Laughing Out Loud Online - The Key To Finding Hilarity In A Boring World

Apr 28, 2008
Let's face it. We all love the Internet and its wealth of quick knowledge and information but it has also caused us all our fair share of misery.

Viruses have destroyed our hard drives, financial and sexual predators lay lurking in the shadows and everything else that could possibly be unpleasant is never more than a click of the mouse away.

So in order to not let the world of fast information get you down, it is important to stay in touch with your sense of humor, especially when you are stuck behind a computer all day. The daily frustrations of dealing with the Internet and computers can leave even the most pleasant of people in a fowl mood, so it's important for all of us to keep ourselves laughing out loud online.

One of the biggest reasons that more people are smiling behind their computer screens is the sudden mass influx of funny video file sharing sites. These sites allow any user from anywhere in the world log on and view real-time videos from all over the world.

They are usually organized in a manner that anyone can easily search for and find something of interest. For example, if you are a cat lover you would not have any difficulties busting a gut over some hilarious kitty videos. There is an abundance of websites and video sharing sites that specialize in home videos of cats doing what they do best; being hilarious.

The most common way for people to stumble upon these sites is through a recommendation from a friend. In the digital world, this can come from a variety of sources but is usually contained as a forward in an email, a reminder on a social networking site or even spoken in person.

The sheer wealth of funny information, especially pictures and videos is overwhelming. And it is definitely a buyers market because most of the funny information you find online comes at absolutely no cost.

The popularity of social networking sites has made finding solid humor much easier for many people. These sites allow users to post website addresses for funny pictures or videos that their friends can see. So if a few of your friends share the same sense of humor, then you can be in constant exchange of links to funny videos or other online content.

Although it is probably not the best idea to send funny forwards to your friends while on the job, many people are guilty of it. Nevertheless, receiving a funny email right in the middle of a stressful day can give you the boost you need to get through until five o'clock.

More and more these days we are holed up in front of our computers for longer and longer periods of time. We are interacting with each other less and most of us are certainly laughing a lot less.

As the old adage goes, laughter is the best medicine, and that still applies in a modern and ever-changing world.

So even though the Internet can be a frustrating world at some times, it offers the perfect market for soothing the nerves through humor. No matter what comedic styles you prefer, there is a guaranteed over-abundance just waiting to be found online.

So click your way to laughter today. Your mood and stress level will thank you for it.
