    Effects of Laughing Too Hard?

    So, I was listening to a CDR my roommate made me of Patton Oswald and laughed possibly the hardest I've ever laughed in my life. I was actually crying and feeling like I may vomit because of the force of the laughter.

    So, this got me thinking, what if Mr. Oswald's comedy had been set to 11? Would I have suffered any real physical injuries?

    Not just peeing your pants here or blowing snot out your nose, but like gagging or having your liver explode or something.

    Is really ridiculously funny humor a threat to us all?

    Stand-up comedy: America's newest terror threat!

    *sigh* Somehow, it doesn't seem impossible.

    206 confirmed kills

    If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

    I doubt there can be any real physical harm done.
    I love how a good laugh will make you feel all light headed from lack of oxygen!
    but I hate how a good laugh will make your stomach cramp up from workin those muscles!
    I flow free and bright on the breath of circumstance

    FACT: The number one cause of spontaneous combustion is manic laughter.



    ...Holding in a sneeze is the second most cause.

    lol Good one, but on the topic..... I have read that laughing is actually good for your stomach muscles, along with some others, but I forget which ones. Laughing does hurt sometimes, but your liver will NOT explode..... Good topic though
