This very short article is about how to achieve short-term excitement with humor.

Humour is necessary and important. It is a gift from God that should be utilized by humans. To my knowledge, the animals do not have a sense of humor. In this highly competitive world, humor can be a mechanism to relieve stress.

Tonight, I read and heard a lot of bad news; Low salaries of lecturers in Indonesia, floods in Jakarta and politics in Malaysia and Indonesia. It cannot be denied, news like this coloring our feelings. What emerges is empathy and anger. The mass media can indeed play the feelings and way of thinking. This is the power of the media.

With humor, we can laugh at ourselves. Laugh at our stupidity and mistake. With humor, we can reduce the psychology effect caused by the problems encountered in our daily life. I like to laugh. This is the best mechanism to achieve short-term excitement. In my opinion, from a broader perspective, humor is associated with wisdom, the quality of being wise.

“Always laugh when you can: it is a cheap medicine.” Lord Byron.
