    Very true - perspective is often the key factor in how we feel about things.

    Sounds good to me! i don't think we should use laughter to completely replace modern medicine... although you never know, i've seen some pretty miraculous things.

    I read something funny today that I thought I would share " laughter is the best medicine unless you are laughing for no reason, then you DO need medicine! " that made me laugh! :)

    Never thought of it as a medicine for financial issues, but that does make sense too!

    Good point on using less muscles. More muscles to frown than smile, and more to cry than laugh. I like it.

    Very true. Be careful not to let laughing cause a complete coughing fit! You might end up needing a whole new kind of medicine.

    Sounds like you've got two good solutions there - laughter and time w/ loved ones.

    I don't smoke, but I can see where both things would be helpful.

    It's a good thing I don't have broken ribs, I just laughed out loud at this one.

    Very true - sometimes we use laughter just to mask the pain, but in the end it does much more than that and we feel much better afterward.
