Text transcription for those who do not wish to partake in joyful enlightening ecstasy that the video will provide.

The human brain is a natural pattern finding machine.. It is said that when the brain recognizes an unexpected pattern, it is found to be funny.

I don't there is an evolutionary purpose to this(as there really isn't an evolutionary purpose to anything), but it is certainly a by product of human intelligence.

Why do some people find one thing funny, while others find that same thing to be unfunny? People might not recognize the same patterns.. Most of it I think has to do with a closed mind.. The mind is like a parachute, it doesn't work unless it is open.

For example, I find the album "Trout Mask Replica" by Captain Beefheart to be pants shittingly hilarious, while someone else might listen to it, and dismiss it as a bunch of noise and crap. If that same person opened their mind, and listened to it as if it wasn't a bunch of wanking dissonance, they might see the humor in it.

If you have a truly open mind, and see everything as art, you tend to have a good sense of humor. You really start to see your place in the grand scheme of things. You are more aware of what is going on around you, and as a result perceive more patterns... Especially unexpected ones. Thus, you tend to laugh more, and you have a better sense of humor. You see how absurd the world is. It becomes hard to take anything that seriously.

That variable unaccounted for ends up being your best friend, a way of life even. A great source of amusement... A teacher even. Some people think it is random chaos.. Some people think it is god.. Really, it is just the limits of our own perception smacking us in the face. There is something intrinsically funny about it.

Without humor, life would not be worth living.

You pretty much need to lie to yourself in order to give your life meaning.

Life without humor is so bleak.

I live down south, you won't even get within 5 feet of my state for we have the redneck border guard and a hero known only as Super Koopin, and here's his theme song.
