    Why a lack of a sense of humour is fatal

    Has anyone ever noticed how Islamic jihadists, Christian fundamentalists, political tossers etc. never have a good belly laugh. The ability to laugh at oneself is one of the traits of a well-adjusted personality and prevents anyone taking themselves too seriously. It also shows that you're mature enough to understand the basic absurdity of the world.
    Has there ever been an extremist with a GSOH? I doubt it.
    Hard Brexit now!

      The Roman dictator Sulla ( http://www.nndb.com/people/285/000097991/ )
      had a sense of humour, albeit on the grim side.

        Yes but that is because they were scared of him. I didn't say that extremists didn't try and make jokes.
        Question is did he crack up at anyone else's jokes?

          I believe Churchill & Eisenhower made him laugh, once!
