In fiction creative writing courses they say that comedy is the hardest genere to do well, and that it's better if you try to tell a serious story laced with funny moments, which I'd have to agree. I frequently find tragi-comedies funnier than your typical hollywood comedies.

And I think you're onto something with laughter-breathing-meditation.
Thanks. I'd say this is why the people who talk about serious topics (such as global conspiracies!) are often most successful in conveying it to a large group if they have humour. There's a place for it.

I'd say laughter is like any conditioned, learned behaviour. And that conditioning is often what we learn from the value system underpinning a society, so we shouldn't always be hard on ourselves for laughing at inappropriate things. Plus, laughter is the body's way of dealing with stress or what we feel uncomfortable about. Someone who loves eating sweets and hates anything healthy can learn how to enjoy healthy food; in the same way, you learn when it's right NOT to laugh (at least in public ).

The most popular British humour is often about 'losers' who become embittered, I don't know if it's the same in other cultures.

Idk if you're talking about TV and films but When I think British humour I think Mr. Beans and Red Dwarf, and maybe Wallace and Gromit, oh and most definitely Monty Python and subtlety is somethng Brits do well. Hollywood humour on the other hand tries too hard to spell it all out for you. It's like they don't expect us to get it.

Laughter is seperate from humour as we've laid out. I'd bet anything you find the limbic system involved in laughing brains but humour is more refined and cerebral.

And the truth is we listen to somebody who makes us feel good rightly or wrongly. Mr Icke, Mr Brand, Mr John Oliver etc etc all like to laugh at official reality and that makes ppl feel more in control of their world. You don't go to shows or talks to hear statistics or brainstorm solutions on the spot. You go to "raise your vibrations," which definitely has its place.

Downloading the Big Lebowski. Fingers crossed. Recommend a good comedy that doesnt require too much thinking.

(see...it's hard right?)

Laughter IS meditation.
Because when your laughing you are not thinking
And when your not thinking The real you comes forward.

I know what you mean, talking to some people is just a waste of time.

Some people are just a waste of space. All you can do is laugh.

To think people are a waste of space just goes to show where you are as a human being swami.

That signature of yours really does not fit you at all

''Be in your heart''

It should be

''cannot escape my mind''

Default Moderation in everything

Being serious and focused, like laughter, is good for the brain as well.

Nigel Farage too? I've never seen a politician who seems to so thoroughly enjoy his job, except maybe that smarmy twat, Alex Salmond. Your theories seem to fully explain why those 2 are so popular at the moment.

Good british sitcoms are all about small men trying to grab that thing they want that's just out of reach.

Anthony hancock, harold steptoe, captain mainwaring, basil fawlty, ganville, blackadder, arnold rimmer, richard richards, david brent, andy millman.

They all apspire to something that's just out of there reach....

Weird how underdogs can be so funny in British culture. Someone should start a thread.

Love to comment but I'm out of my element here.

I'm glad Brits root for the losers. America loves the retard who has it all by sheer dumb luck eg. Forrest Gump, Homer Simpson, the list goes on.
