For most things we find funny, we have to think it’s both right and wrong at the same time. The Benign Violation Theory explores this idea.

“The philosophical study of humor has been focused on the development of a satisfactory definition of humor, which until recently has been treated as roughly co-extensive with laughter. The main task is to develop an adequate theory of just what humor is."
Benign Violation Theory:
“The Humor Research Lab uses the Benign Violation Theory as its theoretical foundation. In collaboration with Caleb Warren, McGraw has been developing and testing a general theory of humor called the benign violation theory."
Scientists Discovered What Makes Something Funny:
“It's really hard to be funny. It's even harder to be funny and get paid for it. But the cartoon editor of The New Yorker, Bob Mankoff, has made a living making people laugh for decades."

I still don't understand what makes swearing so funny. Like when telling a joke usually the swear word itself being the punchline makes it absolutely hilarious. Take the twitter account about flamingos and they're all charismatic about learning facts about flamingos, and them the only tweet is "flamingos are fucking stupid." It's priceless 😂 Another one I don't get is why dark humor is so funny
That heroin skit wasn't funny because it's boring.. It wasn't crazy enough and it's too obvious. Something like killing yourself would have been funnier but then again you don't have the background to be making those kind of jokes.
The heroine video was great satire that crossed the line. In order to mock Buzzfeed, they needed to cross the line because that was the next logical step over the edge that Buzzfeed has found itself at. The problem with the video isn't the subject matter. It's the flawless acting of the participants that is the problem. They come off as dead serious. There's no indication that they're faking it.
The difference between Dnews and Testtube plus is Trace takes too much time to explain something than DNews can explain in less than 4mins, but same thought. Try to show some photo clips, videos, or animation to have your viewers attention until video ends.
this is a pod cast style video as stated in the very beginning of almost every episode. And this is to inform you more on the subject since they break it down. I love how trace does real research and names his references
+Lenra Nirac I'd really like that too, but I think they don't add pictures because this channel is kind of targeted to people who are just listening rather than watching. Because they take so long to explain these topics, I just play this channel in the background while doing other things. It would be nice if they added pictures to capture the audience's attention.
This just occurred to me.
There are two guys sitting by a fire, roasting a rabbit over it. Suddenly, there's a rustle in the bushes around them.
"It's a lion!" says one.
"It's a tiger!" says the other.
And out of the bushes jumps a little bunny. The two guys start to laugh. Then one says, "Wait a minute! Is this story a comedy or a horror?"
"What's the difference?" says the other.
"Well if this is a comedy, there's a rustle in the bushes, we're scared, then a little rabbit jumps out and we laugh."
"And if it's horror?"
"Then as soon as we start laughing, a lion jumps out of the bushes on the other side and eats us both!"
"I still don't get the difference," says the second guy.
"Perspective!" the bunny yells. "You're roasting my daddy!"
When I first saw the "People Try Heroine" video, I was in both groups that Matt describes. I knew they were making fun of BuzzFeed's increasingly dumb videos, and I saw the humor in it, but I didn't think it was that funny. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I watched it, and it's better than 72.5% of BuzzFeed's videos (yes, I did the math). At the same time though, I thought the heroine video went overboard. I wasn't offended in the slightest, but I knew they were gonna get a lot of hate for it. I think that channel should have started with something different; not milder, just different, and later put up the heroine video.
I love that you guys are doing a week on humor/comedy. As an aspiring comic, I think these videos, and their sources could really help me out. I'm trying to go to as many open-mics as I can, and I also plan on creating a Kick Starter campaign for a new crowd sourcing website. It'll be called Start Kicker (I think it'll be really successful).
+Josh Horsman Yeah I was about to say this, the core of the joke was the context of tank.
In his defense though, his system 2 about the joke didn't kick in because he was busy talking.
His answer was my intuitive answer and then I jumped to the "tank" context part which he didn't have the luxury to do.

For millions of men across the world, regardless of culture, class, nationality, religion, or color, hair loss is an unavoidable aspect of growing older. Fortunate are those who do not face hair loss problems even in their old age. However, a majority of men face this issue in their 40s, 50s, or even earlier.
Causes of Baldness or Hair Loss in Men.
There are a number of causes of male hair loss, including:
Male pattern baldness Alopecia Fungal infections Psychological disorders Chemotherapy side effects Nutrient deficiencies Hormonal imbalances Lack of circulation on the scalp Stress.
It is important to note that hair loss occurs in women as well, for some similar reasons, and some different ones. We will cover hair loss in women in a separate article. Men predominantly suffer from this health condition, particularly male pattern baldness and early onset hair loss from age 20-40.
However, there are ways to slow down the rate of male hair loss or baldness, and even stimulating the hair follicles to reproduce hair. A few home remedies for hair loss and baldness issue are discussed below.
