Posted: So I was trawling the highly emotive "Hotties on HoP" thread yesterday at work when I came across a post (can't remember who it was by now) that said people smile when they're happy, but it works in reverse as well.

Well, I thought I'd try it as I was feeling a bit crappy about myself, so I forced my face in to a manic grin and held it for about 15 seconds. After about 8 seconds, I actually started laughing for real. It really cheered me up, so I thought I'd share it with you lot!

So. I want everyone reading this to put a big manic grin on your face and hold it for 20 seconds. Show some teeth! If you start laughing for real, post it up here and share the giggles! If I make a few people laugh for no reason whatsoever, my work here is done... ubblol

Smiling is fun, everyone should do it more biggrin hug

Posted:I've been walking round with an insane grin laughing to myself since yesterday lunchtime. I've had some odd looks at work.... biggrin

If your real grin looks anything like the one in your avatar, I'm not surprised people are telling you it's creepy wink

Posted:One time a couple of years ago something amusing crossed my mind and I laughed.

But, as I was responding to that thought with a vocal giggle, I caught myself by surprise in the self-awareness.

I realised that I was really enjoying laughing out loud. So much so that I startled myself by laughing because I was enjoying it so much. And then I laughed even harder because that last laugh was so much fun, and so on.

Suddenly one trivial little thought exploded into a shower of laughter and I was having real trouble not finding the whole universe gigglingly hilarious. Kept me amused for most of the afternoon.

Good times man, Good Times.

Posted:Hehe! This thread made me remember this one time:

I was at a friends place, nothing major, just chilling and chatting, when all of a sudden I thought of something really funny. I started giggling at first, but it got worse, and after a while I was rolling on the floor, crying and laughing so hard! My friends thought I was a total nutcase!

But thats the joy of me, hehe!

Posted:i have one particular memory which happened almost 13 years ago but STILL i can't help but smile and laugh out loud at the thought of it!

i find when i am feeling a bit crap smiling at service people in shops really helps. most of the time they are pleasently surprised and genuinely smile back, then i realise that something as simple as smile can make someone else feel good, and i should do it more often.

Posted:now some may consider this mean but...
my dog, gus, likes to sleep at my feet for the first part of the night...i turn off the lights, climb under the covers and then he jumps up
for some reason the other night, he missed. and i felt him hit the bed and then i heard a thump thump. i was laughing so hard i had tears. my dad comes in the room cause it was so loud he thought i had fallen and was crying. gus is sulking across the room as i try to tell my father what happened
the next day i was telling my ex the story and started laughing really hard again and gus got up walked away across the room and gave me a dirty look
