7/29(Sat.)What's so funny (Host: Jeffery)

文章Jeffery Wang » 週二 7月 11, 2017 10:38 pm

Dear YOYOs,

Normally I won't consider myself as a man with deep-wisdom, but I know that everybody needs to laugh occasionally.
In order to keep yourselves on track, and maintain daily's good mood.

Do you feel more relaxed every time after having a good laugh?
I mean the laugh that makes you stomach hurt, the kind that makes you laugh until you cry.
How about try to analyse your laughter? Analyse the source of your happiness.
Perhaps you'll understand yourself more after doing so.

Please read this article before the meeting:
Can laughter cure illness?
http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/i ... llness.htm

Questions for Discussion
Session I
Q1. Do you agree that laughter can actually cures disease? Why or why not?

Q2. As a follow-up question to Q1, do you have a personal experience to support your opinion?
Do you think it is possible that you may eventually change your perspective? What will you do to make the change happen or not happen?

Q3. Do you think there are different sense of humor between different culture ?
If possible, please provide an personal experience.

Session II
Q4. Do you consider yourself as a person with sense of humor? Try to share a really funny story/joke with your group

Q5. As a follow-up to Q4, try to analyse the reason why this story/joke makes you feel so funny.
Perhaps your group members find it funny, or not, for different reason, and you may learn something new from each other.

Q6. As a follow-up question to Q5, what will you do to to make yourself funnier?
Or what will you recommend to help other people have better sense of humor?

You are posting the topic too early, bi-si-shui-ya (Mandarin)! :shock:

Obviously, it's a good topic, don't mind my bad joke. :D

good topic, if not great. unfortunately guess i can't make it..

yeah, right, laughter is really very important. i do believe it can somehow help our health. but then again, i don't believe in fake it until you make it. i don't think it's laughter itself alone can do it. instead, it's the things that make you laugh matter too. that is to say, happiness is the key. you got to be really happy about something, and then show your happiness with smiles and laughter. to have both would really make our life healthier i would say, though if it can cure disease still remains to be proved.

as to sense of humour, that's really subjective in my opinion. not only it varies from culture to culture, it varies within the same culture as well. let's say i view myself a person with good sense of humour. but the thing is, in reality, most people just don't think so. if so, am i still a funny person? of course not i would say. therefore, funny or not really depends on how the receiving ends would think of it. of course,it would be easier for people from same culture to share the same feelings with things from their culture. at the end of the day,

anyway, humour and laughter are inseparable, and essential in our life. if you indeed have sense of humour, you will make people laugh. people around you will be happy. guess that's why girls are always attracted to guys with great sense of humour, since those guys will make them not just happier, but also healthier ahhh~ maybe also the other way round lo~ in these situations you will definitely be happy too.

who would ever want to be with someone who always put smiles on their face?

unfortunately, i don't have the sense.. :ccry:
i might be a cynic and, a sceptic as well but, i'm definitely not a bad person!!
