Quote of the day:

Humor is the antidote to overthinking. It’s a way of saying that life is paradoxical. Humor contains contradictions; it does not resolve them but revels in them. It says that the right way to exist among the contradictions, paradoxes, and absurdities of life is to cope with them through laughter.”

— Bob Mankoff, How About Never: Is Never Good For You?


Although humans have been described as the only animal that laughs, there have been studies showing that animals, well some of them at least, seem to have a sense of humor too.  As we live through the upheavals brought on by our changing economies and social structures, keeping a healthy perspective on the quintessential absurdity of life is all that stands between sanity and taking ourselves way too seriously.



If you cannot look in the mirror at times, see what a funny concoction you are, then laugh?  Then I truly pity you.
