Is there such a thing as selflessness?

Mark got me to thinking today about the possibility that there is no such thing as a selfless act. I had thought about this before and indeed, most acts that appear selfless to us, upon further inspection, will usually give the doer some sort of payback. I am going to hopefully finish reading The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins someday soon and can comment on this further.

Last but not least, I just saw The Fellowship of the Ring (yes, again) and the new trailer for the second movie, The Two Towers. The coolest thing about it was that they showed Treebeard (a talking, walking tree, or ent). I am pretty excited only 264 more days!
