Strange happenings

Have you heard of the Tanzania laughter epidemic?

During 1962 a laughter epidemic started in a school and spread to nearby villages. Several people had laughter attacks which incapacitated them. Schools were closed down because the children were laughing uncontrollably. It died down after about six months.

How strange it must have been, when it lasted?

how strange!!
should i think about people who complain their life is filled with grief, imagine if they were to see this, will they think they are better off grieving?
feel sorry for the tanzanians who are now laughing their way to grief??
