i was just wondering, what is it that makes us laugh? what is so appealing about the joke that makes us laugh? kind of confusing....

how many times do you actually laugh out loud and how does that work into comedy laugh tracks?

An evolutionary device that strengthens bonds between social groups by causing you to form a more vulnerable face shape(smile) and laugh, both of which release chemicals that make you happy. At least that is the most likely reason.

I think what makes things funny is that they are unexpected. If every joke was predictable, nothing would be funny.

I didn't use Wikipedia, I just really like learning about humans and how they evolved in an objective context.

If I explained, it wouldn't be funny. You would never laugh again, and then you'd go out and kill yourself. I can't live with that kind of responsibility.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

obscurity?
humiliation of others?
the situation?
it all depends on your sense of humour and what the joke is.
imo..

It's even stranger when you find out monkeys only laugh when they're really angry.

Also laughing is an evolved response used to indicate to others that no danger is present.

I wouldnt laugh at a lion if it rushed me, but I would laugh at a lion takin a shit.
