    seems kind of contrary to 'connection' being the reason when you think about how so many will hide tears when watching something together. doesn't it?

    Absolutely! Yawning is a socially contagious activity. You can even use it to test who in a group of people feels safe with you/likes you.

    I think I tend to laugh less. I tend to be more likely than not to be around people who don't laugh much at stuff, so in that case laughing is more an embarrassment.

    Among the people I know, I seem to be one of the most likely to completely crack up and full on laugh at something I find funny. (Eyes closed, arched over, unable to stop, eyes watering, etc.)

    I don't know the "Why."

    All I know is that I recall noticing annoyed looks on faces of several other ad hoc audience members when I guffawed at The Simpsons. There was connection, but -- the sort you don't particularly want.

    i do that a lot.

    difference is, i like those connections just fine. it kind of turns into them laughing at you.

    it's been the other way around too. been in a room with someone else who is laughing way too hard and ended up cracking up at them. especially if they aren't even laughing anymore. just turning purple and crying.

    all in good fun!

    The difference is that one conveys that you are entertaining and know how to have a good time, while another conveys weakness and sadness.

    I don't mean to imply that crying actually is a weakness, I am just saying that I can see how thinking that way would lead to not wanting to cry near other people. Plus, you have to open yourself up more to cry in front of people, whereas no one (that I know) feels uncomfortable laughing in front of strangers.
