“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Physicist Discovers a Formula of Laughter


U.S. scientist Igor Krishtafovich discovered a formula of laughter. He came to Moscow to spread the formula among his former compatriots. As it turned out, humor is a weapon.

Igor Krishtafovich is confident that humor always implies aggression. "It is a bloodless verbal fight aiming to raise your status and strengthen your position. Even a friendly banter is a sort of intellectual clash, a kind of training before serious battles. In fact, we try to figure out who's the boss in the family when we poke fun at our loved ones," says Mr. Krishtafovich...

"Why the man who just cracked a nice joke is normally laughing louder than the others?"

"Well, he feels on top of the world, his moment of triumph has just arrived."

"If laughter is akin to aggression, why women have a liking for jesters?"

"A sense of humor is a strong male quality. It is a sign of good intellect. Evolution stakes precisely on the intellect since a smart fellow has more chances of survival. That is why a sense of humor can be a much bigger sign of masculinity than the pumped-up muscles. Needless to say, I'm talking about the subconscious level of perception."

Formula of laughter

According to Mr. Krishtafovich's theory, humor has always been around. Even in prehistoric times when man was just a few steps away from monkey. This is a prehistoric reaction on the level of reflex. Humankind has refined humor over thousands of years of history. Humor became more exquisite and complex. These days it is hard to make people laugh yet you can succeed if you follow the formula by Igor Krishtafovich. Using the formula, you can even find out whether your joke was good or not.

"The formula is primarily for comedians, writers who write satirical pieces, and politicians. A good joke can effectively entice the voters. Sure thing, you should bear in mind the mood of an audience and complexity of a joke," says Mr. Krishtafovish

The formula is as following:

HE = PI x C/T + BM

PI - personal involvement

C - complexity of a joke. The higher degree of complexity the better provided that your audience can solve the problem within 1 or 2 seconds.

T - time spent by a person solving a joke. The longer the time, the weaker the effect.

BM - background mood. A joker can have an advantage if an audience enjoys the show. However, a real good joke can "blow up" the most dismal audience.

HE - humor effectiveness.
