    When I find myself in situations I never

    thought to be in, I have this urge to burst into laughter. So to be polite in respect to those who seem so intensely involved, I would suppress with difficulty the laughter that threatened to come out.

    I can never do yoga. Why?

    I tend to burst out laughing in calm, quiet settings. Especially when people relax a little too much and let a little fart go. Sometimes going to church is also a problem...yikes

    There was a girl who everyone I knew disliked A

    LOT, and she was in a car going 100 mph down a highway with a drunk driver and they spun out of control and crashed. When I heard the news, I laughed really hard and said that's what she gets. I'm a terrible person.

    I was on a film set and we were at the final

    scene, which was when the boyfriend was finally with his girlfriend, and when they embraced each other on set, I suddenly bursted out laughing out loud, and all my crew were really annoyed with me.

    It just happens. Usually it's something

    that sparks a memory or inside joke and I can't control it. Most of the time it happens when laughing is definitely not appropriate. This happened during a fight with my mom, at my aunts funeral, and while my friend was trying to tell me why she was so down. I'm not laughing at...

    I Must laugh if someone trips.

    It's just a really bad habit. It's much worse if the person who trips is walking towards me because then I begin to laugh or start smirking in front of them...I can't help it.

    In one of my classes,

    I can't begin to tell one the amount of times I

    have either been the only one laughing, excused myself out of the room due to laughing, or been spoken to about my laughing. Good times.

    ... So there I was at the bar.

    Watching the news on the tele... Remember when they showed the lions noshing down on the giraffes? While the other bar patrons were quiet, seemingly horrified at the images ... I uncontrollably laughed my *** off ... And I've got a big voice! :-)=)

    Well, I guess you could say that.

    I have a really loud laugh and whenever someone falls, I always laugh until I realize that they get hurt. And then I feel really bad because I laughed automatically. I mean, you have to admit it, watching someone fall is funny

    When They Fall

    I am horrible at laughing at people when they fall. I find it hilarious, and I cannot help it. Of course, I'm not mean about it and will help them up, but I can't help but laugh. I'm sorry in advance if you ever fall in front of me :)

    I snickered; then the classmate next to me just shook his head "no".

    I tend to laugh when I am nervous.

    ..so i don't do so hot in certain work situations...a handful of times a boss has yelled at me at work and if I can not manage to hold back the laugh the situation tends to escalate unnecessarily...I guess "can't help it" is not a valid excuse even when it's the truth

    My imagination makes movies.

    Or cartoons. Always has. But after heart attacks it got funny. Had trouble being focused. So the cartooms translated chats. To make me laugh. And help me focus on chatters. But some laughs wreck bonding. Few understand. Nor care to hear me laugh.
