That's a low prob risk, IMHO, MM--the egocentric ones have a genetic flaw that frays the edges of their flight quills unevenly over time, and they tend to veer to the left. Just a little at first, but it gets worth with age, and by the time they reach mating age they are flying in tighter and tighter circles until they disappear up their own butts. Altruism seems to biochemically counteract this effect--something to do with teleome renewal, I think...
