A Philosophical Question with engineering consequences

If you could, at no cost to yourself, help somebody else, would you do so?

This question sounds hopelessly theoretical. In fact, I wager that most folks, sensing a trap, will inevitably try to qualify this and explain that such circumstances don't really exist or that it shouldn't be mandated into law or whatever.

Cool. All your qualifications are accepted. Whatever it takes to get a straight yes or no to the question "If you could, at no cost (and I mean absolutely no cost however you wish to define the term cost), help somebody else, would you do so?"

It turns out the answer to this question may have implications for certain kinds of wireless routing.

I intend to laugh at anyone in the comments who attempts to qualify this or explain why it is impossible. Hah hah hah!
