Hertz is absolutely correct! @WeirdHarold you are a Good Hearted person.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far away... Just kidding.
Back in July of 2009 a person asked, "Why fold?" "For what purpose?" You have given the best response.
If you know someone, or want to help science and research, folding is one of many good ways to do this. You have that in spades.
For those who do not have a personal reason, I offered this back in 2009:
The point of folding?? Hmmm I'll ask another question...
What's the point of playing video games? or playing a round of golf and hitting a tiny little white ball and then chasing it?? or Reading novels?? or Playing baseball?? or Football?? or any sport for that matter... or how about running for a political office??
As human beings we always try and find ways to attain enjoyment in our lives. It makes it worth while.
And also as humans, for what ever reason, a little competition in the mix makes it more interesting... Finally, and generally speaking most humans do what is right and try to help others in the process...
The point, I guess, is that at some level it's enjoyable... Whether it's helping research to improve our human condition, or gaining points in a friendly competition, or overclocking your rig to get the most out of it and measuring that success by how many work units you complete in a day, or month or year... or measuring your success by how many points you attain... or continuing to do something because others do or expect you too...
For me, it started out as helping research. It has ended up staying in contact with my folding buddies here at OCN... That's all there really is to it. I enjoy the teamwork here at OCN (with regards to folding) ~ and winning the Jaded Monkey contest in May of 2009 proved that in spades!!! If I don't fold or give a 99% effort, I feel like I'm letting the folks here at OCN down... That's all there is to it...
And BTW - I will not fold for any other team at this point in time... Never have, and never will.
I hope this helped, :-)Edited by 455buick - 10/25/15 at 2:08pm
