heartfelt laughter

*sigh* I can't figure out how to embed the video. *rolls eyes*

Since 99.99% of you are on faster Internet connection than me downloading shouldn't be a problem. ;-)

I hope you find this as adorable as I did. Thank you Richard for a thoroughly delightful laugh, warmed my heart.

I remember when my kids were at that age. I know they would find absolutely the most astonishingly simple things amusing and would giggle themselves silly over it.

Oh- watch out for the comments underneath. A couple of the people are abominably cruel for no apparent reason other than to throw mud at the innocent. What is wrong with people like that? Anyone here have any insight at all as to why people behave that way? It is completely uncalled for.

The video is absolutely adorable.

And as for why people are like that, all I can say is some people hate anything good just for the very fact of it being good. They are haters.

Some people have the emotional range of indifference to hatred. It is impossible to be indifferent to the kids incredible joy and happiness. So these people can only resort to hatred. And try to tear down the good it does for other people. Plus if they can control how others feel through their destructive nature they can feel in power over them.

It is twisted and morally reprehensible.

All that said, thank you for sharing the joy! It made my night!

That is so stinking funny, I love it. I also like the comment "That kid is going to grow up to be just like his father --- STUPID, EASILY ENTERTAINED & A COMPLETE RETARD! Stay in school kid - it's your only hope!!!" He is no doubt a product of our government education system.

Its such a beautiful moment when babies discover their own laughter, you can almost see those endorphins working haha....thanks for that for the dumb shits in the comments who couldnt appreciate it for what it is....fuck em they're idiots!


Fiery said...

CMBob- I am thrilled you enjoyed it so immensely. Especially like how you put the bolded "absolutely" adorable part. :-)

TTEyes- I was struck by the sheer innocence of the child's obvious delight and it is such a marvelous feeling watching the little tyke become overcome with laughter and melt over onto the floor helpless with it. It is something most adults have forgotten how to do. Givethemselves over to the laughter.

Yucky commenters are indeed idiots. They make their little waves and get a few reactions by coming along and crapping in the pool. A truly reprehensible characteristic. Contemptible little maggots.

Thump Thump Eyes said...

Yes I wish more adults could somehow keep that ability to give themselves over to laughter, I know some people who never ever seem to find anything to laugh about!

Although I have heard of laughter clubs springing up around the place where people gather just to laugh....purely for the endorphin rush, good medicine I would imagine hahahoho:-)

Oohhh it's cute.
Laughter... I remember that.

I swear being a baby must be like being on drugs ALL THE TIME. I wish I could find something so simple so funny. How cute!

Richard said...

I quite agree with C-man Bob... hatred of the good for being good. I find the same kind of thing can be found among teachers and professors, especially in the arts. They get a sense of superiority from being able to refute anything through the skeptics' arts.

I liken them to vandals. They can't build a car for the life of them, and so cannot get the legitimate self-esteem such achievements earn. But taking a bat or hammer to a shiny new car is a thrill for them... "I can't do it, but I sure can destroy it. See!" And they rationalize why the car wasn't really much anyway, and the owner can afford another, after all he has insurance.... etc.

Nothin' like a baby's laughter to warm the heart. I am the biggest softie when it comes to kids I often get on with them much better than adults.
As for the off comments I agree with TT eyes Fuck 'em they don't even deserve wasting your thoughts on them!!

johnny said: "they don't even deserve wasting your thoughts on them"

I respectfully disagree. It is important to know why things happen in the world. Ignorance and evasion is what is allowing the evil in the world to flourish.

So while "they" may not deserve your thoughts, you should nevertheless think about them.

Johnny said...

"ignorance and evasion" "evil in the world" Are we talking about throw away comments to a utube video or the gulags of North Korea?

Crazyman Bob said...


We are talking about comments on a U-Tube video. But lets recap:

Fiery said “A couple of the people are abominably cruel for no apparent reason other than to throw mud at the innocent. What is wrong with people like that? Anyone here have any insight at all as to why people behave that way?”

Johnny, you replied, “Fuck 'em they don't even deserve wasting your thoughts on them!!”

Not, I’m guessing, the insight that she was looking for. Certainly not helpful advice.

It is not wrong for Fiery or anyone else to want to know why people act the way they do. In fact it is responsible of her. What would be morally wrong would be for her to notice people acting in a wrong way and NOT to wonder why. To just evade the question.

Evasion is the act of blanking out, the willful suspension of one's consciousness, the refusal to think—not blindness, but the refusal to see; not ignorance, but the refusal to know. It is the act of unfocusing your mind and inducing an inner fog to escape the responsibility of judgment—on the unstated premise that a thing will not exist if only you refuse to identify it. (This is almost word for word from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. I am not going to attempt to rephrase it when it is already stated so well.)

Ignorance, on the other hand, is all the stuff you don’t know. If you don’t know the facts relating to your decisions, your decisions will necessarily be faulty. Ignorance is not a moral crime, but it does negatively affect your life.

Ignorance and evasion work hand in hand in a vicious circle.

Now if the bulk of the populace in a country is in this vicious circle, does it make it easier or harder for people in power to abuse that power and get away with it?

And it is the result of millions of people’s ignorance and evasion that governments like North Korea are sanctioned and left in power.

Johnny said...

Fair enough Ayn oops I mean bob, lucky they don't get utube in north korea

Johnny said...

That was puerile and uncalled for,and no better than the commenents we are talking about. You are right and I apologise. I don't want this to seem manipulative. The previous comment was made in haste and the wrong frame of mind.
