*nodding* That's pretty much what I figured. I do realize, of course, the OP was meant to ask questions, engendering one's OWN response...I just wanted to know how you'd answer it yourself, Silly. Thanks.
How I'd answer for myself may be beyond the remit of the BIP project but, since I like talking about myself I don't mind answering.
I've prolly said this before - I'm in it for the lulz.
Since most of the world I'm presented with stikes me as hilariously funny it's only really difficult for me to see the funny side when I'm under what I consider to be extreme duress.
Because I find this form of laughing my head off the most fulfilling I tend to try and push myself into situations that put pressure on me, the payoff usually coming when I completely lose it and start either pulling my hair out or weeping like a little bitch.
Failing this avenue being immediately available to me I will endeavour to find situations where other people are under extreme duress and laugh at them.
The ones who seem to be dealing with the situation a lot less effectively than myself often prove to be the most hilarious.
Paris Hilton breaking a nail and sliding into a near fatal panic attack is worth about 50 instances of people screaming and panicking as a tidal wave or landslide hurtles towards them in terms of sheer, tear streaming glee.
Other things I like to laugh at include:
Belief systems and the people who adhere to them
People who seem to share the same sense of the ridiculous as myself
