Laughter What a Wild Thing

EEL (@mindlessfreak30) 10 years, 8 months ago

I have a sober laugh…and then there is my non-sober laugh. I was just wondering if anybody has experienced anything similar to me. My friends always talk about my laugh as if it is something special, like they will literally tell others about my laugh like its some special experience or something like that. I’m sure we’ve all had those bouts of laughter where it is just none stop and becomes ridiculously contagious, well it is usually me who initiates the bouts of laughter and will cause the on slaughter of continuous laughter where it feels like your sides are about to explode.

I’m almost more known for my laugh then anything else. I’ve had people who have seen me at a party or something and recognize me and literally run away or start laughing even if I’m sober and haven’t done anything just because they remembered how it felt last time they laughed with me.

I usually feel like a strange connection with people who are involved in the laughter even if its like the first time I’ve met them or strangers. I will often look around and just feel like the surge of connection and "oneness" almost. If I lock eyes with someone the laughter and connection will intensify almost.

Its just odd to me how people talk about it as if its an experience…rather than just a normal laughing fit and many say they never laugh like that. It almost makes me feel like I have some weird power of laughter. Which is cool I guess, just wondering if anybody else has anything similar.

I have all kinds of different laughter. But the truth is I rarely laugh. I might smile or something, but there aren’t many people who can make me laugh from the heart. It’s mostly sarcastic “what the fuck is this” laughter.

So, I have to create it. Make it by myself and laugh like a complete lunatic. My rare laughter from the heart may sound like Daffy Duck’s, or The Joker’s from the cartoon. But anyway, I always laugh differently.

This is the closest I could find to mine.

Nice, there’s a lot more to laughing I guess the more we analyze or laughing histories? Like we can remember the last time we laughed uncontrollably.

Or sometimes people can get angry at you which is really funny. In moments where you have to do work, but the joke is still in your head and people know your still thinking of it. Then you look at each other without saying anything and you laugh uncontrollably.

Seems like you have the privilege of having a distinct laugh. Distinct laughs yes, they trigger automatic laughter from the sheer expectation that the laugh itself will create laughter:)

Even when I came here I was already laughing about something else today.

But it makes me think to not think and just laugh:) Thinking about talking about laughing is making me remember past laughters!

Like if you created a top 10 really funny times you laughed in your life. Where you couldn’t stop.

@mindlessfreak30, my friend Pete has a laugh like that. genuine, free, and uninhibited. and loud. He kind of sounds stupid when he laughs and it’s infectious.

I love the idea that laughter has health benefits. having two kids I have plenty of opportunities to laugh at them, and to act like an idiot and laugh at myself.

and of course every mushroom trip has at least one bout of breathless laughter . . .

last word: Osho.

I love Osho. I have a pic of his smiling bearded face on my wall. :)
