Well I don't know what any of those three mean, but as long as you laugh, that's good. Not much makes me laugh my head off. I usually have a chuckle here and there.

The delightful Bush, e.g.

Also to go along with that---People who say something with high convictions as the 'truth' and mean it---(when its all their own BS either because they really think so, or trying to sell you something/convince you of something)

Thank you. But I am very touchable. Some have even argued that I'm a little "touched".

I predict that the movie Tropic Thunder is going to make me laugh so hard that everyone in the movie theater will hear me.

That happened when I watched Jacka Number 2. Probably one of the funniest movies I have ever seen in theaters.

Ahhh...to be a college student! :)

Oh no. Just some sweet talk will do. :)

And I'll try to not be irrational.
did I mention that I was a free radical? That may have some vector to the conservation.

Oh dear god, its the angle jokes again. I wonder who will be the first one to use the acute joke.

Only if those complements worked in real life...

My girlfriend was telling me how mad she was, "she was absolutely vivid."

Bertrand Russel said:
Mathematics is the subject in which we do not know what we are talking about or whether what we say is true.
I laugh at life, my wife's jokes, nonsense, people who disagree with me about anything at all, parody, bad puns, people who trip and fall, Einstein's theory of relativity, my own evil plans to take over the world, and good puns, in that order.
