    In general in human communication I'd be more interested in who was laughing and what about. When I'm in a country in which I do not understand the language, laughter is just disturbing.

  2. Craig Loehle:

    Perhaps it was that "irrational exuberance" that some economist talked about during bubbles. Highly infectious I hear.
