It is a strange world, a sad world, a world full of miseries, and woes, and troubles. And yet when King Laugh come, he make them all dance to the tune he play.

To be concerned of the fate of the world is not bad, but bearing false witness is to not be

Laughter saves us from madness. For a little while we can forget the evil of the world.

I always wonder if the world's so bad and crazy what it is allowing it to be like this??
Isn't it just us being all hypocrites?

Bet that yawning more contagious than laughing.

A line about Laughter is not what you'd expect to find in Dracula, but that's where it came from.

As for yawning, according to a recent article in the Huffington Post, scientific studies do confirm common sense that it's contagious:

Yawning Really Is Contagious
It's true! One study found that when shown videos of yawning, around 50 percent of people also began yawning. It even happens among animals! A 2004 study observed the catching nature of yawns between chimpanzees and baboons and macaques. Perhaps most impressive, though, are dogs, who might start to yawn after just hearing their owners let one slip. Even merely thinking -- or reading! -- about yawning can trigger one (did we get you yet?).
