In a dopamine-induced trawl of my Twitter feed I ran across someone posting a funny video and saying, essentially, “My humour has a high-bar, and I laughed at this, so it must be funny.” Eughh. What a way to live.
There’s more—though not much: the mild sense of aversion caused by coming across this tidbit of Twitter inspired a maxim: Laugh easy, think hard.
My aversion was, consequently, soothed and a quiet smile came across my features as I imagined a possible future in which I embody the sentiment of that maxim. Ahhhh. What a way to live.
