing junior league football and fell and had a hair line fracture on my knee cap. So then this one guy jumped the fence out of nowhere and helped me walk to the car to go to the doctor.

It was the most romantic thing I've ever seen.

No homo.

Can mould on bread be bad for you? I'm just wondering because sometimes I make my own bread and it gets mouldy pretty fast because there are no preservatives or anything in it, but I still want to eat it because it's food.

I'm pretty sure it'll mostly just make your stomach sick if anything.

Well I know that blue mould will make you violently sick. My dad once ate what he thought was a blueberry muffin and he was gushing out everywhere

Cut out the blue part and put the rest in the toaster. Or just bake smaller loaves so you can finish them before they get mouldy.

I hope it was originally a muffin and not a piece of bread. Cause that'd be pretty deformed...and seriously screwed up.

I quit being nice to strangers because they always act like I'm an ax murderer...my wife has since told me that in public I glare at everyone like I'm about to flip out, so that may be why...

You do have to take out a substantial part of the surrounding areas though, because you get rid of the roots of the mold.

I'm always cautious when eating old blueberry muffins, you can never tell.

Yep, I stopped doing it because they would always rudely ask if I had more. I feel bad cause I wanna help them out but I can only give so much money/sandwiches

So what I'm gathering here, is that I need to gobble up my bread faster. ty ug, you're much cheaper than professional nutritionists.
