A male engineering student was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week." The engineering student took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it; and returned it to his pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I’ll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want." Again the boy took the frog out, smiled at it, and put it back into his pocket. 

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I’ve told you I’m a beautiful princess, that I’ll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won’t you kiss me?" The boy said, "Look I’m an engineer. I don’t have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."

BBC - What makes us laugh?
by Tom Stafford

A simple question with a surprisingly complex answer – understanding laughter means understanding fundamental issues about human nature.

What these observations show is that laughter is both fundamentally social, and rooted deep within our brains, part and parcel of ancient brain structures. We laugh because we feel like it, because our brains make us, and because we want to fit in socially. All these things are true. But biologists distinguish at least four fundamental types of answer you can give to explain behaviour: "why did it evolve?"; "how did it evolve?"; "How does it develop across the lifespan?" and  "how does it work?".

若有恒,何必三更眠五更起;最无益,莫过一日曝十日寒。

very useful tips
How negative posts make people dislike you.

The Atlantic published a piece on how people with low self esteem tend to publish negative posts on Facebook. Then those negative posts make people dislike that person, which harms their social life and leads to even lower self esteem.

I don't know about low self esteem, but I do believe people who constantly vent with negativity (about politics, or railing against one tech company or another) can alienate the people who follow them, either here, on Facebook or on Twitter -- without realizing it.

What do you think?
