The newsletter of the Altshuller Institute of TRIZ Studies provides us with the list of deeply self-satisfactory activities of the Institute.

They stimulate themselves by putting together another fantastic TRIZ Conference.

They get wet and generate excitement by their own ongoing project.

They celebrate their own TRIZ Day, which is tied to the birth of a brilliant man who gave birth to a powerful methodology that will [? ? GF] give birth to incredible innovations that will [??? ? GF] change the world.

Chairman Victor Fey also has satisfied himself by submitting an outline for a TRIZ Certification Program. They are looking forward to group gratification by joining with the members of the Russian TRIZ Association, who satisfy themselves very much too.

These highly self-satisfactory activities are interrupted by only one non-masturbatory event. That is trying to do something real, to help others to solve a real problem, or at least to organize a solution effort. Here they are impotent.
