GeekSpeak – When did you last laugh? The 1970s? Let’s explore the realities of humour! Join the discussion Sept 11 @ 12pm SLT


Where does humour come from?  Why do we laugh and how do we sometimes avoid laughing at all costs?  Does humour depend on language, culture, history?  Are there jokes that are funny everywhere and at all times?

What would have been the most popular joke in 100,000 BC, or 1500 AD?  What will be the best joke in 2100 AD?  And what jokes will aliens find funny?  And why are the British so damn funny?  (But perhaps you don’t think they are?)

Come and discuss the mystery of humour.  Bring anyone, as long as they have a sense of humour.

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at 1pm SLT in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
