Some people find some things funny, others don't. We laugh when a similar situation recurs? We laugh when people fall over and hurt themselves? We smile on the point of laughter when Langbein posts a new thread? We laugh when people are frank? We laugh when someone intentionally misinterprets our words... I find some of this funny, sometimes I think twice and stop laughing, but: Why are things funny? Why do we feel bad when people laugh at us?
