Die laughing
Two items from the inbox: Mary points to the NYT story Suicide Found to Be Less Likely in Heavier People, which reports on a study that claims that the fatter you are, the less likely you are to off yourself.

Meanwhile, Mom read this nugget on Maeve Binchy's blog:

"…if you laugh for 20 seconds, it's better exercise than if you were to row for a whole three minutes."

Does that mean that if you laugh a lot you're more likely to end it all? Seems like a risk worth taking.

It might hasten yr suicide, but check out this headline on Slate.

Oh, indeed?

Nice! The subhead is also good. Sounds like "Human Nature" needs some kind of attention.
