OK, so now I’ve moved back towards the other way. Only I know why.
For this brief bit while I’m on this side of the pendulum’s swing, the question which came to mind was about laughing.
Do we know why we laugh? I mean, people laugh when they are nervous, when they are happy, when something funny happens…I’ve even seen people laugh when they cry.
I’ve personally seen monkeys and other species laugh. Dolphins seem to laugh, although I don’t know if this is a trained behaviour or a natural one.
I’ve heard reports of elephants mourning their dead. Do they laugh, too?
