You know you've laughed at someone else's expense (I live off it). But I'm just wondering what makes it so damn funny.

we can relate to pain

it's just like a comedian saying "dont you hate it when you go to the bathroom and theres no toilet paper?"

we relate and think its funny, i have no idea why though

Good question. And if we find people getting hurt funny.. Why don't we consider wars a laugh riot?
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

With schaudenfreude you don't have to see pain as funny... whenever you think "oh, at least I'm better off here" you're still taking pleasure out of someone's misfortune at some level.

Nothing cheers me up like seeing a man getting hit in the groin by a blunt object traveling with a significant amount of velocity behind it.

Good question. And yeah, I think it might have something to do with how we can relate.

We laugh because we are thinking "Ha, at least that isn't me." and until it is you, you will continue to laugh (and most likely after words) because you: one, find other people's misery hilarious (sadistic douchebags) and two, you can relate to their pain and enjoy seeing it being inflicted on someone other than yourself (sadistic douchebags). At any rate, it doesn't matter because as long as there is a guy teaching his son how to play baseball there is a father getting hit in the jewels by a softball.
If all misfortunes were laid in one common heap whence everyone must take an equal portion, most people would be contented to take their own and depart.

My teacher once said the definition of comedy is the exaggeration of everyday situations and accidents or something like that.

I don't know, I wasn't paying attention in drama class that day.
